    Friend having 21 years old with the Diploma degree obviously there is no possibility to join in Indian Army Wing.

    To join in Army you need to be a Graduate from the recognized University in any discipline first.Afterv that you are to

    crack CDS written/physical/medical tests.

    CDS means combined defence service which entrance exam is taken by UPSC 2 times within a year.

    These are the main qualification you are to obtain first then within 19-24 years you are to appear CDs Army having eligibility.

    Hey friend,

    Indian army is known as one of the defence force of India and there are entrance exam which are conducted in India for candidate to join in it on depending upon the Education qualification which you possess.

    As per the Education qualification of yours you are eligible for the entrance exam and when regarding to the age limit needed for that exam you are exceeding the age limit needed which makes you ineligible for applying for the exam

    In the other case when regarding your age limit there are certain exams which you could write but for that exams you will not be satifying the age limit which is needed.

    So,You are unable to join in Indian Army

Second option will be soldier clerk/store keeper technical arms) you must be a 12th pass in any stream with 50% marks in aggregate and 40% in each of the subjects should have studied and passed english and maths /accts/book keepingin class 10th or 12th. your age should be 17.5 to 23 years of age to apply for the same. If you like to apply for the officers post then you need to complete the graduation and then need to apply for the CDS examination because you cannot apply for the NDA examination as your age is already crossed the limit. to apply for IMA and OTA your age should be 19 to 24 years and 19 to 25 years respectively. for more details log on to www.upsc.gov.in thank you.

    Hi Kumar,
    its good that you have completed your diploma and you want to join defence. Kumar, keeping your other qualifications aside, let me tell you that you cannot join army through NDA (National Defence Academy) because you have surpassed the upper age limit for it which is 19 years but never mind, there is still a way. I suggest you to get admission in your graduation program, i.e, btech. You need not join btect in the first year because there is possibility for diploma holders to have a lateral entry in the second year of btech. By the time you complete the btech, you will be 24 years of age. Now, keeping your age in mind, you will be ineligible for navy and airforce, but luckily for you the maximum age for army is 24 years. so I think there will still be one chance left for you in the army. Now, this will also be your last chance, so study like its your last chance. The other criteria for CDS exam are:

    1.Candidate has to be an Indian.

    2. The candidate has to be unmarried (can be a male or female).

    3. Candidate should have completed graduation or should be in the final year of it.

    Hope all goes well and you get selected in army.

    All the best!!!

    Hello

    At present there are no entries for you as per your educational qualification and your age.
    Your current educational qualification is diploma which is equivalent to 10+2 that is intermediate only.

    As intermediate your qualification at present there are no entries for you.
    There were few entries on the basis of 10+2 qualification,those were
    1)TES(Technical Entry Scheme)
    2)NDA(National Defence Academy)

    Both the entries were for intermediate candidates,but their age must be between 16.5 to 19.5 years,your present is 21 years.
    Hence not possible as of now.

    For more details visit the website of army
