    hi

    Procedure to apply for Army, Air Force and Navy
    To join any of these streams first of all you need to complete your 12th standard. Also do take the science stream during the 12th standard as this also one of the requirements. Make sure to start preparing for the entrance exams which are conducted. There are quite a few training academies like the Indian Military Academy for those interested in joining Army. If you would like to join the Air Force then you have options like Dundigul. You need to decide which of these is best suited for you. To join any of these streams it is must that you should be physically fit. On clearing the entrance exam you will also need to clear the physical fitness test. Any one disqualified during this stage will be fully eliminated and not eligible to join any of these streams.


    good luck
