    For males the minimum height needed is 157 cms and for females it is 153 cms.
    If you do not satisfy this Physical standard , you are not allowed to join Defence.

    yes but there are height relaxation for people from East India and Gorkhas........

    Re: Are short Heighted people allowed in Defence?

    Hello friend,

    There are guidelines provided by defense forces for various medical and physical tests respectively.The answer to your question is that the minimum height requirement in most of the defense forces is 157.5 cms for men and 152 cms for women,no relaxation will be given regarding the physical standards since the training involves planned technique's for framed candidates.Weight ratio is correlated according to the height ratio hence you must check the height and weight chart to check for your eligibility.Other than that you must also match the eyesight vision standards without fail.

    For Indian territorial army/Indian air force:



    For Indian navy:




    ALL THE BEST
