    A new system of recruitment has been introduced with effect from April 01, 1998 . Under the revised system, recruitment of jawans in the Army is carried out through open recruitment rallies only. Recruitment rallies are planned well in advance, keeping in view the geographical, demographical and topographical considerations. At least one such rally is held in each month, combining districts, areas and regions, depending upon the response anticipated, thereby giving every aspirant, irrespective of his place of residence, minimum one opportunity in a year to get himself enrolled in the Army. In the old system of Branch Recruiting Office-oriented recruitment, aspirants had to travel long distances to reach the nearest BRO for enrolment, whereas in the revised system, recruitment has been brought closer to their area of domicile. Advance publicity regarding an ensuing rally in a particular area/district is given by putting up hoardings, advertisement in local newspapers, radio etc.

    Hello sir,

    *WRITTEN TEST:Maths paper 300 marks and general ability with 600 marks,including Ebglish and General knowledge as "A" AND "B" papers.

    *SSB INTERVIEW:Once you've written the exam if you are selected they will call for an interview in various centres like Bangalore,Bhopal etc where you can enroll yourself into the army.

    *MEDICAL AND FITNESS TESTS:

    *Basically must be an Indian citizen with valid documents
    *Must be unmarried
    *Age limit is between 16.5 to 19 years while joining NDA.
    *Height requirement is minimum 157.5 CMS for men and 152 CMS for women
    *Weight ratio is correlated from height ratio
    *Eyesight vision must be 6/6 or 6/36 for distant vision and 6/9 for spectacles corrected vision.

    Dear,Yeah there are options for your son to get into Indian Army with a commerce background.The option for him is that he can write the NDA Exam.If he had completed with PCM means he could have also applied for TES Exam,but as he has completed with commerce background he can write that exam.

    Anyways it will be good for your son,to join in Indian Army through NDA Exam which offers candidates to join in defence forces.

    Details about NDA:

    NDA Exam is one of the defence service exam conducted by UPSC every year in favor of candidates to join in defence forces like:
    • Indian Army
    • Indian Navy
    • Indian Air Force
    As you have asked for joining in Indian Army you need to satisfy the eligibility criteria for applying for this exam and they are:

    Eligibility for NDA:
