    >>Depending on their merit list ranking, are sent to Indian Military Academy.


    >>Candidate should be in the age of 19-24.


    >>The course commences each year in the month of January and July.


    If you satisfy all these above criteria's then you will be eligible to apply for the NDA and CDS exam.

    Hi friend,

    You have not mentioned what is your educational back ground.

    There are different schemes for entering the Indian Air force.

    One has to attend the CDS exam which is conducted by the UPSC for joining the Indian Air force.

    The candidates should be between the age limit of 18-23 years.

    The candidates can join after 12th class if you have studied science as the main subjects.

    You can join the technical posts after completing your graduation in engineering also.
