    Re: What is the exact age limit to join the Indian Army?

    Dear,
    I think that you will not be eligible for it because in 2012 you will cross the age of 19 years and the minimum eligibilities for joining NDA is as follows:-
    1.) Age limitation should be within 16.5 to 19 years.
    2.) Only unmarried male candidates are allowed.
    3.) 10+2 pass students with physics , chemistry , maths .
    4.) Minimum height should be 157 cm with 5cm chest expansion.
    5.) Eyesight should be 6/6 of both the eyes.

    Had you been fallen in this category , you had been eligible for that but sorry to say that you are not eligible.
    Thanks.

    Re: What is the exact age limit to join the Indian Army?

    Hello friend,
    To be part of the Indian Army, you can either apply after qualifying +2 level of exam or after completion of your bachelors degree program.

    If you have qualified +2 level of exam and you are within the age limit of 16 1/2 years- 19 years, you may apply for the NDA exam conducted by the union public service commission.

    If you are a graduate within the age limit of 19-24 years, you may apply for the combined defense service exam conducted by union public service commission.

    So, depending upon your qualification, you may appear for any of the examinations to join the Indian Army.
