    It's a general issue faced by maximum of CDS aspirants.

    They find is bit difficult to measure age limit for respective defence services and the main reason for which is that
    Union Public Service Commission (authority which conducts CDSE) does not mention the age criteria is lay man terms.

    However, agem limit for respective services are differ from each other and they are as follows:-


    Age Limit for Army

    Those who will be trained at Officer's Training Academy, Chennai: 19-25 years.
