    Re: What is the procedure and criteria for female candidates to join Indian Defence Services?

    Hello

    You have completed your degree in B.E in Bio Technology and you are female candidate. So candidate who is engineer as well as female can enter in defence by all possible ways.Women have opportunities to join the Indian navy after their graduation. There are lots of girls who are interested in joining the Navy. Sadly, they are not aware of the procedure.

    You want to enter in Navy Or Air Force then you can apply for short service commissioned , CDS ( Combined Defense Services ) examination , Ground Duty Examination.

    CDS ( Combined Defense Services ) examination which is conducted by UPSC ( Union Public Service Commission ) twice in every year conducts the common entrance exam for the entry into CDS.
    You have to clear this exam to join one of Naval Academy , Air Force Academy .

    If you want to join Naval Academy through CDS then you should have degree in B.Sc ( Physics & Mathematics ) or in Engineering and your age must be 19 years to 23 years. To join Air Force you should be Engineer or you have degree from recognized university ( with Physics & Mathematics at +2 level ) and your age must be 19 years to 23 years.
    Interesting about this CDS Exam is there is special entry for women only which is known as OTA ( Officers Training Academy ). To enter in OTA you should have only degree in any stream and your age must be in between 19 years to 25 years.

    If you want to go for Navy Wing then you can apply for Short Service Commissioned.

    Eligibility for Indian navy short service commissioned


    - For this exam unmarried men and women are applicable.

    - Your age must be in between 19.5 Years to 25 Years

    - B.Sc student with minimum 60% marks in Physics,Mathematics & Electronics.

    - M.Sc student with minimum 55% marks in Physics, Mathematics & Electronics

    So you can not apply SSC as you are not B.Sc graduate.So to enter in Navy you have only one exam which is CDS Exam.

    If you want to join Air Force then you can apply Ground Duty Examination. You must have a completed degree from a recognized University with 60% aggregate marks.
    You have age limits of 20 year and 27 years.

    There are other exams also to join Air Force like Technical Examination , Flying Branch Examination. But for these exam only male candidates are eligible.
