    Hello

    YES WOMEN CAN GET INTO FIELDWORK IN ARMED FORCES.

    Now CDSE notifications are released twice in a year,in the month of May and December.
    You can fill the form online.In the website of upsc.


    http://www.upsconline.nic.in/

    Although through CDSE,women can apply for only OTA(Officers Training Academy) that is a entry in army.
    But there is AFCAT which is for both women and men,a entry scheme in Air Force.

    Although entry in Navy is little difficult for women,but in army through OTA after graduation and in Air Force through AFCAT is possible.

    For more details visit the website of air force,army,navy.
    www.careerairforce.nic.in-air force website.
    www.nausena-bharti.nic.in-navy website.
    www.joinindianarmy.nic.in-army website.

    Also notifications of CDSE and AFCAT is uploaded for your reference.

    Hi

    The CDS exam forms are open you can apply for the exam now online from the UPSC website www.upsconline.nic.in

    If you are in the final year of your graduation only then you will be able to apply for the CDS exam.

    Your age for the exam must be in betwen 19-23 years.

    Girls can also apply for the exam after graduation.

    Girls can apply in the army fieldwork through this exam.

    If you want to join the Indian air force or Indian Navy then you must have physics and Math in your graduation.

    Friend, presently you are only in third year of B.Tech degree, so at this stage you are not eligible for CDS Examination. You will be eligible for CDS Examination only in the final year of B.Tech degree.You can apply for CDS Examination two times when it is advertised two times in a year by UPSC.As you are interested only in Indian Army. So you will only be eligible for Officer Training Academy (OTA). Girls are entitled to apply only for OTA - Officer Training Academy.Eligibility for a GIRL who wants to join OTA (Officer Training Academy): # Must be of Indian origin # Within the age limit of 19-25 years # Must not be married # Must have any graduation degree from the recognised university # Must not have any criminal and illegal connections # Must have minimum height of 152 cm # Must have eye sight of 6/6 or 6/9In Officer Training Academy, girls candidates are inducted into Indian Army as officer ranks. These women army officer never have to go for field duty. Women army officer always get official job instead of field job.
