    hello friend

    It's not necessary to have NCC.You can definately join Indian Army without having NCC Certificate.

    you can join indian army through UPSC exam.

    if you go through the exam then no need for NCC certificate.

    criteria to attain UPSC exam is

    graduation in any field field with 55% marks.

    age limit 21-30.

    all the best........

    Dear friend No NCC is not necessary for joining Indian army any one can apply. there are some

    reservation for NCC cadets and also they get some more grace marks then a normal

    student and they get direct ssb without entrance exam. it is not necessary but if you

    take NCC then it will help you very much to join Indian army as a officer.

    best of luck.

    Hi,
    since you have an army background you must know that there is no necessity of ncc certificate for entry into defense forces.

    Though if you have a ncc c certificate you will be eligible for 1 special entry called ncc special entry scheme for defence forces.

    But other than that there is no relevance of ncc certificate in any of the entries in defense forces
    you can apply for entries like..
    cds
    afcat
    ssc
    ues


    best of luck..

    Re: Whether NCC is necessary or not for joining Indian Army?

    Hello,

    No it is not necessary to have NCC to get into defence.

    Although a candidate having NCC gets a lot of benefit to get selected but it is not the sole criteria to get into defence.

    There are different entries for NCC to get into candidate but you will also have lot of opportunities after completing your graduation.

    You can be a part of Indian Army through CDSE and UES.

    Your father is a defence personnel so it is going to benefit you a lot.

    Go for it

    Thank you

    Hi,

    It is not necessary that you may join NCC or not.


    But if you have NCC certificate then you fight for reserve seat of NCC , so you take a

    small benefit of NCC .

    But if you not join ncc then you fight for civilian seat in selection procedure.

    Thanks.

    Re: Whether NCC is necessary or not for joining Indian Army?

    dear sowmiya,

    NCC training is not necessary to join indian army , air force, or navy.
    candidates get training when they volunteer for themselve.

    NCC training is not mandatory to join any defence service of india.
    you may join air force, as well as army without having training of NCC.

    but definitely it helps you if you are trained for so,
    there is reservation for having ncc 'c' certificate holders in CDS exam,
    in army and naval wing.

    all the best.....

    Hello friend,
    Indian army is one among three forces in the defense fleet.One can join the Indian territorial army after 12th board or after graduation correspondingly.First of all you must be a Indian citizen and must be unmarried.NCC is not at all compulsory for joining the army,it is just another means through which you can get into the army.If you have procured "C" certificate from b grade exam you can join NCC special entry scheme.

    Also there are many other special entry schemes like University entry scheme,Technical entry scheme which are allotted for Final year graduate students.Criteria is that they should not have any backlogs respectively.

    Procedure:

    *Written test
    *SSB or AFSB interview
    *Medical and fitness test.

    Re: Whether NCC is necessary or not for joining Indian Army?

    hello sowmiya,
    see there is no compulsion to join ncc to join indian army.
    it just gives you an extra entry to try from (NCC special entry)
    so if you want to join defence forces, you can join them without joining NCC even. it is perfectly fine.
    so complete you graduation and then apply for any entry you want.

    Best of luck
