    You know that Indian defence industry as well as armed forces already facing a lot corruption cases .Now every person in Armed forces don't want to face more problems so they are taking every step carefully whether it is recruitment process or procurement process.You are underweight so you will be rejected directly,if you want to avoid rejection then only options is to increase weight by any method . Physical standards for SSB interview are-Min Height for male- 157.5 cm,there is relaxation of 5 cm for north eastern state candidates.Min Height for female- 142 cm and weight is 36 kg.Weight- 18 years candidates must have min 44 kg with 152.2 cms and 22 years candidates must have min 77 kg with 169 cms. These are relation between height and weight.Chest- Chest must be well developed,min expansion after full inspiration must be 5 cms.Girls are exempted from this criteria.Bones- No disease related to bones and no joint pain.

    Friend I think you are eligible in all respect other than Height and Weight you have mentioned your height is 5' 7 '' and weight 52kgs.There are 3(three)brancehs of AFCAT eg. Flying/Technical/Ground duty Branch if you are qualified for any of these branches including written/physical/medical then you must not worry your both parameter of height & weight is fully correct, and you are
    not under weight your weight is more than minimum. So, for this issue you will not be rejected.

    Thank You,
