    Is it possible to join Defence services at the age of 29 years having two post graduate degrees?

    Hi, My name is Mr. Pranab Dihingia and I did M.Sc (Physics) and M.Phil from Dibrugarh University (Assam). I am 29 yrs old. I have a deep desire to serve in Indian Defence Services.
    Can I still have a chance to join Indian Air Force/Indian Navy/Indian Army? If yes, through what procedure I should apply?

    Dear

    At the age of 29 you can not join in defence sector.

    The age limit to join in army is 19 to 25 for graduates.

    And Air force is 19 to 23 and for navy is 19 to 24.

    If you are a PG candidate you can appear for the CDS exam till 27 age.

    But your age is more than that so you can not join in the defence sector.

    Thank you dear.

    Hi,
    You must be below 28 years of age to go to any of the defence force in any type of entry.

    Max age requirement goes in TECHNICAL BRANCH...19-28 years and
    GROUND DUTY FORCES...19-28 years.

    So you are not eligible for any entries in defense forces.

    Best of luck..

    Hello Sir

    Its good to see your interest in Serving the country ,but sorry you have crossed the age limits as prescribed by the exam criteria.

    According to the best of my knowledge ,the maximum age to apply for the posts is 27 years old which dont makes you eligible for appearing for the tests.

    But you have some other options also .

    SUGGESTIONS: As you have good qualifications,you can serve the country if you desire, by providing coaching to the students,who wish to apply for the Entrance tests for joining Indian Defence.

    So you can have your coaching centre for this purpose and serve the country indirectly .

    rest all Depends upon your wish .

    Thanks

    No dear friend it is not possible to join defense after the age of 27 as you have mention your age is 29so you are not eligible. 27 is the dead line age limit for all the defense service you try in any other service like custom,railway,IAS,IPS etc
