    This is option is not open to girls. They are not allowed to take the NDA test. But you do have another option to enter the army. Since you are a graduate you can apply through the OTA. For that you need to clear the Short Service Commission exam. Earlier this option was restricted to men.This is the only option by women can enter the army. CDSE conducts this exam. You can appear for it after you turn 21 years. In the mean time you should start preparing for the same. You can collect all the information regarding the same from the official website.

    As to appear in the NDA exam a candidate needs to be within 19 years of age and only male candidates are eligible to apply. But as you mentioned that you are from Arts stream, you are eligible to join the Indian Army through the Women’s Special Entry. As to appear in the Women’s special recruitment drive, a candidate needs to have a graduation with first class. There are also few other schemes for women candidate for entering in to the army. Combined Defence service exam, which was previously meant for male candidates, is now available for women candidates too. The female candidates will be given SSC and provide training at the OTA. The University entry scheme is also available for female candidates after attaining graduation. The UPSC is the sole authority which carries out these exams. The candidates will get the entire information from the official website.

    This question asked many times, and the answer will be the same. No, girls are not eligible for NDA examination. This is only for Unmarried male candidates between the age of 16.5 to 19 years. So, if you are interested then you can join army by women special entry or through CDS examination. And to apply for this examination, you have to complete your graduation with atleast 60% marks. And to join army you have to clear the SSC exam. But to apply for this exam, your age should more than 21 years and after clear this exam, you will get chance to join army. CDS exam are conducted by UPSC 2 times in a year. And if you want to get complete information, then please visit the official website of UPSC -

    Dear,
    Sorry to inform you but the girls are not allowed to apply for the NDA exam.
    Only unmarried male candidates are allowed for the exam.
    Age limitation is between 16.5 to 19 years.
    Moreover, 10+2 pass students with Physics , Chemistry , Maths ( minimum -60%) are only eligible .
    So , try something else.
    Thanks.

    Well for NDA female candidates are not allowed to sit only male candidates are eligible to give the entrance, even if female candidate is allowed also you are not eligible as you crossed the age limit for NDA. Well still if a female candidate want to go for defense services they can go after their graduation through CDS exam conducted by UPSC.

    All the best.

    No girls are not eligibile for NDA.
    NDA is only for unmarried male candidates.
    But you have other options also to serve the nation.
    You can work as a officer with the Indian Air Force.
    You can work as a pilot, navigator or a technical or
    ground duty officer in Indian air force.
    You also have the option of joining the Army through SSC .
    You will receive training at OTA, Chennai. You should be a Graduate/Post-Graduate to apply.

    No, I think girls cannot apply for the NDA
    This exam is only for the boys……..
    So if you are interested in Indian army, navy and air force then you can apply for these through CDS exam……
    Girls can give the CDS exam for this you should be graduated
    And the candidate must be unmarried
    And your age should be between 21 to 30 years
    The candidate should be an Indian
    So you can apply for this after graduation……………

    No, it is not possible for girls to apply. To get in to the post of an Army officer the candidate should pass the NDA exam. There are certain eligibility requirements for one to apply for the exam. Only unmarried males are eligible to apply for the examination. If you are really interested to serve Indian Army, you can apply for non-technical jobs. In order to apply for such jobs the candidate should possess graduation as the minimum qualification. Moreover, the candidate should attend and pass SSC exam to get in to such posts.
