    sorry ,you cannot join indian army due to one reason- you have crossed maximum age limit. i checked for different entries but you are not eligible for a single entry. there are many entries where graduation is necessary but age limit is 19 to 25 years,,17 to 24 years 17 to 23 years....but there is aone entry is still available for you is- junior commissioned catering officer( army service corps).eligiblity criteria for this entry is 10+2 or equivalent from any board and age limit is 21 to 27 years.in service corps you have to supply all the necessary things to army in battle field.you will be trained as a army man you will not be allowed to fight. your man task will to supplty weapons,food,water,cloths,and other necessary things.there may be a lot of problems in transport but you will have to solve all these problems.

    No you are not eligible for joining Indian Army.
    Only the candidates below 25 years can joint Indian Army through CDS ( Combined Defense Services Examination ) can join it.

    Educational qualification :
    The candidates age must be in between : 19 years to 24 years.
    After this age limit you cannot be able to apply for CDS examination.

    UPSC every year two times conducts the examination in the month of February and September.

    Thanks
