    Re: How to join Indian Air Force after B.Tech?

    Since you are a B.Tech student you have an option to enter the technical side. There is an option to enter by the University entry scheme. Since you are interested in joining the flying section you will need to appear for the CDSE exam. On clearing this you will need to clear the Pilot Aptitude Battery Test. In case you are a female you will need to appear for the Short Service Commission Test instead. Thereafter there is synchronization and psychomotor skill test. There are also two machine tests. It is important that you be physically fit for this post. There is also there is an option to go through by appearing for the NDA test.

    Citizens of India can join the Air force in three branches. They are Flying, technical and the ground branch. Engineering students can join Air force team after undergoing the selection procedures. As to join the flying branch candidates has to pass the NDA or the CDSE exam conducted by the UPSC. Male candidates have to pass the pilot aptitude battery test (PABT) and women candidate have to pass the Short Service Commission (SSC).

    Don't go for NDA now. That is only after 12th, now I think your age also exceeds, after 19 years of age you can't write NDA.
    and joining NDA after doing M tech is like wasting of your degrees, as 12th standard student also get into NDA.
    Go for CDS, if you wanna join army. Its a exam for getting into army as a engineer.
    note that its only for electrical, and mechanical branches only. If you are from IT or CSE you will not be allowed for CDS also.
    As you had done your m tech, try to utilize it.
    Go for other government organizations like ISRO, DRDO etc which will offer you a better post as a scientist if you qualified for that.
    Choose a good path.
    All the best.
