I am not a graduate, I'm 23years old now, 4 long years of break in studies, I want to join the army but how? What position can I join for? I've a NCC "C" certificate, now what should I do? I don't have any friends who knows about army. How to join,where to go,what designations would be in army for me etc. I kindly request you to please make some time and let me know the procedure is and if I'm eligible to join the army. Please thank you in advance.

    Regards,
    Vamsi Vikram

    Re: How To Join Indian Army?

    To join the army requires the candidate to be very courageous and open to face any difficult situations. Since you are a 12th pass the best option is to appear for the NDA exam. But for that there are restrictions like age criteria and educational qualifications. You should not have crossed 19 1/2 years of age. Since you completed 12th standard in 2006 you would have surely cross the age limit required. You do have other options like appearing for CDS, SSC etc. But for appearing for these exam a minimum of graduation is a must. Also if you plan to pursue these courses and then appear for these exams you would have crossed the maximum age limit. You do have other options like joining as a soldier or commissioned officer. For these the 50% in 12th standard is sufficient.

    Choosing career in Indian Army is good thing as far as concerned. These people are an important part of the Indian Defence. They protect our country from foreign attacks. The candidates who have passed the 12th can join in Indian Army. The candidates passed in 10+2 in science subjects can join NDA and the graduate candidates can apply for IMA. An exam is conducted by UPSC for joining NDA. The test includes a written test, physical test and medical test. There will be group tests and a personal interview too. The training will be given after qualifying all this. However since its been 4 years you have crossed the age limit required.

    The option for you to join indian army is as a soldier or commissioned officer. For this you need 505 in 10+2.As you have crossed the maximum age limit you are not eligible for NDA exam.And as you have not completed your graduation til date you cant sit for CDS too.

    Re: How To Join Indian Army?

    There are many options to join Indian Army ..but your case is a bit different because you now can not give NDA or neither sit for CDS because you dont have a graduation degree.But you need to o wory at all because there are some entries in the Army for lower ranks Like Warrant officer ..If suppose you clear it and get entry into Indian Army ,Then You will have chances to Give exams for the higher posts like Leiutinant and Captan ..so never loose hope and give a try...

    Re: How To Join Indian Army?

    One can join in army in two ways , one is through NDA , and another one is through CDS SSC exam .
    The qulification for the first way is that you should pass 12th with science with 55% minimum marks .The age should be within 16.5-19 ......
    Since your age is above 19 you will not be selected for the NDA ..
    In the second way the eligibility is that you should be a graduate ......
    Since you don't have the graduation you will not be eligible ,and if you go for the graduation then by completing the gradution you will cross the maximum age limit .
    So through this ways you can't reach in Indian army ,and an another option is that you can join as an ordinary soldier in the Indian army .....
