    The candidates who have 10th standard qualification can join Indian Army. The selection process is based on the exam conducted by UPSC. This is for the post of Soldiers and Technical officers. For the post of officer the candidates requires training from any reputed Army Institute. Those who have 10+2 can apply for the NDA and for joining IMA the candidate should be a graduate. The NDA and CDS exam are carried out by UPSC twice in a year. The procedure includes a written test, physical test and medical test. A group test and personal interview will be there also at final stage. Separate exams are conducted for both the graduates and 10+2 candidates. The training will be also given separately. For the post of technical assistant the candidates should be between 16 to 32 years and to join as a soldier the age limit is 16 to 30 years.

    You have to attend certain entrance tests to join the Indian Army. UPSC carries out the tests for selecting the eligible candidates in Army. So many vacancies arise in Army like for selecting engineering graduates, other graduates, intermediates and so on. You havenít mentioned the designation in which you wish to work in Army. The eligibility criterions vary. However, it is certain that Indian Nationals alone can join the Indian Army. Notifications for the various exams in Army will be published in chief employment dailies. Once, you clear the tests, you may have to attend 1 - 2 years training. Those who successfully complete the training can be a part of the Indian Army. Visit the official website of UPSC for knowing more about the Indian Army exams.

    Hi


    ~:: INFORMATION ON INDIAN ARMY ::~



    The UPSC ( Union Public Service Commission ) conducts an exam called the NDA - National Defense Academy which aims at the recruitment of the candidates for the Indian ARMY, NAVY & AIR FORCE.


    The Basic Eligibility Criteria for NDA I is :


    1. You should be a 12th pass from a recognized school or board with a minimum 50% aggregate.


    2. You should have studies Physics and Mathematics as compulsory subjects if you are applying for the Navy / Air Force.


    3. Your age should be between 16.5 to 19 years.


    4. You should be physically fit to apply.


    So anybody who fulfills the above criteria's is eligible to apply for the NDA I exam.


    --> The selection is based purely on the merit of the NDA exam. No biased selection is there. No reservation even. You have to come in merit if you want to join IMA.


    --> The Selection Procedure is first you sit for the exam. If you crack it then you would be called for a Physical Test and SSB Personal Interview.
    On successful clearance of all the above, you would be trained for an year before you join the Army.
