    My dear friend.

    It is good to know that you want to join Indian Army.

    You can do that after 12th or after Graduation.

    After 12th there is NDA exam.

    NDA stands for National Defense Academy.

    You can take the exam after doing 12th.

    Age limit for so is 16.5-19 years.

    You can also Join Indian Army after Graduation.

    For that you will have to give the CDS exam.

    CDS stands for Combined Defense Services.

    The age limit for so is 19-24 years.

    Both NDA and CDS are conducted by UPSC.

    UPSC stands for Union Public Service Commission.

    The height requirement for Indian Army for Both Men and Women are shown below:-



    I hope this information will be satisfactory.

    You can find more details about Indian Army on the UPSC website http://www.upsc.gov.in

    Thank You.
