    Re: What is the name of the entrance test to join the Indian Army?

    To become an officer in Indian Army requires training in a recognised Army Institute. Those who have done 10+2 can apply for National Defence Academy, admission to which is open twice a year. Those who have done Graduation can apply for Indian Military Academy through Civil Defence Services exams which are also conducted twice a year. Both CDS and NDA exams are conducted by UPSC and involves a rigorous procedure for entrance involving a Written test, Physical tests, Medical tests, Group tests and Personal Interview. Tech Graduates and 10+2(PCM) candidates have separate recruitment procedure also for training for Indian Army. Other than these there is also a University Entry Scheme for final and pre-final year students in Engineering courses. For all these notifications is available through Additional Directorate General Recruiting.

    Becoming an Army Officer or a soldier requires lot of courage, will power, dedication, physical and mental strength. The training procedure is rigorous and only someone who is totally dedicated to the service of country should apply for Indian Army. Anyone with a casual attitude is not acceptable in Army. The army life though is very demanding but offers very good remunerations, perks and lifestyle better than any other profession. The Government does everything so that those serving the country have all the facilities like housing, medical insurance, best education for children, canteen facilities, insurance and easy loans. In short army officers have opportunities to lead the best and most satisfying lives.
