    Re: Why Girls are not eligible for NDA Entrance exam?

    Dear friend,
    You are right girls are not eligible for NDA entrance examination,because in NDA candidates are trained for 3 yrs and army doesn't expect girls to fight in the war,so girls don't need such type of training.

    if you want to join army,then there is no need to worry,you can apply for SSC(Short Service Commision) fro women.Candidates selected through this commision can serve only for 10yrs,after that they have to retire.

    Candidates selected through this procedure will get training in OTA,Chennai.

    Eligibility for OTA is follows:

    1.You should be a unmarried Women, issueless widows who have not remarried and issueless divorcees (in possession of divorce documents) who have not remarried are eligible. They should have been born not earlier than 2nd July, 1987 and not later than 1st July, 1993.

    2.You should have a graduation degree of a recognized university or equivalent.

    3.If you are studying in final year degree course and have yet to pass final year degree examination or equivalent examination can apply for the examination

    4.Your age should be between 18-23 yrs old.
    I appreciate your decision to join defence forces.

    best of lk..

    Dear friend,,

    Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), India conducts National Defence Academy (NDA exam) to recruit candidates to
    The Army, Navy and the Air force wings of the National Defence Academy (NDA).



    This programme is for unmarried males only

    >>unmatched lifestle.
    GIRLS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT ALL,,AS NO COUNTRY WANTS TO SEND GIRLS AT FRONT IN WARS.

    Re: Why Girls are not eligible for NDA Entrance exam?

    Hi dude yes Girls are not eligible for the National Defense Academy examination because through NDA you will get the jobs that are quite difficult to do by girls. I mean to say that ground duty jobs are not given to you through National Defense Academy examination. And for NDA you need to be physically fit but compared to buys girls are very week in that age thatís the reason why girls are not eligible to apply for the National Defense Academy examination. But they can apply for the Indian Army, Air force and Navy through Combined defense service examination.
    girls can apply for this examination after the completion of their engineering as this examination is conducted by the UPSC twice in a year.

    Re: Why Girls are not eligible for NDA Entrance exam?

    NDA is one of the options to enter the defense field. But this option involves a lot of physical training. Females will not be able to undergo the same. Hence females are not allowed to apply for the same. Females who wish to enter this stream can do so through the OTA scheme. They need to have completed their graduation for the same. The age limit will vary between 25-28 years. You can visit any of the defense sites to know the options available for you.

    Yes you are right that for nda girls are not eligible,there are many reasons behind this.As you know getting selection for nda is so tough same as training under this too tough which can only be perform by boys.But dont think it in negative way,it is decided by nda officers who are very talented,so if they had decided this so there reasons are right.Secondly there are more conditions which had not mentioned.Dont be nervous you can try in Indian army.Both are respective posts,so dont felt bad.

    Re: Why Girls are not eligible for NDA Entrance exam?

    FRIEND,

    GIRLS are not eligible for NDA entrance exams because after clearing the NDA exam you will join NATIONAL DEFENCE ACADEMY which is made only for Boys so that's why girls are not eligible for NDA exams.

    One more reason is that the duration of NDA training is 3 years and in don't think a girl can withstand that much of physical training for continuously three years and 1 year in IMA.

    This is the main reason's why girls are not eligible for NDA exams.

    A girl can also join INDIAN ARMY through CDS or UES entry and she will join the Officers training academy in Chennai and one more which is recently made in Bihar.

    The Exams which a girl has to give are:
    • GENERAL KNOWLEDGE
    • ENGLISH

    CDS exam is conducted twice in a year and TGC entry is also twice in a year.After clearing exams you have to appear for the SSB interview.Then you will join OTA.

    GOOD LUCK.

    Re: Why Girls are not eligible for NDA Entrance exam?

    FRIEND,

    Girls cannot appear in the NDA examination because girls are not allowed to join NATIONAL DEFENCE ACADEMY
    It is solely made for the Unmarried Male candidates.So that's why girls cannot appear for the NDA Exam.

    The Duration of NDA training is Three years and I don't think Girls can handle that training for continuously for three
    year and then one and half year in Indian Military acdemy.

    So these are the Main reason why girls cannot join NATIONAL DEFENCE ACADEMY.

    The eligibility criteria for NDA is:

    1)You should be a 12th pass student.

    2)If you are currently appearing for the 12th board exam then also you can appear for the NDA exam.

    3)Your age must be between 16.5 years to 19 years.

    4)You must be an INDIAN CITIZEN.

    5)You must be a Unmarried male candidate.

    GOOD LUCK.
