    heya

    sorry for the news

    but women are not eligible for NDA

    this is because of the physical weakness that women undergo in the age between 18-21

    so the NDA hasn't provided any reservation for women.

    still there are many many ways to help the country but getting into different fields ...

    All the best do well

    Re: Are women eligible to join NDA?

    No women's/girl's are not eligible for NDA exam.To appear for NDA exam,the candidate should have complete 12th class with PCM stream from a recognized university and his age should be between 16 1/2 to 19 years.Then only he can appear for NDA exam.

    NDA exam is conducted by Union Public Service Commission every year twice to take qualified student into different defense service like Indian Air Force,Indian Navy and Indian Army.

    So you cannot apply for NDA exam.If you are that much interest in joining defense service,then don't upset,you can appear for CDS exam to join in defense service after complete your graduation course.
    This exam is also conducted by Union Public Service commission to recruit the students for same purpose as NDA exam does.

    CDS exam notification will release in the month of Oct and June every year.And exam will held on Feb and Sept respectively.

    Dear ma'am,
    No ma'am girls are not eligible for NDA entrance examination.NDA allows only boys.

    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.

    If you are selected through this commission you can serve only for 10 yrs,after that you have to retire.Time of service can be extended to 4 yrs more on your performance base.

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

    Eligibility for OTA is follows:

    1.You should be a unmarried Women.

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


    3.Your age should be between 18-23 yrs old.

    Other than OTA you can also try for IFA and navy.You can appear for CDS exam to join air-force and navy .

    I appreciate your decision to join defence forces.

    best of lk..

    Re: Are women eligible to join NDA?

    Hello friend !!

    NDA stands for National Defense Academy.

    This is an Entrance Examination conducted by UPSC in order to recruit the candidates into Govt Civil Services like :

    National Defence/Military Academy
    Naval Academy (Exclusive branch)
    Air Force

    The Eligibility for this NDA is like :

    You must be Unmarried Male.
    Your educational qualification must be 10+2 passed out.
    And your age must be in between 16.5 years to 19 years only.
    You must be physically fit.

    So as per this statements no WOMEN are allowed for NDA services.

    Reason :

    You are not allowed because, there will be many Physical Tests which will be carried out before recruiting the candidates into NDA services, so for these tests Girls doesn't suit and also they cannot satisfy the Physical Requirements.

    Girls are also not allowed due to their mental ability standards, which are essential in NDA.

    Girls cannot bear and handle certain situations where only Gents can handle them, so due to this Girls aren't allowed for NDA.

    Note :

    Someone mentioned above that Girls can enter into Military forces through CDSE board, but let me tell you CDSE also considers only Unmarried Male Candidates for the following :

    Indian Military Academy
    Indian Naval Academy
    Air Force Academy
    Officers Training Academy
    Officers Training Academy

    So for Girls, there is no possibility for getting into NDA even through CDSE also.





    But if you are seriously interested in serving the country being a Girl, you have an Option in Merchant Navy.

    The Merchant Navy is an industry which deals with transporting cargo and passengers by sea using ships.

    The Eligibility for Merchant Navy is like :

    The Qualification process is based on educational, qualification, age, and physical standards.

    You should have passed 10 and 12 standard with a minimum mark of 55% from any recognized board of education.

    If applying after 12th standard the age must not be less than 20, in case of any graduate age must not be more than 22.

    There is an age relaxation available for female (2 yrs) and SC/ST /OBC (5 yrs) candidates.

    The eyesight should be 6/6 in each eye without any visual problem.

    So if you satisfy this criteria you can step into Merchant Navy.

    Good Luck !!

    Eligibility for NDA exam:-


    you must have to passed at least the 12th class from a recognized university or board.
    Your age must lies in between 16.5-19 years.
    You must be Indian.
