I want to join defense. What will i have to do ?
Interesting to know you are interested in the Defense sector.But prior to that, you would have to decide which sector in defense:
In general, students opt for the Army sector.So in terms of Army, note the eligibility and selection criteria.
One can join Army, either through,
The Permanent commission is provided by IMA(Indian Military Academy)- Dehradun. To join Permanent commission one would have to clear the NDA exam conducted by the UPSC Eligibility being 12th Science.A Graduate would appear for the CDSE Exam again conducted by the UPSC
Short-service commission by OTA(Officers Training Academy)- Chennai.Any graduate or 12th pass student are eligible. This is a service for a short duration, after completing their tenure, candidates are given a chance to renew and join permanent commission.
Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck.............
