Hello There,

Interesting to know you are interested in the Defense sector.
But prior to that, you would have to decide which sector in defense:

  • Army
  • Navy
  • Airforce

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,

  • Permanent Commission
    or
  • Short service commission

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.

Check:

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck.............
