    Re: Can i apply for job in Indian Army with Commerce background? Please tell me about the complete process?

    Hai Friend,

    Yes, you can apply to Indian army with Commerce background.

    But, with commerce background, you are only eligible to the Army wing.

    You are not eligible for the Navy and the Air Force wing.

    To get into Indian army, you need to write the NDA exam.


    The Eligibility rules for the NDA exam are:


    1)you must have passed 12th standard.


    2)your age must lie in between 16.5 to 19 years only.


    3)you must be the citizen of India.


    4)You must be Male candidate and must be unmarried.


    To get a job in the Indian army after 12th, you need to qualify either in National Defence Academy(NDA) Exam.


    Prepare well for the exam since the exam will be very tough.


    After clearing written test, interview and physical tests, then only you are selected in to the indian army.


    once you entered into army, they will give training and appoint you as an officer based on your qualification.


    From there depending on your work, experience you will get promotions.


    All the best.
