    Dear Guest,

    There are various schemes and ways to join the Indian Army. The first being NDA(National Defence Academy). I am afraid you are now age barred, as the criteria states that the candidate should be not more than 19 years on 1st day of the commencement of the course. The courses commence in January and July. Both have already commenced. So you shall not be eligible for next year's courses.

    The second option is direct entry through 10+2 TES(Technical Entry Scheme). For this the criteria is as under :

    Age : 16 to 19 & 1/2 yrs as of first day of the month in which course is due to commence
    Qualification : 12th Class of 10+2 System of Education/Equivalent with a minimum aggregate of 70% in Physics, Chemistry & Maths(PCM)

    The training for these courses commence in January and July.

    The third option is to appear for the Common Defence Services Exam. The age criteria for this is :
    Candidates born not earlier than 2nd January, 1984 and not later than 1st January, 1989 are eligible. However, for this a candidate must have Degree of a recognised University or it's equivalent. So, you try this option after graduation.

    I hope I was able to answer the query to your satisfaction.
