    If you are an Air Sqn NCC Senior division C certificate holder then you can apply through DG NCC/ respective NCC Air Squadron
    Then you would have to appear for AFCAT.

    Nationality :You must be either a citizen of India, or a subject of Bhutan or Nepal, or a Tibetan refugee who came over to India before the 1st January, 1962 with the intention of permanently settling in India

    Hi

    As you may know that the India Air Force grants 3 entries to the freshers and which can be listed as follows :-

    NDA - National Defense Academy
    This is conducted by the UPSC every year for the intake of Army, Navy and Air Force. The age should be within 16.5 to 19 years for this. However Commerce and Arts students cannot apply for the Air Force nor Navy..

    Another is AFCAT which is Air Force Common Admission Test which is conducted for their Technical and Flying branch recruitment. Its age limit is 19-23 years for the Flying branch and 21-25 years for the Technical Officer TA.

    The lastly is CDS - Combined Defense Services which is again conducted by the UPSC for the Officers entries in the Army, Navy and Air Force. So you can also apply for that..Age limit for this is 21-25 years.
    Hope this helps
    All the best
    Regards
    RANJEET
