    For Army officer Rank, you can apply after graduation. There are two ways to reach to Army officer Rank:
    1) through NDA - after 12th prepare and appear for NDA exam and clear it after going through complete process, then you will be in NDA academy for 4 year regress training. Along with your training you will be completing your graduation also from military school. at successful completion of your course, your will be ranked.
    2) through CDS - after graduation, prepare and appear for CDS exam, then clear it after going through complete process(that include interview and other rounds of SSB) . Then you will be in IMA for 18 months for your regress army training , on successful Completion you will be ranked as Army Officer.

    If you have passed 12th,appear for NDA.You can get into defence service through NDA after 12th.The age limit is 16.5-19years.The age limit is at the time of joining the academy and not at the time of applying so you will be 16.5 till you join NDA.Prepare for NDA and apply.Check the website of UPSC for NDA notification dates of next year,previous year papers etc at www.upsc.gov.in

    • Yes you are eligible for Indian Army Officer being at an age of 16 years.
    • For that, you are required to apply for the National defence academy (NDA) examination, Upsc organises this exam every year twice.
    • For joining Indian army, completion of class 12th in any of the stream from recognised board.
    • The age required for the NDA examination need to be in between 16.5 years to 19 years.
    • This age limit is as per joining date which is one year ahead of examination, so the age limit applies here is 15.5 years to 18 years.
    • Only male and unmarried student can apply for it.

    Re: Am i eligible for Indian Army Officer being at an age of 16 years?

    I am sorry to say that you are not eligible to join Indian Army with an age of 16 years.

    Because, the minimum age with which a candidate can join in Indian Army is with 16 1/2 years.

    For this, the candidate has to crack NDA Exam which is going to be conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) twice a year.

    Not only for Army,the candidates can also join other Defence services like
    -Navy
    -Air Force by cracking this Exam.

    But in order to be eligible for this Exam,
    -One should have completed 12th class with any of the stream from a recognized institute.
    -To join Navy and Air Force wings, one should have completed 12th class with Mathematics and Physics as the compulsory subjects.
    -Candidates who are pursuing final year of 12th class are also eligible to appear for this exam.

    As per age criteria, the required age limit that a candidate should be to appear for this exam is 16 1/2 years to 19 years.

    One should be an unmarried male candidate to appear for this Exam.

    You did not mention your highest level of academic qualification. If you possess the above mentioned eligibility criteria, then I suggest you to have good preparation for NDA Exam and crack it.

    For updated information on NDA Exam, you can visit
