    Yes you can join IAF after doing MCA...

    For getting into IAF you have to sit for Combined Defense Service or CDS exam..

    After you clear the theory paper you have to go through some medical fitness test..

    You will have to apply through entrance exam named as AFCAT(Air Force Common Admission Test),you must have minimum 60% to apply for AFCAT.
    Now it is important that you understand about the age issue.

    As a post graduate your age limit is 20 to 25 years for ground duty branch(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).

    As after you apply,it takes nearly 1 year time to complete all the process of selection.Hence it is advisable that you apply only when you have 1 year less.

    Now you said you will be 24 years by the time you finish MCA,that is ok because if you apply at that time then at the time of starting of the course,your age will be 25 years which is in the criteria,but you will get rejected if your age becomes 25 years 1 day.

    Hence it is advisable that you apply when you are in the final year of MCA,as final year students are also eligible for applying.

    Also a old notification of AFCAT is uploaded for your reference.
