It is obvious thing that firstly, we are attract from job security and high paid income, and the individual who want to join armed force for this is automatically serve our motherland, it is superfulous to say that i join armed force for SERVE OUR NATION and nothing else required.

hello sir,
Im currently studying in the 11th std. I want to join the IAF through the NDA. I was targetting the august 2013 exam because by that i can join nda right after my 12th std. Also, i wanted to apply for the april 2013 exam just to get a feel of the exam before writing it seriously. But the problem is april 2013 and august 2013 are so close and the results of the april exam will not be published by august. My question is sir, can i apply for two consecutive exams???? will it create any problem??? please help..

Basically it’s the spirit of serving our nation & on secondary it comes job & good income as far as our second duty is concerned for our family.

Thanking you Sir,

I just want to say one thing to you. Officially it might be that you have served our nation till your retirement but in reality, you are actually still serving for nation. You have motivated & made many people to achieve the success in defence carrer so as they too can serve for nation.

Thanks for keeping/maintaining this great patriotic feeling inside we people.

Jai Hind !

This is a good question for the aspirants to get feel and realise why they want to join and do work in that way.
I want to join air force because it is a respectable service and second thing is that there will be lot of adventures and i love adventures.
ialso ask a question to you that i am btech 2nd year student and want to join air force. you will understood that i am at zero and i don’t have facilities to join any coaching because of my locality. please tell me how will i start my prepration for SSB and CDS.

sir can u say any books for preparation of CDS and for cracking SSB interview

Sir, As per Security of job and good income is concerned, No job is secure, Also It is not the easier entry for this SERVICE, And if you want to join Army then SERVING automatically becomes part of your Duty…There are other jobs also you can serve our country..So need not to join Armed force if u want to serve your country….But respect u can only get if u are in defense forces…
Lets see an example of Policeman His job is secure and also gets good income, Serving our country also..But why people abuses then always in our real life , but when a defense force person we see, we feel proud….

So…My view is to get respect from where we live…..Remember money can buy salute but not heart respect……

i am a student of 3rd year 5th sem in computer engineering stream

i want to join only and only indian navy…

i gave the preliminary interview of UES-23 for indian navy and am waiting for the results to be disclosed….
i have also given a thought for taking CDS exam because UES gives a job in SSC and i want a permanent commision..
so sir i have a few questions which have been a constant concern

1. What rank will i get in Navy once i am selectd as a commisioned officer through UES or CDS ?

2. As i will be in 4th year by the time CDS II 2013 exam will be held i.e. in sept 2013 am i eligible to fill the form because forms will be out in around May i think…but by that time my result of 6th sem would not have been disclosed…sowhat should i do..?

3. Furthermore i need to ask you the books i need to use for the SSB of UES if i get selected in preliminary and how many books i need to study thoroughly to ensure clearing the written of CDS and which are they and also the CDS SSB..??

4. What should i do for the constant nagging which i feel inside me,to get in thearmed forces as soon as possible and to clear the selection procedure at the first time;because that,for now,is really not letting me give my 100% in engineering,as this one thought that- You are not doing anything for getting in the armed forces specially in the navy doesnt let me do anything else?

Hoping to hear from you very soon

Jai Hind Sir.
I have a query regarding NDA II 2012 that I have qualified the written examination for NDA 1st pref Army as the result published on 28.12.2012. So now on 09 Jan two pdf files are uploaded on Indian Navy and Army website where the venue and date of Ssb Interview is mentioned for some 600 and 300 candidates respectively. But my name is absent there and the no. of candidates qualifying written exam is around 9,000. Then I am confused whether will I get a call up letter or will subsequent pdf files will uploaded on some website of Indian armed forces?? Please help and the pdf files are uploaded on nausena-bharti and on joinindianarmy.nic.in .
