    Dear..

    You can not join Indian air force by getting recruited from any of the exam of UPSC as UPSC is conducting two main exam for recruiting which are National defence academy and Combined defence services, And for both of the exam you are over age that means you have crossed the limit of age decided by the UPSC. It is really a thing to dishearten you but it is true.

    But, You have not mentioned your educational qualification there are few more exams that can help you in getting into the Indian air force at this age. I have given a detail about both the exams so have a look :-

    1. You can still go for Air force Technical branch as an engineer as the age limit is 18-28 but the candidate must be engineer to go for this branch.
    2. You can also go for Air force ground staff foe which the age limit is 18-27 years but for this you need a graduation degree with more than 60% marks.

    Hope it will help you.

    Cheers...!!!

    Sorry to say

    you are not joining the IAF through upsc.

    According to your age you are not eligible for the exam.

    Under CDS exam you can enter the IAF.

    The qualification is required for the IAF:-

    For the Indian air force graduation in science stream form the recognized university.

    The age limit for the exam:-

    Indian air force age limit: 19 to 23 years

    You have completed the 23 years old, now you are not eligible for the exam.

    Now you can give the civil service exam which is also taken by the upsc in every year.

    The qualification is required graduation in any stream from the approved university.

    The age limit is the 21 to 30 years.

    Best of luck for the exam

    To join the IAF wing of the Defence Forces of India UPSC conducts following exams :

    1.NDA & NA Exam-Age limit is 16.5yrs-19yrs

    2.CDS Exam-Age Limit is 19-23yrs

    There is no relaxation of age limits for any category.

    Since you do not meet the elgibility criteria of
    Age limit for both these exams

    you cannot apply and so you can not join the IAF.

    SORRY ! you cannot join the IAF at the age of 27yrs through UPSC exams.
