    Hi dear...

    Being a commerce Graduate you cannot Join Indian Navy through CDS.
    CDS exam is conducted by UPSC twice a year.
    Yes, you can write CDS exam but to join Indian Army only but not Indian Navy.
    To join Indian Navy you need to have Science stream in your Graduation with the age limit of 19-22 years and you should Single Male citizen

    Thank you..

    You are definitely eligible to appear for the exam

    And the minimum qualification must be GRADUATION


    And the Graduation may be of any stream

    You must have a minimum of 19 years

    So as you are from the commerce filed..

    It is considered as a Graduation


    GOOD LUCK

    No you can not join Indian Navy through CDS from commerce background.You can apply for SSC exam conducted by Indian Navy where you can apply for Navy but that will be for logistics etc departments.Through CDS,Navy generally recryuits candidates for Technical posts which comprises of B.tech candidates.So you have to check the website of Indian Navy for their direct recruitment of commerce graduates but not through CDS.You can check the website of Navy at nausena-bharti.nic.in

    Hi dear

    Sorry!! through CDS Exam you can not join Indian Navy.

    Your academic qualification does not satisfy Minimum Eligibility criteria of CDS Naval Academy.

    However you can still serve the nation by joining Defence through CDS IMA and OTA.

    The detailed eligibility criteria for the Exam is:

    (i) For IMA and OTA : Degree of a recognised University or equivalent.
    (ii) For Naval Academy : Degree in Engineering
    (iii) For Air Force Academy: Degree of a recognised University (with Physics and Mathematics at 10+2 level) or Bachelor of Engineering

    Age limits:

    For IMA 19 - 24 years
    For NA 19 - 22 years
    For AFA 19 - 23 year
    For OTA 19 - 25 years

    So you still have a chance through CDS Indian Military Academy.

    Good luck...
