    Well as per the SSB interview procedure every things comes at a same time like whether you have been applied for the IMA or OTA SSB will be the same for each candidate and the date will be the same for that so you cannot apply for the other preferance other than the opted one.
    So either you can apply for the OTA or you can apply for the IMA because both you cannot apply.
    There will be no seperate procedure for the same as all the candidates selected whether in OTA or IMA will have to qualify the SSB interview and that is on the same day.
    Well you can see the eligibility criteria for the same as follows-
