    Re: Is there any Age relaxation in CDS exam? Provide full Information regarding Age Relaxation in CDS exam?

    You are over age for CDS exam.Following are the age limits of CDS modules:
    IMA = 19-24years
    OTA= 19-25 years
    INA= 19-22years
    AFA= 19-23 years

    There is NO Relaxation in any standard regarding age,cut off,physical criteria and other factors based on caste or category. Do no expect any age relaxation for any defence exams as NDA,CDS,SSC Technical,AFCAT etc etc all have very strict standards and there is no caste-ism and relaxation or reservation in Defence services.

    No Friend,

    19-22 years for INA

    19-24 years for IMA
    19-25 years for OTA.
