    Sorry dear but you are not eligible for both National Defence Academy & Naval Academy Examination (NDA) and Combined Defence Services Examination (for IMA, NA & AFA). As eligibility criteria for these exams states that the applicant should be a male.
    But as you are doing a B.E. course so you have more bright chances in Engineering services exam and Civil services exam and you can apply for them.
    Good luck........

    and also for IMA girls are not allowed


    but I can give you advise that if you want to go in defence than you only can try after graduation in CDS (OTA) .




    The "Combined Defense Services" Examination or the CDS Exam is conducted twice a year by the UNION PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION for recruitment into the Indian Military Academy, Officers Training Academy, Naval Academy and Air Force Academy. The Notification for the examination is usually released in the months of October and June and the examination is conducted in February and September respectively.

    Female candidates are not eligible for the National Defence Academy (NDA) and Indian Military Academy (IMA) examination. Only Unmarried male candidates are eligible to apply the NDA and IMA entrance examination.

    So, if you are a female candidate then don't think about the NDA and IMA examination. I advise you to go for another entrance examination like CDS...etc.

    Both examination is conducted by the UPSC in every year for the selection of the talented unmarried male candidates. If you want to get any more information about the NDA and IMA examination then i advise you to visit the official website of the UPSC. :- http://www.upsc.gov.in

    Dear Friend,

    Sorry to say but you are not eligible for the NDA Examination because of the following reasons :

    * the Union public Service Commission has set a criteria that only male candidates who are under the age group of 16.5-19 years are eligible for the exam.

    So , due to this you cannot appear in NDA Examination.

    But if you want to join Indian Defence , then you can fulfill your dream through CDS Exam.

    This is the information i have to the best of my knowledge regarding your query. Hope the information will help you to the extent you want.

    Re: What is the Eligibility Criteria for a Female Candidate to join IMA and NDA?

    Hello,
    Sorry friend but female candidates are not eligible for any of these two Exams. Only unmarried male candidates are eligible for these two Exams.
    If you are so eager to join Defence you can apply for OTA (Officer Training Academy) through CDS Examination.

    The eligibility criteria for CDS Exam (OTA) are as follows:
    The candidate must be Indian.
    The age of the candidate should be in between 19-24 years.
    The candidate should be unmarried.
    The candidate must hold any degree in any discipline from any recognized university
    Final year degree students are also eligible

    As you asked that how to join NDA and IMA, first thing you need to take care before you apply for NDA examination is that girls cannot apply for NDA examination.
    NDA stands for national defence academy examination and this exam is conducted by union public sevice commission of india.
    this examination is conducted twice but unfortunately this is not for girls.
    AS tou have mentioned that you want to join IMA, so you can join for the same after the completion of the graduation, through CDS examination.
    you have not mentioned your trade so iam explaining the whole eligibility criteria.
    1) graduate in any discipline can apply for indian army and graduation with physics ,maths or engineering can apply for indian navy and air force as well.
    2) age limit fot every academy is different-
