      Final year student eligible but they must have source of income with valid proof. TA is not a career option,its a voluntary organisation.Its better that you prepare for CDS or other exams.Subscribe Employement News to get to these openings.

    If , i dont get the Service certificate by company, if they dont allow me, Then is there any other way to apply for TA? Please give suggestion

    • Madan

      There is thorough scrutiny of documentation by defence department.If your exisiting company does not provide you service certitificate then its better to remain in the company as the TA is not a source of Income .Alternatively you can show yourself as self earning (HUF) by producing affidavit of natary public.
