At present only male candidates can join the National Defence Academy after 12th for the Indian army, air force and Indian navy after writing the CDS exam which is conducted by UPSC two times every year. Women can not join the National Defence Academy yet and they can only apply for the Army, Navy, and Airforce after graduation. Opening up the gates of NDA would be a bold move by the government and it will be interesting to see how soon this will come into reality.

The Indian Armed Forces are completing the process to introduce permanent commissioning for women in its three services — the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force. Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre said Thursday that moves are underway to allow the entry of women into combat roles and a proposal is being actively considered to allow admission of girls at the National Defence Academy (NDA).
