Some candidates those who have applied for Indian Air Force Entries might get confuse between AFSB and SSB Interview procedure, though there is not much difference in the whole process, but there are certain things one must know about AFSB and SSB Interview process. AFSB stands for Air Force Selection Board, the main function of AFSB is to conduct interviews for the candidates and recommend potential candidates to become officers in Indian Air Force. There are total four AFSBs all over India which are, 1 AFSB Dehradun, 2 AFSB Mysore, 3 AFSB Gandhinagar and 4 AFSB Varanasi. One can attend AFSB interviews through CDSE and AFCAT entry. Sometimes Indian Air Force also conducts FTS [Fast Track Selection], which is another way to get into Indian Air Force.
