  1. If there is really a shortage of vacancy of personnel in Armed Forces then why the government is raising the cutoff for cds and other defence exam. If government really want officer and other rank personnel in Armed forces then it must reduces the cutoff for the exam and train youth like me (I have been trying to clear the cds and other defence exam to join the armed forces) in different academy to join the armed. Please make the exam easier if government really want officer in Armed forces because potential candidates are not able to join the academy because of high cutoff.
