Is EWS is valid for NDA at all ?

Abinash Panigrahi 10th Dec, 2019

Atharva ;

No, there is no such reservation in NDA. There never was any caste based reservation in NDA or any defense service exams. Now that the government has added 10% reservation for EWS category students ; that will not be applicable in case of NDA exam. Officially by UPSC it was cited as "10% reservation, no impact on armed forces".

Now speaking of reservation, only students whose parents are/were in the field of defense. Only for them there's is a specific reservation in NDA.

All the best!

The cadets get commissioned after 4 years, they will get promotion as per the procedures and also they have to undergo various steps for promotion. You no higher post as such, till your retirement which post you can achieve is highest. Seniority is also a criteria.
