Sir, I have elbow fracture in left hand.can it create a problem in nda medical?

Aman Raj Student Expert 20th Oct, 2019

Hello Atul

Old fractures, already healed are not case of rejection in Medical.

If fracture just before Medical, you will not be able to perform GTO tasks, so you can not expect much.

But still you will be given a duration of 30 days for your fracture to get healed.
