Anupam Kumar Student Expert 11th Oct, 2019

Hey there

For NDA the sight criteria is that the candidate should not be having myopia more than -3.5 and hypermetropia more than +3.5. as in your case you have -3.5 so you'll not be eligible with this eye sight.

Check detailed eligibility for NDA


Good luck
