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!
