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!


In nda what job is given at higherpost for army,navy,airforce

Sanjay Khandelwal 8th Dec, 2019
NDA is a training academy for defence forces. Cadets who get selected after NDA exam and SSB interview, a merit list is prepared for all three departments Army, Navy, Air force. The cadets gets training in the academy for 3 years. After that they are sent for 1 year training to concerned Academy for army in IMA, for Navy in INA, For Air force in AFA. After 1 year training in their concerned academy they get commissioned as officers. So total period is 3 yrs NDA and 1 year at concerned Academy. NDA do not recuit directly to any force, it gives training to the cadets and mould them into officers. Nothing like Higher post and all. 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.

Nisha 4th Dec, 2019


Aapko ek bat sabse pehle janni hogi ki kisi bhi ek kitab ya newspaper se kabhi sawal nhi aate.

The Hindu newspaper ki language aur vocabulary bahut achi mani jati hai jisse ki aapko taiyari me kafi madad milegi. Lekin ye kahna ki sare sawal wahin se ayenge ye galat hai. Aur ye bhi jaruri nhi ki aapko yahi newspaper padhna padega taiyari ke liye . Aap kisi bhi newspaper se apni taiyari ker sakte hai.

Ummed hai aapko kuch  madad hui hogi.

Hi Ronit,

If you want to get good marks in your UPSC and NDA exams it is very important for you to work on synonyms as well as antonyms. Many candidates prefer to look for synonyms and antonyms questions from previous year papers but it is not mandatory that those questions will land in your question paper. I am mentioning some good books that you can prefer for studying the questions of antonyms.

1. Antonyms, Synonyms and One Word Substitution by RAM SINGH YADAV

2. Synonyms and Antonyms Anglo by ROSHAN TOLANI

These are good books and have quality content for the preparation of competitive exams like UPSC, NDA, SSC CGL, etc.
