How to join Indian army after 12th standard in 2021.

Before I explain how you can join the Indian army after the 12th standard in 2021 or at the positions after the 12th, you must know on which ranks you can join the Indian army in 2021.

Note: If you have already read my article on How to join Indian army after 10th, then you can skip the introduction and start from here.

In the army, the Indian army ranks are classified into three categories:

1) Commissioned Officers

Commissioned Officers are the leaders of the army and hold command in units from platoon to corps and above. All Army officers join the army as cadets having no insignia at the time of their training. After completion of training, cadets will then be enlisted in the army at the rank of Lieutenant.

Officers are continuously put through different courses and being assessed on merit throughout their career, for promotions and appointments. For lieutenant colonel and colonel, time period in service is also considered for promotions and above colonel promotions are based on selection.

The lowest rank among the commissioned officers is the Lieutenant who wears a two five-pointed stars insignia on his/her shoulders.

2) Junior Commissioned officers(JCOs)

Junior Commissioned Officers is a military officer whose rank is lower than Lieutenant and higher than a Havildar. They are promoted from non-commissioned officers. The senior-most officer among Junior commissioned officers is Subedar-Major and below him, the hierarchy is in this manner. (Subedar Major > Subedar > Naib Subedar).

3) Other Ranks(ORs)

Other Ranks in the army includes Non-commissioned officers(NCOs) and Sepoy(Siphai/Jawan). NCOs are those officers that are promoted from jawans/sepoys or joined the army at the rank of Havildar which is the senior-most rank among the NCOs and below him, the hierarchy is in this manner. (Havildar > Naik > Lance Naik > Sepoy).

How to Join the Indian Army?

You can join the Indian army in Four ways. These are after:

  • 8th standard.
  • 10th standard.
  • 12th standard
  • Graduation

First, I will mention two types of commissions in the Indian army in which officers join. Let’s have a look.

Types of Commissions

Entry is done in the Indian army in two types of commissions:

1) Permanent Commission

A Permanent Commission allows you to have a career till you retire. It is granted for the candidates that join the army through the entries mentioned below:

  • NDA, Pune – 10+2 pass or 12th pass or its equivalent (Through UPSC)
  • IMA, Dehradun – After clearing either Central Defense Service Exam (UPSC),  or by joining through 10+2 Technical Entry Scheme(TES), Technical Graduate Course, AEC (Men) and by University Entry Scheme.

2) Short Service Commission

A Short Service Commission allows you to join the Indian army after the 12th or above as a commissioned officer for 10 or 14 years. After the period of 10 year ends, you have 3 options:

(I) Opt/elect for the Permanent Commission.

(II) Opt-out(Retirement) from the service.

(III) Opt for 4 years of extension. It is must be noted , you can resign anytime during the period of 4 years extension.

After clearing SSC, you will be given training at Officers Training Academy (OTA), Chennai. You can join the army through the entries mentioned below:

  • SSC Non-Technical (Men & Women)
  • SSC Technical (Men & Women)
  • Short Service Commission (NCC) Men & Women

How to Join Indian Army after 8th & 10th standard?

This article is only about how to join the army after the 12th standard as far as joining the army after 8th and 10th and graduation is concerned, I have created separate articles for them.  You can check them below:

How to join the Indian Army after the 10th standard in 2021, you can check it here by clicking on the link:  link (This articles covers for 8th and 10th pass both)

In brief, to join the Indian Army after the 8th standard, you can apply for the posts of Soldier Tradesman where:

  • Minimum Age – 17.5 -23 years (No relaxation whatsoever)
  • Educational Qualification – Just 8th pass from a recognized board.

To join the Indian army after the 10th standard, one can only go through the lowest rank in the army as a sepoy(siphai) and from there, sepoys are promoted, on the basis of merit, performance, attitude, and their time of service in the army.

Now, don’t be disheartened because almost 75-80% of sepoys can reach the rank of Havildars and the rest to Naib Subedars. As far as, joining the army as a sepoy is concerned after the 10th standard, this can be done through the Indian army rally at the posts of :

  • Soldier Tradesman
  • Soldier GD/Tradesman (Territorial Army)
