One of the most prestigious and respectful paths to choose is a career in the Defense Forces. The Indian Armed Forces are the military forces of India, which consist of four professional uniformed services; Indian Air Force, the Indian Army, Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard. There are several paramilitary organizations and various inter-service institutions also aid the Indian Armed forces. The Ministry of the defense is responsible for the management of the Armed Forces in India. To ensure that appropriate candidates are chosen, a comprehensive selection process is adopted by the armed forces through the Service Selection Board (SSB) Interview. The selection procedure involves three phases: Objective test, Interview and medical examination. Candidates applying for the Air force and Navy must have Physics and Maths in the +2 level exams. Students can apply after class 12 (NDA) or after graduation (CDS) for defense services. Candidates finally selected by SSB are riveted by the Armed Forces. Individuals are exposed to various forms of training and promotions at different levels.
