      As of now only unmarried male candidates are eligible for NDA exam 2022. Till now there are discussions in the Supreme Court for women's entry in NDA but though to implement immediate effect as the current stranderd of training infrastructure is meant for young male cadets. So, the academy has to create a suitable infrastructure for women cadets and they may be less in quantity and have a different squadron, but still it is uncertain. So, you can join the Defence services through OTA,AFA and INA. And all the best for your future aim. I am a recent cadets of Sainik School Goalpara of class IX the standerd.
