NDA stands for ( National Defence Academy ) it is the Premier Joint Training Institution and Center for Indian Army Force. And UPSC conducts the NDA examination.

 In written exam and marking the answer, the candidates must use only black ball pen. Don’t use with any other colour pen. Candidates should now that there will be a negative marketing in the objective type question paper.

A candidate recommended by the Services Selection Board will undergo a medical examination by a Board of Service Medical Officers. Applicants will be informed of the time table and or examination place or candidates should note that no request for change of centre. In the online application form, the candidate should carefully choose the centre for the examination.
