National Defence Academy is a prestigious academy where cadets are trained to join Indian armed forces, i.e. Indian army, navy and air force.
Every year Union Public Service Commission(UPSC) conducts NDA examination for admission to the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force wings of the NDA. This year, NDA 1 2018 was conducted on 22nd April 2018. It was attended by lakhs of aspirants around India. In NDA, it was the 141st Course, and the 103rd in Indian Naval Academy Course (INAC).
We get a lot of questions from NDA aspirants about when will be the results of NDA 1 2018 declared and also about SSB interview dates.
Firstly, the candidates are required to report for SSB interview on the date as told to them in the call-up letter for interview. If you are not able to attend SSB on the given date, then you can request for postponing interview but it will only be considered in exceptional circumstances and that too if it is administratively convenient for which Army Headquarters will be the sole deciding authority. Such requests should be addressed to the Administrative Officer of the Selection Centre from where the call letter for the interview has been received. No action will be taken on letters received by Army/Navy/Air HQs.
