Why To Join Indian Army? Perks Of Army Life

If you are thinking to join Indian army, then you probably have your own reasons to do so. Some join because the facilities provided in Indian army are good, while some join it because of the salary reasons, and then there are some who join the army because they are passionate about it and want to serve their country through it. Now, you should know how to join indian army? if you are passionate about it or want to join indian army because of some facilities.

Whatever be the reason, the main thing is that you want to join and that’s it. Below are some of the advantages that army offers to its soldiers. Maybe this will help you to know army better.

So here are the advantages of joining Indian army:-

1. Job Security

Indian Army job security

Name one private sector job that gives you the job security for the lifetime (until you retire), no wonder your mind will go blank as there is no such job in private that offers the job security(Unless you are an employee of GOOGLE). One day you are enjoying great success in the private sector and the other day you are struggling to save your job, such is the tendency of private sectors jobs.

But if you are an army men, then job security is something that you will never have to worry about. Though you have to retire at some point, but till then you will be assured job security.

I think this factor is enough to make you believe in joining the Indian army, but still let’s have a look on the other factors too.

2. After Retirement Benefits

Indian Army after retirement

This is one of the main factors why the army is considered as the best career choice. First of all, there is no such thing as post-retirement in the private sector, you will totally be dependent on your savings and other assets if you decide to finally call it a day.

There is a saying that an old person is just like a baby because he/she sleeps like a baby, they need proper care and attention like babies do, and most of all they are as weak as babies and that is why people retire so that they don’t have to work anymore. If you do not have a source of income in old age then you have no other options but to work.

Things are much better for ex-army personnel, they get to enjoy all the facilities like army canteen, army hospitals, and many other things. These facilities are so beneficial especially at this time where things get costlier every other day.

The main advantage that an army man enjoys after retirement is the pension, you would be amazed to know that an ex-army man gets around 50% of the total salary he retired on i.e if your salary at the time of retirement was Rs. 30,000 then after retirement you will get pension somewhat around 12000 to 15000. Isn’t this great!

3. Salary Benefits

Indian Army good salary

Though many things have changed in the Indian army within last 2 decades, but the salary of army personnel has evolved significantly after 6th pay commission.

Know the Indian army rank wise salary.

The GD recruit can get a salary ranging between 15000 to 45000 approximately. Now don’t be confused as these figures may look normal to you but let me tell you that an army person gets around 60 extra benefits and that surely is way more than a person can earn in any private sector.

4. Scope Of Higher Studies

indian army further education

You can pursue your academic studies even after joining Indian army. You can always apply for the higher studies if you are a soldier and wish to be promoted to officers rank. And for officers who are in the technical department and want to go for post-graduation then you can do so, as reputed IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) colleges has reserved seats for such officers.

So you see if you really feel like studying more while you are working, then Indian army is the best option for you.

5. Fit And Fine Forever

fit forever

They say “no army man is fat” and this is so true. Army is so much about physical strength, and an army person is always in proper shape as they spend so much time doing physical activities. So there is no chance of getting out of shape, you will be fit and fine forever if you are in the army.

6. Unmatched Reputation

respect in indian army

Imagine yourself introducing to other after you become an army man, people just don’t get enough when it comes to praising army men. You will be treated with respect wherever you go, you may feel like you are just serving your country or doing your duty just like others, but people will always think of you has a national hero.

just one instance from your action packed professions and there you go! you will have fans in no time and this is what we call unmatched reputation.

Facilities In Indian Army

Facilities in Indian army are just mind blowing, everything from accommodation to medical facilities your family will enjoy it all and that too free of cost. Here is a short description about some of the facilities.

#Accommodation Facilities

Indian army home facilities

What are the basic things that you will look for when searching for a locality to reside? clean environment, good neighborhood, security etc. Army cantonment areas provide all that is required to make living better.

Clean environment:- army is all about discipline and rules, and that is why they keep each and every place clean where they live. I don’t know if you have ever visited a cantonment area, but it’s totally awesome, roads are plain and clean, lush green vegetation and you won’t find even a single untidy corner.

Good neighborhood:- a decent and good neighborhood can make life so easy and joyful, and since in cantonment areas only army personnel families resides, therefore, it is obvious that neighborhood will always be decent, and if not then you can complain it to the officials.

Great Quarters:- the quarters that are allotted to the families of army personnel are equipped with all types of modern facilities, and if there is any problem, then you can report it and the problem is fixed free of cost. E.g let’s suppose that you are having trouble with your switchboard then all you have to do is report it, and they will send someone to fix it without charging you anything.

Separate places for sports and extracurricular activities:- open grounds, clubhouses, and other such places are specially maintained for the families living in the cantonment area.

Security:- the cantonment board is surrounded by walls and fencing so that no unsocial element could enter in it. Security guards are always on their toes for any kind of ill situations.

#Medical Facilities

Indian army medical facilities

According to a survey done in 2014, people are spending more money on medications and treatments than ever before. Having free medical facilities provides an extra benefit of saving money.

Infrastructure:- unlike other government hospitals, army hospitals have the high standard of infrastructure and facilities. Health care centers should be clean and hygienic, and that is exactly what army do, each and every corner of the military hospitals is totally clean and health friendly.

Latest medical technologies:- if you thought everything that is free lacks quality, then you should visit a military hospital. They are equipped with the latest medical technology and if in any case they are unable to treat anyone due to lack of equipments, then the patients are referred to a better private hospital and patient gets the concession for that treatment, complete fair and square.

Qualified doctors:- the doctors working in military hospitals are well qualified and skilled as they go through the number of exams and test to reach there.

Ambulance:- ambulance is just a call away if needed. The coolest thing  is that you get all this without investing a paisa.

#Canteen Facility

Indian Army canteen

Inflation is the ultimate cause of all financial crises for every family. The canteen facility of the army is a canopy to all army families.

Economical price:- the stuff you buy from the army canteen is way less costly, which ultimately leads to better affordability. i.e people can invest more in luxuries items then just sticking to basic needs.

Availability:- almost everything is available in army canteens, ranging from normal grocery items to high-class luxuries items like Vehicles, Army canteen has it all.

Quality guaranteed:- not a single item you buy from army canteen lacks quality as only branded items are sold in them.

#Educational Facilities

Indian army school

Education is the important part of society, and army understand it well, that is why it provides special facilities to the students who are kids of army personnel.

Army Schools:- the large network of army schools all around the country is built, so that the kids of army men could get the best of education.

Better facilities:- all the army schools and KV (Kendriya Vidyalayas) offers way better facilities to students than any normal private and convent school, with economical fee structure.

Opportunity in sports:- regular sport events and trips are organized by army schools and KV’s which are funded by the government, so if a kid is good in sports then a KV/army school will open a world of opportunity for him/her.

Scholarship for students:- for the students who are bright in studies, to them army offers the scholarship.

So, these are some of the many reasons why you should join Indian army, and I’m sure you have made your mind by now.

Life In Indian Army – Normal Day Schedule

Life is totally happening in the Indian army, one thing that army assures you is that you will never get bored. Each and every day is action packed, this is how the day goes in fauj.

Morning Schedule

The day for every army man starts from the dawn time of 5 Am when they gather for the daily PT (physical training) for at least 45 minutes.

The jawans join the PT only after properly shaving and doing other necessary activities, because they are inspected by higher officials and if found any irregularity then they are punished for it, even the clothes are inspected closely.

No one is exempted from PT, that means every army personnel has to go for the PT until he/she has been permitted for some valid reason not to attend PT.

PT is kind of necessary for everyone and every day in the army, but those areas where it is not possible to do PT (like high altitude locations) are exempted from it.

On many days, the PT can be converted into BPET (Battle Physical Efficiency Test) pared. In this pared soldiers are tested to their limits as they have to run non-stop for 5 km with full battle gear that includes weapon, and they have to complete this drill within 28 minutes or they will be considered as fail and will be punished accordingly.

After running, a 60 Meters sprint is the next drill, after that a 9 feet ditch and traversing a rope which will be something around 5 meters in both ways i.e Horizontally and vertically. And soldiers has to do all these drills carrying all their combat gears with them.

Of course, there is no need of explaining why Physical workout is important. Besides physical benefits, early morning workout can have other advantages too, like a healthy brain, good sleeping habits as to wake up early one has to go to bed early.

It is often said that army men are fond of having liquors, therefore, morning parade restricts them from consuming limitless alcohol because if they do, then it will be hard to wake up early and even harder to go for PT.

After PT, soldiers are given a break to freshen up and have a healthy breakfast, those who do not have their families with them have the facility to join the army mess (often known as ‘langar’). Since the day can be long for those who has to perform extreme physical tasks, therefore, the army mess offers a diet which fulfill all needs of a soldier.

At least, that is what they say, but I know some army men who are not very fond of food that is available in mess.

After having their morning breakfast soldiers and officer go for the duties which they are assigned. Each and everyone is assigned with duties according to their trades. Mostly officer ranked personals handles the administrative duties, while the lower ranked people like soldier GD deals more in physical tasks, as they are the one who will be the front line standing when it comes to combats, so it is important for them to be well trained.

The hours after the breakfast are considered as the working hours and every drill or other tasks the army people do in this time is considered as their duty.

Indian Army Afternoon Schedule

Then comes the lunch break and this is quite a long break. It starts from 12:30 Pm and last till 2:30 Pm, in this free time soldiers can do whatever they like, most prefer to take good nap but some like to do other activities.

After the break, all the soldiers gather for the afternoon games and again it is compulsory to play a game. The game can be the choice of the soldier.

In army, sports is a great factor, if you are good in some sport then the army will definitely help you to grow better in that sport and you can even go for national and international games if you are really talented. Indian army always supports and value its sports person, therefore, if you qualify for national or international games then not only you will make name and fortune in the game, but you also get promoted to higher rank in the army.

Live examples of success stories of army sportsmen like Milkha Singh, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore etc. explains everything about the opportunity that a sportsman has in the army.

Coming back to the schedule, after the sports time, soldiers who have to work on night shift are detailed and rest of the soldiers are now free to spend the rest of the day according to them.

So this is the normal routine of an Indian army man (mostly for a General duty soldier).

Life Of Army Men – Tradewise

Life of officers in the Indian army:-

Officers just like other army soldiers have to go for morning PT(Physical Training). We can say that PT is the only time of the day when officers get to sweat and stretch out their muscles for exercises. Since they come after passing through tough written exams, and the acid test of SSB, therefore, they are considered fit for mind works and hence are generally given the administrative work, and they spend most of their time in the office doing paperwork.

Officers enjoy better facilities than any other department of the army. They are given better accommodation and other facilities and of course, the pay scale for officers is significantly high.

Life of GD soldier in the army:

GD soldiers also start their day with morning PT, and as the day proceed so do their training. Soldiers GD mostly deals in Physical activities like training drills, Weapons training, firing etc. basically all exercises that are related to combat.

Life of Technical Soldier in the army:

Life for technical soldier is easier than soldier GD, as their work deals in technical support and therefore, does not need much of physical efficiency. A soldier with technical trade has to do physical work at the time of morning PT and afternoon games.

Life of soldier clerk/SKT in the army:

Again soldier clerk proceeds to his duty after morning PT. The work of soldier clerk involves mostly paperwork like keeping records etc. therefore, he spend most of his time in office and not in the field.

Life of a nursing assistant:

A nursing assistant soldier deals with the medical support and, therefore, they spend most of their time in military hospitals.

Life for Soldier tradesman:

Soldier tradesmen are the functional unit of the army as they spend their day with fixing or maintaining the things like Barbers, Cooks, Sweepers, Electricians, etc. Their day is quit easy and simple.

Why Not To Join Indian Army? Woes Of Working In The Indian Army

Let’s see the other side of the coin. I have mentioned enough advantages to attract you to the Indian army, but here are some of the disadvantages that may force you to think other way round about joining Indian army.

Restrictions that will haunt you:-

The army is all about discipline and restriction, it literally takes away the spirit of living life on your own terms. You will be told to do everything with discipline, this is not a bad thing but according to various studies, strict discipline system can ruin the creative vision of a person.

You must have heard the term “boss is always right“, and who will know this thing better than army men. You have to follow exactly what the senior orders you to follow and that too with no questions asked.

So basically, if you do not adapt to these conditions then all the restrictions will indeed haunt you.

Less than 15 years and you are on your own:-

If you somehow left army before 15 years then you will be kept from getting the pension, and this is quite bad. There can be circumstances where you may have to leave your job well before 15 years, then you are just on your own. And 15 years is a long time anyway.

Limited options of promotions:-

If you join the army as soldier GD, then chances of reaching to the high posts are limited, as the highest post you can attain is SM (subedar major). This can be really demoralizing for those who have already joined.

Limited promotions mean limited opportunities of salary hikes, which again is a demoralizing factor. Though candidates can apply for higher education and then apply for papers in order to get officer ranks (candidates who had PCM in 12th can apply without graduation), but it is very hard to work and study at the same time.

Long distance relationship:-

This may be quite frustrating, but at some point, you will have to go far from your family. This is one bitter truth of army that you will have to spend most of your time away from your family.

Taking your family with you at different parts of the country will be fun, but as soon as your kids start going to school, then you will realize that it is disturbing their studies, and eventually you will end up staying away from them.

And not to mention that you will not have a house of your own until you decide to set your family at one particular place or you get retired. And money to buy or build a house, of course, will always be an issue.

Changing climate:-

traveling to different parts of the country will be a part of your job, but weather conditions and climate of the different part of the country will be different. At some places, the temperature will fall below 0, and at some places it can go as high as 35 to 40 degrees, at some places it will be totally wet and at some it will be totally dry. In short you will have to face extreme climatic conditions, and not everyone can adapt all situation.

Some people may even develop allergies or some kind of other diseases. And even if you learn to adapt to the situation, still it will be hard initially.

Jack of everything master of none:-

this is a philosophy that most would not like to follow, but this is exactly what they do in Indian army. According to this philosophy a person can know many trades but there is no trade in which he/she is excellent, and this is what happens in the army.

You should know multiple things but you can not follow one particular thing and master it, which is quite disappointing.


So, above were some disadvantages of joining the army, but don’t be moved by them, because no matter what, army is always a safe and good choice when it comes to carrier. So feel the passion and go for it.

      As, you have mentioned that you are in 9th class so, at present you are not eligible to join Indian army. The minimum age criteria for Indian army is 17 and half years.

    1. Prof. Divyanshi Sharma

      Hi Saiteja.
      The physical standards like height, chest and weight vary from region to region. Before you apply for any post make sure you fulfill all the eligibility criteria. As, you have mentioned you are doing B.Tech so, the best way for you to join Indian army is through CDS exam. This exam is conducted by UPSC twice a year for graduate students who aspires to join Indian army as officers. Other then this you can also apply for UES (University Entry Scheme) exam which is conducted by Indian army for unmarried Male B.E/ B.Tech Graduates for Grant of Permanent Commission in the Indian Army.

Men and women both can apply for CDSE and the best part is about CDSE is that there is no percentage bar for it.

  38. Virendrasinh Chavda

    Sir Only 12 pass 33% kya ham Clark me Form bhar sakte he

    1. Hey Virendrasinh, sorry to say but you are bot eligible to apply for soldier clerk as the minimum percentage required for soldier clerk is 50%.

  39. Hello Sir, how can I join Indian army after completing b.com. please suggest me next steps .what should I do and what should be my daily routine preparing and workout.please suggest me sir.

    1. Hey Jugdish, since you have completed your graduation, therefore, i will suggest you to apply for officer ranks via exams like CDS. But, you will need to put lot’s of efforts and hard work to crack CDS or other high end exams. If you want to go for OR ranks like soldier GD, clerk, technical etc. then checkout the article “how to prepare for army” you will get lots of tips there.

  40. Hello Sir , I’m Aditya and I’m a national level hockey player and I’m studying in 10th and I always wanted to join Indian army. So I just wanted to ask what should I do after 10th and what percentage are required in 10th and 12th std to join the army.

    1. Hey Aditya, great to know that you have such spirit for army. You are already on the right path, just keep going. I would recommend you to apply for NDA exams, as it is the best and shortest way to join Indian army as officer. Since, you are a sports person, therefore it is a plus point for you. If you have certificate to support you sporting background, then it will be great for you.

      I suppose you are still under age to apply for army, as the minimum age to apply is 17½. So, till you get to the age, keep preparing. Though there is no percentage criteria for NDA, but try to get at least 70.

  41. Sir my aim to become officer in indian but i am poor with financial . I have passed 10+2 by PCM stream with 96% my age 18 years .So, which way is easy for me to become officer inarmy & to solve problem of financial
    Of my family . Through joining Soldier technical department after cracking ACC entrance , through NDA , Through 10+2 TES . Please out of three tell one way to me become officer in army & solve financial problem of my family which one is easy to me.

    1. Hey Harmal, first of all ACC is only for the already serving soldier in army, so you can count it out of your list. Now for NDA and TES, they both have their advantages and disadvantages. If you get recruited through NDA, then you will have to do only 3 years of training, but if you choose TES then you will have to go for 4 years of training.

      But, TES increases your chances of getting selected as you will be selected on the base of you percentage in class 12th, therefore you do not have to give the written exam and will directly go for the SSB.

      In my views you should go for TES, because once you get the job, then your financial condition will improve for sure, one year late but they will.

  42. Hello sir! I am very keen to join INDIAN ARMY. But can I join Army if I am unable to study in COLLEGE?

    1. Yes Siddarth, of course you can join Indian army without going to college. There are various trades that you can apply for.

  43. jai hind sir mai army join karna chahta hu but sir mere dhono shoulder par strichmark ke nishan ha uska koi problem to nahi hoga medical mai.

    1. No Samit, stretch marks are natural and almost everyone have them. So, no need to worry, you won’t find any trouble.

  44. i am mechanical engg. student, after joining army at Aps centre bangalore…are there any possibilities to get higher rank regarding my degree..!! the payscale also same ..!??

    1. Hey Karthik, you can apply for the ACC if you want to get to officer ranks. But, to be eligible to apply for ACC, you need to have 2 years of service.

  45. Sir if i will join Soldier technical department in indian army and after joining this post it possible to become a officer in indian army if yes then how should be possible & what to do after 12 standard .

    1. Hey Harmal, since you are already in technical department, then it’s obvious that you are 10+2 pass. Now, you need to have minimum 2 years of service to be eligible to apply for ACC. If you satisfy this criteria then you can apply for ACC.

  46. Hello sir!
    I wear specs of no -4.0 and -4.5

    1. Hey Shikha, as per army rules a candidate need to have a 6/6 vision in each eye.

  47. Sir, if we died in army then will the health benefits be given to our parents.

  48. Sir, please tell me about the promotion in SKT/Clerk. And for recruitment in SKT/clerk, how much running is required 600m or 800m?

    1. Prof. Rajeev Mehra

      Hey Gagandeep, the promotion for clerk is same as other trades i.e you get promotion from time to time until you reach the final post which is SM (subedar major), and your salary will increase likewise.

    1. Prof. Rajeev Mehra

      Hello Harnoordeep, the maths that is asked in NDA is considered quite tough, but if you give maximum 3 months with proper attention, then you can easily crack the nda exam.

  52. Sir, i am ready to join Indian army. Don’t mix between my personality and my attitude, because my personality is me and my attitude depends on Indian army. Jay hind1 jay bharat! jay jawan!

  53. Prakash kodalkar

    Sir, mai NDA exam nahi de sakta, kyoki my DOB 2 Oct 1997 hai.

    1. Prof. Rajeev Mehra

      Hello Prakash, as per my calculation you are still eligible to apply for NDA exam as the age limit is 19½ years.

  54. Sir can a captain in army give civil service exam. Will he be relieved from army if passed civil service exam.

    1. Prof. Rajeev Mehra

      Hello Aditya, if you joined as permanent commissioned, then you can not leave until you are 51 years of age. Though, if you were recruited on short service commission, then you can leave after a tenure.
