The selection process followed by Indian Army TGC/AEC has been detailed below:-
1. SHORTLISTING CANDIDATES :- Integrated HQ of MoD (Army) reserves the right to short-list applications and to fix cut-off percentage of marks without assigning any reason. Initial checking of applications will be done at Directorate General Recruiting, Army HQs. Only short-listed eligible candidates depending on aggregate percentage of marks scored will be called for SSB.
2. SSB : The short-listed candidates are called for SSB where candidates have to face many challenges at each step like WAT, TAT, PPDT , GTO , GPE, interview e.t.c. . For detailed information about SSB click here
3. MERIT LIST : It is to be noted that mere qualifying at the SSB interview does not confirm final selection. A merit list is prepared for every qualification subject separately purely on the basis of marks obtained by the candidates at SSB’s interview and as such higher educational qualifications, previous performances, NCC background e.t.c have no role to play. Those high in the merit list and who come within the stipulated vacancies, and are medically fit are issued joining instruction for pre commissioning training.
5. Medical Examination: Candidate recommended by the Service Selection Board will undergo a medical examination by a Board of Service Medical Officers.
