Why Indian Army Needs Engineers Like You?

Modern warfare is a technology-driven and knowledge-intensive arena.

The present Army of any Nation, especially India, offers a vast scope to grow and explore technology-based fighting spirit.

Your young and energetic mind can contribute immensely in the defence sector, notably the Indian Army through your engineering skills and aptitude in various means, which may never be explored in the civil stream due to limited growth potential.

Today the Indian Army defends high-end equipment, which is based out of the Armoured, Mechanised, Artillery & Air front followed by Highly sophisticated communication, Electrical, Mechanical, and networking systems.

The logistic support of the Army Service Corps, Army Ordnance Corps also needs Engineers to accomplish their tasks in a fast-track manner to match with the Fighting troops.

Besides, the Engineering skills in Infantry, especially Para SF and NSG, have greater importance in the execution part of operational tasks in present challenging environments.

The Army is build of a variety of minds. Therefore there is a vast scope in Human Resource Management as well as Skill innovations and modification where an Engineer can contribute abundantly.

Therefore, all those interested in working away from their “9 to 5, weekends off, monotonous lifestyle”, can think about a new way of life, where you can undoubtedly get professional as well as self-satisfaction because you are going to serve the Nation.

Few Important Points for the TGC Entry

  • Technical Graduate Commission(TGC) from IMA is much better than the Short Service Commission (SSC) entry from OTA because of the permanency and service profile in a long and stable continued service.
  • The candidates who are in the third year of Engineering may have the opportunity to recommend to become Army Officers under University Graduate Entry(UGE).
  • TGC is another opportunity who missed out to join the Army through UGC or NDA/PCM(+2) Entry.
  • The candidates of the final semester students at the age of 20 to the individual who are presently working in multinational companies can apply till the age of 26 at present

    (Near about 6-7 months is required to complete all the formalities. Hence, those who just completed 26 years can also submit their application)
  • There are no cut off marks mentioned explicitly in any notification.

    However, cut off per cent is always based on the number of applications submitted for a particular time or may depend on vacancy.

    In general terms, you will be called in case you have obtained near about 65-70 overall marks in your semester examination (Only my assumption).
  • The backlog will not be counted as long as you have cleared & obtained the mark sheet.
  • The Technical Graduation Commission(TGC) Entry officer will get Anti-date seniority of one year.
  • This will facilitate the successful officer will assume as Captain on completion of one year from commissioned Date.

Tips On Reporting to SSB Center

Call up letter will be issued in the electronic medium to facilitate speedy information to you(Via Email & SMS).

Only shortlisted candidates based on the academic performance (Cut off percentage will be decided at each time/stream/or depend upon the application received)

You will make your arrangements to reach the nearest railway station/centre of Selection Centres as per the time specified.

No early or later entry is permitted for any administrative reasons. Hence try to reach in time.

I suggest you reach a minimum of six hours early at the station to take care of your peace of mind, including rest and a relaxed mind to attend the first day processes of the interview, i.e. screening test

Your educational documents in original, print out of online application & your NCC “C” certificate, or any outstanding academic & sports or any other eventful certificate, should keep for first-day verification on reporting at Reception at SSB.

You are advised to keep your original and photocopies separately in different files/folders to save you time in the initial registration time.

You should enter the Centre with complete peace of mind with cent per cent alertness to face SSB.

The SSB Test would eventually see if you have the Officer Like Qualities and can become a capable officer after undergoing academy training

This also requires you to have a good personality. Build an Officer Like Personality from Day 1 with the Officers recommended Personal Development Books

SSB Centre Activities

Stage-I

>> Officer Intelligence Rating(OIR) Tests

This test will conduct to know about the candidate’s level of intelligence and competence.

All objective type questions without negative marking. Hence, no need to panic to attend(Just like MCQs)

>> Picture Perception & Description Test(PP&DT)

You will be required to write a story based on the picture and participate in discussions within a group.

This group discussion and your participation is mandatory to clear the first stage.

You will be under the observant eye of a panel of the SSB team(Psychologist, Group Testing Officer(GTO), Interviewing Officer(IO).

Be calm, clear, and attentive to involve discussion. You will not try to be the superhero but participate in the way in the college to put across your point of view in a gentle, respectful & educative approach.

You should remember, that your group members are equally smart and kind in academics or other activities.

But what matters is your approach towards your subject matter, and approach towards your team (group) while agreeing & disagreeing and accepting & taking alone with your group.

So make sure you prepare well for your Screening Test well as this will determine whether you would proceed to the next stage or not.

Best Books To Refer:

The “SSB OIR & PPDT: Complete Guide To Stage 1” is a recommended book to help you prepare well for the Screening Test. Read our Short Review Here

>> Few Points For Those Who Screen Out

  • Your return plan to the home town is ready through reservation or local visit program in hand.
  • Keep your valuable, including an original academic certificate in safe custody.
  • Carry only the required cash in your hand and the password of the ATM card in your mind.
  • Take stock of your performance during QIR and subsequent tests in SSB and note it down for future reference. It is vital for the next SSB for your self-evaluation.
  • Self Evaluation is an essential requirement to get success next time.

    Most of the potential candidates will generally take less importance to this fact. Hence, most of them are facing the same fate as early as they received it.

    Not be disheartened, and in fact, you should be happy to get another opportunity to face SSB better prepared than today.

A lot of candidates fail during their SSB Tests due to small negligence shown in their SSB procedures.

It’s important to practice and prepare for the various SSB test and most importantly have complete knowledge of the SSB procedures.

  • The factors in your bucket(Skills, Passion, Likes, etc)
  • Good Educational Background.
  • Adequate life experience(Good & Bad life experiences).
  • An aim in life & future outlook
  • Your strengths & Weaknesses

The outcome of Your SSB

  • The selection team will expect you to contribute beyond your professional qualification in defence.
  • You will be much more motivated and gain a new perspective once you are through the interview.
  • You will be capable enough to face box challenges and make quick decisions in the future.
  • You will get a chance to interact with students/professionals who come from different ideologies, streams, and walks of life.
  • Finally, One should be satisfied despite the outcome of the interview, and it should not dishearten you from applying for any positions in Civil Stream in the future.
  • Please Understand, SSB never works with the vacancy of a particular course or year because the Army needs a leader for the team with commitment.

Medical Test

The Medical authorities will verify your medical health applicable for the training requirement of the defence at your age.

The four to six days of various tests on Medical, Surgical, Eye, Ent, Ear, Dental etc. will be conducted in the nearest Service Hospital under specialists/Head of the Departments.

You should be aware of physical standards, and limits, including height, weight, eyesight, tattoo(s) & surgeries(if any).

Fitness checks from appropriate medical specialists before attending SSB will reduce your rejection in medical.

Your cent per cent of medical fitness will be the essential mandatory requirement to join IMA for one year(Two Terms) of rigorous training.

However, you will be allowed to appear for review by the medical board after 42 days in case you have minor medical issues.

However, you should carry out an extensive medical check before looking at SSB if you are feeling uneasiness while doing physical fitness activities.

Note:

After Final Selection, the Recommended Candidates for the 136th TGC Entry Course will start their 49 weeks of training on 01 January 2023 at Indian Military Academy, Dehradun

  1. Hello,
    I am studying in final year and due to covid-19 government haven’t conducted any exam for engineering this year.
    So, my question is,
    If I am having any backlogs of 3rd year, am I still eligible to apply the TGC?

    Reply
    • You can apply for TGC-132 course(Jan 2021) and last date of online submission will be closed on 26 August 2020. The proof of the Degree course(provisional Degree) will submit by 01 January 2021 ie the day joining IMA for training.
