  4. I would like to have some more details about training procedures. What happens if I can not to join scheduled training program because of my current job engagements. Also can someone resign from his current job if he is not getting approval for joining the training program. Will the army accept such candidiates

    ReplyDelete
  5. 1) For training procedure check this out-http://taofficers.blogspot.in/2013/08/training.html

    2) First thing your company is providing NOC for employment as a part time officer, in case if u want to serve in army and your company is not granting leave for your training purposes and service then u can resign from u r current job & join TA permanently.

    2. It is written on TA Application form that :Pay and Allowances and privileges will be same as Regular Army Officers when embodied for training and military service.
      N I have personally discuss this matter with Officer of 120 Infantry Battalion (TA) Bhubaneswar. They also said that TA provides permanent commission.

    Replies
    1. As per your query there is a direct entry for the candidate having NCC C certificate Gainfully employed(age18-42) as junior Commissioned officer (which is a rank below TA Officers & above jawan).
      There is no written exam, candidates will be interviewed initially by the Commanding Officer of the unit and then interviewed by the Sub Area/ Area Command Headquarters.
      The application of the recommended candidate will then be processed at the Addl Directorate General of Territorial Army, Army Headquarters.

    1. After clearing the written exam of TA, u'll be called for PIB. There u'll get a Personal Information Questionnaire form. In that form u'll mention all ur qualification including ur personal achievements. After clearing the PIB followed by SSB and commission,
      U can join the ecotask force corps after getting permission from ur regimental headquarters. First u get selected in exam, then everything will be easy for u. So appear the exam and do well. All the best.

  18. Hi Smruti...your blog is really very useful. i have appeared for cds ssb in Bangalore 10 years back and was out after 5 days of stay. want to know do they have the same process for T.A also. i read that you have been out twice from ssb...what could be the possible reason behind this ? i have to write my exam on 9 Feb in Lucknow. what prep i should do for it. i am a Ph,D student receiving a scholarship of 22,000/- p.m since it is not a full time job could it be a hindrance for me to clear the interview. since i do not file any ITR.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes they have same SSB for CDS & TA.
      As per TA commission you should be employed in any field.as you are not paying for ITR so show them that you have untaxable income (i,e less than 2 lakh).
      while submitting your application you just need to get sign of a gazetted officer on the application form.
      n you have to submit your affidavit income certificate at the time of interview.

      because of silly mistakes on conference i was conference out..

  28. Hello My Friend,

    You are doing a great service to the nation by maintaining this blog..


    I had asked this question on the facebook community and you directed me here for the answers but i couldnt find all of them but one..:)...Again i will ask you and i hope you can answer..



    1.
    Lets assume i join TA as an infantry officer....And if i am not wrong,i have 2 months of service due in every year..
    Lets assume i am free for two months in a year which are june and july..in 2014...can i choose my month of service?

    How will i select the months in 2015?..Will it be june and july only?..or can i do it in august and september?

    so my overall question is..i have to do 2 months of service but how do i select which months?and do i select them or does the TA decides it?







    2.Please explain the training with an example

    if i join TA In 2015


    in 2015..i will have to do 2 months of annaul training+1 month of recruit training

    in 2016..i will do 2 months of annaul training + post commission training of 10 weeks

    in 2017..i will only have to do 2 months of annual training..




    Many thanks sir..:)

"Self Employed candidates or having own Business are required to submit an Affidavit on Non-Judicial stamp paper value of Rs. 10/- duly attested by the Deputy Commissioner of the District / Gazetted Officer / Commissioned Officer......" .my father's friend in a judge in bangalore .but my father's (and his family's) agricultural lands are in Bijapur(a district in karnataka ) now if i get an affidavit prepared that i am employed in my father's fields working there part time .salary can be such that i don't have to file income tax returns .all that can be mentioned in affidavit .now ta advt. says affidavit must be attested by deputy commissioner of the district /gazatted officer/commissioned officer etc. can a judge in bangalore also issue the affidavit or it has to be done by someone from Bijapur ? both bangalore and bijapur are in k'nataka .i would be really grateful for help thank you

      Delete
    7. thanx for your appreciation..
      no such NOC is required...you can also use other reasons for self employed like doing tution,own business etc.
      for better information on this affidavit you better contact a nearest lawyer..he better know than me..
      don't waste your time on thinking about this affidavit just prepare your self for this exam..you will get an affidavit easily..

  66. Dear Smruti, Do officers in TA are only paid salary when they are called for Service and not for the period they are at home? What is the CTC at the time of training and at the time of service?

    Who are the gazetted officers from following..1. Principal of govt. school, 2. Registered MBBS Doctor, 3. Notary lawyer, 4. Manager of Govt. Bank, 5. Head of Govt. Hospital.

    3. Dear Sir, Thank you for your reply.

      Can you help me what is the Salary including all the benefits after joining service? It is written in the advt. that a candidate will undergo for two months training annually after joining, at that time, one will be considered as a trainee or as an TA officer?

      If one desires, can he provide permanent service in TA after joining?

    4. 1) TA officer
      2) yes you can leave your current job and completely merge into TA..its completely depends upon you.

  72. Hi, I am 40 yrs and have a security co. of mine. Father is retd Brigadier, Younger Brother is serving Col. I have NCC a certificate. My questions:
    1) Any flexibility in non graduates joining as TA officers
    2) I am a merchant Navy Captain, holding Masters licence issued by GOI, is that acceptable as a graduate , JNU accepts Masters Licence as equal to BSc Nautical Science
    3) What is the salary system in 2 months of service with TA each year, and what is the pay / perks for the remaining 10 months?
    4) In the 2 months of service each year can I be stationed in Delhi so I can also continue to monitor my business by phone, emails, or meetings in evenings after duty hours. I need to also take care of my business in the 2 months.
    5) If I get to Join, I guess it will be a Lieutenants rank, how is the promotion thereafter.
    6) When can the medical, csd, or other benefits be availed, only in 2 months or all the year round.

    Thanks.

  81. Dear Smruti,

    Thank you for having this blog that gives TA aspirants a platform for a discussion .

    I am a domicile of Uttar Pradesh ( lucknow ) residing in Karnataka since past 12 years and currently working with an MNC in Bangalore.

    I am in the process of filling the form but need clarification on point 19 - certificate to be rendered by candidates employed in private sector .
    > The worry is convincing my employer to sign and stamp this !
    Reason -
    One month basic training in the first year of commission.
     Two months annual training camp every year including the first year.
     Three months Post Commissioning training within first two years at IMA Dehradun.

    Why would any Private Company agree for this ?

    However I can try to talk and may be convince them if know more about Training schedule .
    Can the training be done on Weekends / Holidays and in Bangalore ?
    Please let me know the details.

    Regards,
    Sumit Chadha
