How can I became a Para Commando in INDIAN ARMY ?
shobhna chaturvedi
Hi Devansh, Para Commandos are specially trained soldiers of Indian Army which are still only 1 percent of the total strength. There is no different exam for this, once you join Army, you will have the opportunity to join the special forces and you can do it only if found capable. Good luck!
