NDA Cutoff is the minimum qualifying marks required by a candidate to score in order to qualify for the next level of the recruitment process. The NDA 2 2016 Cutoff will be decided by the conducting body of the exam i.e. UPSC.

The candidates can go through the given table to have an estimate of the NDA Cut-off of previous years. You should know that the cut off given for the current year is just an estimate, it can easily fluctuate. You should wait for the declaration of the NDA Results and then you will know about the NDA Cutoff.
