    Many candidates Who have real hunger to serve Indian Defense couldn’t apply because of the date of birth criteria. It should be relaxed a bit more. They belong from villages and completes their education late. Till they become knowledgeable enough their opportunities are gone while they still are capable to serve the nation. This is not Justified!
