Indian Air Force Online Examination Portal has been launched by Union Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre. The Online Examination Portal has been developed in collaboration with Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC).

In a statement, said that it is the first amongst the three services to take up IT enabled Online Testing for induction in Officers and Airmen cadre. IAF will switch over to online testing from January 2018 for which online registration will commence from 15 Dec 17.

IAF said that though the existing system is time tested and well proven, constraints of testing capacity and geographical reach were major limitations in according opportunity to all the deserving and eligible candidates from across the country especially to rural youth.

To improve upon the system and to make it more candidate friendly while enhancing organisational efficiency, a MoU was signed on 31 Oct 17 with C-DAC. The project will be implemented with effect from Jan 2018 for Air Force Common Admission Test (AFCAT) for Officer's cadre and Scheduled test for Airmen Recruitment (STAR) for Airmen cadre.

Earlier IAF had hundred plus centres pan India for Officer cadre exam and fourteen centres for Airmen selection exams. Certain states / UTs did not have any testing centre. Consequently, candidates had to spend considerable time and resources on travelling to the testing centres.

In the new system, there would be about 760 examination centre's all over the country and the maximum distance a candidate would be required to travel now will be considerably less from the place of his/her residence. It will enable approximately four lakh candidates for Airmen selection and two lakh candidates for Officer's selection, to appear in the exam every six months.
