    @ritesh bhatt
    As such there is no way now to apply since last date is missed by you, but you don’t need to wait for long since it happens twice in a year.
    Once in May/Jun and Nov/Dec so you need to wait till May

    Tentative dates for SSB interviews will be Oct-Nov & Apr-May respectively.If you are interested then you can also apply for UES which is specially for engineers.
