The territorial army exam is a national exam conducted by the Indian Territorial army recruitment authority to select candidates for their various posts in the  Territorial army. 

The Territorial Army is an integral part of the Indian Army by law. The composition of the Indian Army as defined in Part I of the Defence Services Regulations states that "the army comprises regular army, regular reserves, and the Territorial Army".Part-time TA personnel may also fall within the definition of the regular army when attached to a unit. The Territorial Army Act 1948 states that for the purpose of sections 128, 130, and 131 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), "all officers, non-commissioned officers and other enrolled persons who have been attached to a unit shall be deemed to be officers, non-commissioned officers and soldiers respectively of the Regular Army". This is further complemented in the Army Act, 1950, which defines regular army as "regular army means officers, junior commissioned officers, warrant officers, non-commissioned officers and other enrolled persons who, by their commission, warrant, terms of enrolment or otherwise, are liable to render continuously for a term military service to the [Indian] Union in any part of the world, including persons belonging to the Reserve Forces and the Territorial Army when called out on permanent service".

Liabilities of TA personnel, as per TA Act 1948, states that "every officer or enrolled person shall be liable to perform military service: when called out in the prescribed manner to act in support of the civil power or to provide essential guards; when embodied in the prescribed manner for training or for supporting or supplementing the regular forces; and when attached to any regular forces either at his own request or under the prescribed conditions". It also says no personnel has any liability to serve beyond the "limits of India", unless under a General or by special order of the Government of India.

The concept of the TA was redefined multiple times by the TA Review Committee nominated by the Government of India. The first review of 1971 defined it as "... to provide part-time military training to gainfully employed citizens of the nation", second review of 1982 said "... TA should be based on part-time and full-time units and recruitment to be all citizens who fulfil the prescribed standard, while in consonance with the traditional concept, every effort should be made to enroll gainfully employed persons", the third review of 1995 recommended a restructure to make it a tri-service organisation, including the Indian Navy and the Indian Air Force, named the Indian Territorial Force and pass the new Indian Territorial Force Act.
