Hello Raj, its glad to know that you are preparing for civil service, good luck for that.
Regarding your question, Defence forces doesn't provide, any special study leaves for preparing for other examinations other than their own, so there's ZERO possibility of study leave for civil services examination.
BUT, as an commissioned officer you are entitled to 80 days of annual leave. In addition, you can have sufficient time during working days to continue your preperation. So any desiring candidate can prepare well and devote sufficient time for other exam/studies.
My advice would be to not join the armed forces if your ultimate aim is to join civil services. This will distract you more than too be of any help. Also leaving armed forces after commissioning is a tedious process.
Hope you will find the best way for you.

@Maj Govinda Prasad Hello sir, i appreciate your quick response.
So, the thing is there isn't any 'Ultimate Goal' as such in my life. As far as my understanding goes, i just want to do something worthwhile and i can only see two options suited to me for now - CSE or CDS. Now, i want to experience every aspect of life bcz i don't know which service would get me a sense of satisfaction and peace of mind. So i want the taste of both of them.
So here are my silly questions:
1) Should i get into the CDS through short service commission and continue preparing for CSE along with the job or there is no scope for tasting both the services??
2) if i opt for preparing for CSE as an army officer then would i have to quit the army just to apply for UPSC-CSE or i can give CSE as an army officer?
3) After what period of time(5 yrs or 10 years?) i will be given a choice for quitting the army in SSC?
4) What do you think (as you have experienced the life of an army officer) will there be enough time for the CSE preparation? Could you give me a rough daily timetable of an army officer?
A serving officer has to apply for resignation if desiring to leave the organization before stipulated time for any reason be it selection in CSE. So its possible that a officer can join civil appointment but not a recommended process.
2. Officially you need the NOC before applying for CSE but its possible to apply while in service. If selected then you will be resigning from your rank to join civil appointment.
3. A SSC officer can seek for release at both 5 &10 years of service. Additionally, an officer can quit army anytime by opting for resignation. But its not guaranteed and takes long time usually.
4. As I mentioned earlier a motivated officer can prepare for CSE while on duty. On an average, one can take out 2-3 hours of personal study time daily. But its not possible during the first year of training at OTA.
