I am not sure whether I am right person to reply, however to the best of my knowledge you can approach PSU Job like in Bank etc. where you will be selected based on qualification and without giving any exam. In PSU they have x-Army quota. This is my personal opinion and you are the best judge for your interest area.

Dear Officer, Salute to you.
Many of our members given you various suggestions. I may add, I'm a son of an Ex-Army officer, I know the importance of presence of the father amongst his wards during their early days of study. We hail from a remote village and my father was a few among those school dropouts, joined Indian Army during WW-II and took his studies in defence schools and gradually took his VRS as JCO when we just entered our college. Those days the pension for ex-services was not like what we have now-a-days. He could only join a post with state govt. as a Lab Asst. for want of higher academic qualification. With this backdrop I would give my views.
I believe you might be entitled to army pension, say about 30-40K p.m. or even higher. And you & family's/dependent parent's medical needs in defence run Command hospitals and entitled to Canteen facilities. Thus you are well placed so far as essentials of your family is concerned (presumably you are single earning member of your family). Therefore there is no immediate tensions to tackle.
Perhaps you have to seek another decent job to meet other commitments like childern's education, job/training, marriage(s) which could reasonably be met partly from your future career. I have no clue which job could be suitable to you.
But definitely there are bright avenues to pursue. Especially govt./semi-govt, CPSU/SPSU entities who fill up certain %age of vacancies reserved for Ex-services personnel and this will help you to manage competitions from freshers or experienced in evaluating the profiles. I'm not sure of pvt.sector would have such an opportunity. Mostly not, may be Security officers post are open to you, but there are ifs & buts whether you would like to take such jobs.
Also Defence Canteen Managers post, NCC or Para Military-like Home guards, Fire Stations/ organs are there for you to pick up.
If you don't mind you can also try Recruiting specialists, HR Managers, Manpower providers/BGV Consultants if you want to pursue to suit MBA HR profiles.
If you like to pursue Foreign Trade-Try Supply Chain Management/CHA, Importing & Exporting, Packing specialists, Warehousing, Consolidators, Foreign Exchange dealers etc.
Over view:
There is also room for concern. What the press reports in the last few days suggesting true-the govt is engaging in ways about cutting the pensionary benefits and enhancing the retiring age of defence personnel. I would suggest you may pl.consider timing of impending VRS on these two aspects if and when they are implemented. Though the impact of these actions cannot be judged upfront at this stage, sure to cause rethinking on your plans.
Wishing you & family all the best Officer.

As per my information regarding Armed forces, Air Force is having specialised jobs for each officers such as Pilots, Fighter jets, Helicopters and Cargo Planes, Technical jobs of Engineers and maintenance of Aircrafts, Logistics, Administration, Accounts. The officers are recruited in their branch and retired in the same branch so must be becoming specialised in their subject and may be in high demand in the corporate world compare to Army officers which may be having the advantages and disadvantages explained by learned Mr Divekar. Co incidentally both the officers referred in discussions from Airforce only.

Every uniformed person leaves service at some time or other.Time to prepare for civil life is needed,as fauji life is well organised and rules/regulations are reasonably well followed and working style is different from civil office.
Having said this, I would say that much of the work done in armed forces has no similarity to civil work.
I would always advice that in service itself,do suitable courses which give you additional skills, which can boost up your original skills and talents.
Plan departure from service at least 3-5 years ahead,and have a corpus to fall back on.
Keep yourself up to date with changes in civil working environment-what skills are in demand,what are the sun rise sectors,what are the skills which you have which can be honed to meet civil requirements.
Service personnel have one big advantage -discipline and integrity, as services by and large follow rule to the highest level possible.
Many service personnel join up in HR and Security in general,but proper skilling yourself can help get other jobs in demand in other fields,as well.
Planning,upskilling is the key to success in transition.

From India, Pune

Any feedback from learned poster of the original query.
It could be a guide to other offucers transitting from uniform to civil.
Though individual cases will take different decisions due to prrsonal views and needs
