No there is no need of an Honours Degree for IAS examination.

You need only a Degree in any discipline from a UGC recognised University. There is no such rule that you must have a Honours Degree.

If you have the required age with Degree then you will be definitely eligible for IAS examination.

Just don’t worry you are definitely eligible. Please ignore if someone says these type of things to you.

Just take care that your age is between 21 to 30 years when you are applying for IAS examination.

There will be age relaxation on the basis of category to which the candidate belongs.

SC/ST – 5 years age relaxation

OBC- 3 years age relaxation

PWD- 10 years age relaxation

To become an IAS officer you must pass CSAT, Mains and personal Interview with merit.

Those who are high on merit will have greater chance of getting selected as an IAS officer.
