IPS refers to Indian Police Service and to become an IPS officer, you need to qualify the Civil Services examination held by UPSC once every year.

Further, the same examination is conducted in three stages which includes Preliminary Test followed by Mains and Personal Interview respectively.

--> The basic qualifications required for appearing in the Civil Services examination are as here under :-

* You must have the nationality of India.

* Your age must lie within 21 years to 32 years. Age relaxation is allowed for reserved category candidates as per the government norms.

* You must have completed your graduation degree course in any discipline from a recognized university.

Note :- for the IPS wing of the Civil Services examination, you are required to hold the physical fitness as per the service requirements.

So, being a B.Tech degree holder, you need to qualify the Civil Services examination for becoming an IPS officer.
