I appreciate your decision to become an IAS officer.
We will definitely help you to get knowledge what to do and how to do.
As you are in your B.Tech First year. after completing your degree(B.Tech) you are eligible to appear in IAS Entrance exam.

The basic eligibility criteria to appear in this examination are you must be a graduate with 21 years of age .

if you fulfill this criteria then you are eligible for IAS Entrance examination.
Actually IAS is a Service not an Examination.
To become IAS officer one has to clear an Examination called Civil Service Examination. This examination is conducted by UPSC , A govt body which is meant to recruit top brains in to the responsible services like IAS/IPS/IFS etc.,

This exam is conducted every year.
After the Notification of this exam one has to fill the application form and get ready for the three stage examination
->Stage 1 prelims(Now CSAT)
->Stage 2 Manis
->Stage 3 Interview round.

Each and every stage has to be cleared in order to get the job as any officer.
After completing the final round that is Interview you will be given a rank according to that your service will be decided.

Coming to preparation each and every Individual prepares differently for this examination. Some prefer to prepare at home ,Some other prefer to prepare themselves in Coaching centers.

Its not the correct time to tell about the books which you need to prepare because it becomes too early to talk about it.
The matter of books comes only when you seriously sit for preparation till then you can generally gather material from sources like NET/Newspaper/TV/Society etc.,

If you need any further help feel free to contact.
All the best

Regards

hi...its very good that you have started thinking about the indian administrative services right from now ,actuallt you will have lots of time to prepare for it from now on in engineering ,what you have to do is that freeze your subjects which you want to take in the main examination ,start from the basics of the both the examinations and start preparing for it from now on itself ,the list of subjects will be available in the information brochure of the examination which i will be attaching you can see from that ,also what you have to so is that prepare well for the general knowledge because this is the subject which acually decides the rank and the difference between selection and non selection ,also if possible take some kind of coaching because the coaching institutes will give you proper guidance and also the proper back drop of the examination ,
i am attaching some of the previous years question papers of the general knowledge paper to give you an idea about the level of preepration that is required to pass this examination and for you to understand hou mych hard work you have to put in,

For becoming an IAS officer you will prepare for the UPSC civiol service exam for IAS.

This exam conducts in 3 stages:-

1.CSAT in which all question will be totally objective type but the question are from general aptitude and current affairs and general knowledge.
2.MAIN in which question will be discriptive.
3.INTERVIEW. you can choose the language for your interview but same language should be for the exam.

As you said that you are doing B.Tech then you should choose math for optional subjects but for IAS exam you will have to choose 2 optional subjects so you can choose other as per your interest.


We will happy to help you but you didn't tell us that from which subjects you want to write the exam.

But yes for CSAT you should read the news, general history,political events and related matter.general geography etc.For this you can follow the UPKAR'S general knowledge book.

You can see the model paper of CSAT at the official site-http://www.upsc.gov.in/
