Eligibility to be an IFS Officer
1. Educational Qualification
To be eligible for becoming an IFS officer the candidate must possess a degree from an Indian University or an equivalent qualification. Those in the final year of a degree course can also appear in the Preliminary Examination taken every year by UPSC.

2. Age
The candidate must have attained the age of 21 years on 1st August of the year of examination and must not have attained 30 years of age on that date. <br />The upper age limit will be relaxed by 3 years for OBC candidates and 5 years for SC/ST candidates.
The upper age limit is also relaxed in favor of Defense Services Personnel.

3. Other Eligibility Conditions:
Since these services involves decision making towards the internal security of the country. So taking into account the sensitivity of the job the aspirants have to be eligible under certain specific conditions as given ahead.
1. For the IPS, the candidate must be a citizen of India.<br />2. For the other services, a candidate must be either:
a citizen of India, or
a subject of Nepal, or
a subject of Bhutan, or
a Tibetan refugee who came over to India before January 1, 1962, with the intention of permanently settling in India, or
a person of Indian origin who has migrated from Pakistan, Burma, Sri Lanka, East African countries of Kenya, Uganda, the United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi, Zaire, Ethiopia and Vietnam with the intention of permanently settling in India.

Process to be an IFS officer
To be an IFS officer one has to follow the below given steps:-

Step 1
As a first step the aspirant has to procure the “Application Form” along with “Information Brochure” from any of the “Head Post Offices or Post Offices” spread throughout the country and sent the filled Application form to:

The Secretary,
Union Public Service Commission,
Dholpur House,
New Delhi - 110011.

Step 2
In the month of May or June the aspirants have to take the “Preliminary examinations”. Consisting of two papers. The papers are on:
1. General Studies (150 marks)
2. Some optional subject (300 marks)

The optional subject for the second paper may be chosen from the following given subjects -
Agriculture
Animal Husbandry and veterinary science
Botany
Chemistry
Civil Engineering
Commerce
Economics
Electrical Engineering
Geography
Geology
Indian History
Law
Mathematics
Mechanical Engineering
Philosophy
Physics
Political Science
Psychology
Public Administration
Sociology
Statistics
Zoology
Note:- This exam is just a qualifying exam for the Final exam and scores obtained in this exam are not added to make the final result.

Step 3
Those candidates who are declared qualified in the “Preliminary examination” are supposed to take the final exam (normally held in the month of October) having following papers

1 Essay type Indian Language Qualifying Paper (300 marks)
1 English Qualifying Paper (300 marks)
1 General Essay type paper (200 marks)
2 General Studies papers (300 marks each)
4 Optional subjects papers (300 marks each)

Step 4
Once you are through the final stage is the interview. The aspirants are grilled in the interview to test their personality and mental ability. Then the final list of the successful candidates is prepared and the candidates who have secured very good rank out of 400-450(approx.) selected candidates undergo a probationary period. Training begins at the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussourie, where members of many elite Indian civil service organizations are trained.

After completing the initial training in Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, the probationers join the Foreign Service Institute in New Delhi for more training as well as attachments with different government bodies and tours both in India and abroad.

The whole process of being a trained IFS takes nearly 36 months.

At the last stage of the training the officer is assigned a compulsory foreign language (CFL). After a brief period of desk attachment in the Ministry of External Affairs, the officer is posted to an Indian diplomatic mission abroad where the CFL is the native language. There the officer undergoes language training and is expected to develop proficiency in his CFL and pass an examination before being allowed to continue in the service.

For preparation purpose I have attached few question papers too.

Thumbs up Re: From where to get the study material for IAS exam?

Study material for Civil service Examination.

is pretty famous for its unavailability in many places across the country.

this is because of some commercial problems

keeping this in mind .

when you're planning to attempt your exam ...try to collect the study material before your preparation starts for the exam..

this is hard copies of books method..

and in my view the best place to get books regarding CSE is delhi and hyderabad.

i found many books in hyderabad which are not available in many places.

or you can buy them online..there are many books who sell their books at discount rates.

or else if you want ebooks then there are some free downloadable sites like

www.onestopias.com

www.upsc-portal.com

so check them if you can download the study material regarding Civil Services Examination.

all the best

Dear,
For the preparation of the IAS exam , there is no specific books .
My suggestions are that you should be in a habit of reading newspapers.
Besides , you should subscribe for various educative magazines that will make you aware about the current affairs.
Your knowledge about the past i.e. history is quite important as well as of Civics.
ICSE books are quite useful in these as they have a widw and vast course.

You can also ask your seniors about the pattern of question paper.
I have also attached a few sample papers .
You can download it from here.

Thanks.

It's good to know that you want to prepare for IFS. There are many sources from where you can get the study material, but in my opinion Vajiram and Ravi is the best. Their online study material is very good. You can visit them at www.vajiramandravi.in .

If you like I can also send you the notes which I've bought from them. The also provide assistance and expert support.

Chanakya IAS is also providing study material for IAS and other all India level services. You can visit them at www.chanakyaias.com for more info.

Hope you find this info useful! And don't forget to check the study materials provided by Sri Ram IAS, Rau IAS and Dhyeya IAS. They are also considered one the best coaching centers for IAS and IFS. Best of luck!
