    The minimum qualification required to appear for IAS exam is graduation in any discipline from a recognized university. Your age must be between 21 and 30 years. The syllabus of the Civil Services Aptitude Test consists of two compulsory subjects. The duration of each exam is 2 hours. There is a negative marking for the wrong answers. You can apply in both online and offline mode. If you are applying online, then you should pay a fee of Rs. 50/- in any of the State Bank branches. You can pay the cash through any of the facilities like Visa card, internet banking, Master Card, or Debit card.

    For the IAS and IPS the eligibility criteria is given below:
    The candidates must be graduated from a recognized university.
    The age should be between 21 to 30 years.
    There is relaxation for the SC/ST and OBC candidates.
    And there is no percentage of marks limitation.
    As you age is below 30 years then you can apply for the IAS and IPS exams………
