    Candidates who have pursued either mechanical, electrical, electronics and communication or civil engineering are allowed to apply for this exam. So you cannot apply for this post. However you can apply for various other Government jobs. Options like applying for suitable positions in the irrigation, agricultural, dairy departments and food corporation are available. You can also take up sales, marketing or service oriented jobs of agricultural equipments. Also you have options to apply for private firms which are in the field of designing and manufacturing agricultural oriented machines. You can check employment news regularly to know about the various options available for you.

    IES(indian engineering services)exam is conducted by UPSC and it is is for engineering graduates.
    the minimum eligibility criteria is to have academic qualification of bachelors degree in engineering from following streams
    Electrical Engineering
    Electronics & Communications Engineering

    as your stream of engineering is argricultural and irrigation engineering and it comes under civil you are eligible for IES exam.
    but now you are in third year to apply for IES you must be a engineering graduate or should be in your final year of engineering. so apply for IES exam next year.

    For IES exam one should have a degree in engineering or technology

    As you have have B.E. Bachelor in Engineering you can sit in Indian Engineering services exam.

    You will get officer job in agriculture or Irrigation department of govt. of India,

    As very less candidates of agricultue and irrigation sit in Exam so chances of clearing are more.

    Hii
    Yes,you can easily appear for the IES exam with less than 60% marks as there is no limit for the marks & the student is only a pass out from the bachelors programme.

    The eligibility criteria for the same is as under-

    1. You must passed in b.tech or b.e from any college,
    2. Your age should be between 21 year to 30 year.
    3. Final year students are also eligible for this.
    Good luck

    For IES , only engineers from core branches can apply i.e electrical , civil & mechanical. So your branch is different from core civil branch, so you are not eligible.
