    dear friend ,

    IAS stands for Indian administrative service and this exam is conducted by UPSC once in a year .

    BA stands for bachelor of arts .since this a course for graduation degree of three years .

    therefore dear you are eligible for filling IAS application form but there are few more qualifications which you must have for filling this form .

    other required qualifications for this exam are :-

    you must be a citizen of India .

    your age must do not exceed 30 years and must not be below 21 years .

    but dear if you are SC/ST or OBC then age relaxation of 5 years is given .

    you must be physically and mentally fit .

    for further information please visit official website of UPSC :- www.upsc.gov.

    all the best for your dream .

    My dear friend
    IAS i.e Indian Administrative Service is a very high regarded Civil Service in India.

    The Eligibility criteria for IAS is as Under:

    --> You must have done Graduation in any Field.
    --> You must have Indian Nationality.
    --> You must be aging from 21-30 years for general category, 21-33 years for OBC and 21-35 years for SC/ST category.
    --> You must have at least 60 % marks in Graduation.
    --> You must do your graduation from a recognized University.


    Now since you have done B.A which is a graduation course.
    So you are eligible for the IAS if you satisfy the above mentioned criteria.

    A general student can give the IAS exam 4 times.
    An OBC student 7 times.
    And a SC/ST student infinite number of times.


    Regards
    tanveersandhu.
