    If you are graduate from any recognized university with any discipline than you are eligible for IAS exam.You have completed B.Tech degree so you are applicable for IAS exam.

    >>Even you are in OBC category,the maximum age relaxations provided to you was upto 31 years,and this has also been exceeded by you ,so you will not be eligible for appearing in this exam.

    The general details for appearing in IAS exam is as follows:-

    @You must be graduation pass out from any stream.
    @Your minimum age for appearing in this exam is 21 years.
