    Physical fitness is necessary for applying the IPS officer. In addition, you must have a graduate degree in any discipline. Last semester students and those who are waiting for the results of graduation can also apply. The candidates should have at least 21 years while applying for the IPS exam. After the completion of mains, you must clear the physical fitness at the stage of interview. The candidates should be a citizen of India. There are specific physical requirements for men and women. There will be full inspection including eye vision, blood tests etc. You will get complete information by checking the official website.

    Dear friend

    My friend if you want to become a IPS officer then you have to be physically fit,there is no concession for PH candidates.As you have to lead a Police force ,hence you have to be completely physically fit.


    As you know to become a IPS officer you have to appear for CSAT exam conducted by UPSc every year.

    Eligibility for IPS:

    1.You must be at least 21 years of age at the time of filling the Civil Services (Preliminary) Exam form and not more than 30 years of age,33 for OBCs and 35 for SCs/STs

    2.Four attempts for open, seven for OBCs and no limit for SCs/STs.

    3.You should have a graduate degree from any college which is recognized by UGC, or possess an equivalent qualification.

    4.If you are in the final semester or have taken their final degree exam but are awaiting the results can also appear for the IPS Preliminary examination provided they furnish their proof of degree while filling the Mains form.
