    The minimum qualification required is graduation. There is no restriction on the area of specialisation. Since you are a Postgraduate you can apply too. There is a minimum age requirement of 18 years. The maximum age is 27 years but there are some relaxation for those from SC/ST caste. As part of the process you will be first required to appear for the Short Service Commission Exam. On clearing this there will be Group discussion and a PI. On clearing all these levels there will be a Physical Fitness test too. You need to clear this round to be finally selected. There will be notifications in the newspaper's too.

    You have to clear the Income Tax Officer’s entrance test and the personal interview thereafter to turn out to be an Income Tax Officer. The pre-requisite criterion to apply for the test is the completion of graduation. Aspirants should have conceded the qualifying course from a certified University. In addition, applicants should be aged 18 or above. However, they should not exceed the age limit of 25 years. There is considerable relaxation in age for SC/ST, OBC and for PWD’s. The Staff Service Commission conducts the written test. You don’t have to pursue any other courses for becoming the same. You are qualified for attending the test. The notification for the test will be published in leading employment dailies. Keep reading the same to know about the exams. Otherwise visit the authorized site of SSC to know about the test.
