    Eligibility criteria:>>
    1) You should be a graduate from a recognized college in any stream..
    2) You should be in the age limit of 21-30 years for the general category,21-33 years for OBC and 21-35 years for SC/ST

    But aspirant must be expected to be medically fit, without any long term diseases. The physical requirements are barriers for IPS Indian Police services but not that considered in IAS you must be eligible as per the rules under Appendix III of the notification.
    Many Physically challenged candidates are also been eligible for this exam under only few services like IAS/ISS etc.,

    All the best!
