    Re: What is the step by step procedure to become a IAS Officer?

    If you want to become an IAS officer then there are two way through which you can achieve your dream.

    One way :

    Recruitment into IAS is done by appointment by selection through powers conferred by section 3 of the All India Services.

    Candidates from State Civil Service through promotion and Non State Civil Service through appointment are recruited into IAS.

    You will start your careers in the state administration at the sub-divisional level as a sub divisional magistrate. The post of District Officer is also known as District Magistrate, District Collector or Deputy Commissioner. Since it is the most identifiable position in the IAS services, it is also the post which most people identify with IAS.

    Second way :

    You can also become an IAS officer after taking the civil service exam.

    The recruitment procedure includes:

    Step 1->Preliminary exam:There will be two papers common for all students .

    Step 2-> Main exam: Only those who have cleared the preliminary exam will be allowed to appear for the main exam.It includes :

    1.Written exam :There will be total 9 papers .Candidates have to choose 2 optional subjects in which there will be total 4 papers will be taken .

    2.Interview :Those candidates who successfully cleared the exam will get call for the Interview
