This is the most coveted and prestigious profession, and grants us not only power but authority to exercise it as well.
The application form for the exam can be quite simply obtained from any post office in the nation. To administer our country is the right of every individual. The minimal eligibility criteria and the easy availability of forms, is an evidence of this. To be a Civil Servant the only objective of desirous citizens should be to devote their all for preparation for the test Security+ certification.
Selection process of the Indian Civil Services Exam is three fold. The first is a preliminary test consisting of two ‘multiple choice questions’ papers. It is not difficult to pass this stage. The next is the main examination which is subjective and detailed. Qualifying for the final step to the dream job, that is the interview, on the basis of the written exam, is a Herculean task. This is where candidates get stuck. Some appear for this more than once and fail every time. This proves how arduous it is to become an administrator of India.
Fortunate are those who cross the hurdles of civil services exam. On the basis of the rank obtained, the qualified aspirant can get recruited for either IAS (Indian Administrative Service), IFS (Indian Foreign Service), IPS (Indian Police Service) or other departments of administration under the government of India, namely Secretariat, Post and Telegraph, Finance and Revenue.
