    Can an Army officer (short service commission) with 2.5 years of service and 26 years of age appear in IAS/IPS exams? Information about reservation and age relaxation benefits for Army officers in such prestigious exams?

    I am an Army officer (short service commission) with 2.5 yrs of service and 26 yrs of age, can I appear in IAS/IPS exams?
    Is there any reserved percentage of seats for army officers or any other kind of relaxation in these exams?
    Is there any method for lateral entry into these services for army officers?
