    if you satisfy the age criterion for appearing in the exam, i.e., maximum 30 yrs. for GEN, 33 yrs. for OBC, and 35 yrs. for SC/ST, then you're certainly eligible to apply for the exam for the post of IFS. but you can apply for the same, in the year 2013 as there are no posts available for your stream now. the sale of application forms/registration(applying offline/online, respectively) starts/closes in feb/march period and the examination is held in the months of may/june.

    all the best.
