    I am sorry to tell, you are not eligible for UPSC as you are not a SC/ST candidate. For govt. servant there is no relaxation criteria available.

    Below is the eligibility criteria:

    - Graduation from govt. recognized university.

    - Indian citizenship

    - Age of 21 to 30 years.

    - Age relaxation of 3 and 5 years for OBC and SC/ST category.
