    Hello

    NO YOU CAN NOT APPLY FOR THE IES EXAM.

    The IES has two abbreviations.
    IES-Indian Engineering Services-The qualification required to apply for the IES exam is engineering degree in any stream,you with a MCA degree is not applicable.
    The engineering degree is applicable only,although MCA is considered equivalent to the B.TECH(but for the software field),but it requires exact B.TECH.

    Another abbreviations is
    IES-Indian Economic Services-The qualification required is post graduate in Economics/Applied Economics/Business economics,hence you are not applicable for the
    IES also.

    For more details visit the official website of the UPSC
