    Dear friend,

    Yes of course why not. There is no doubt on becoming IPS officer being from commerce background.

    See It does not matter at all that you belong from which background.

    All candidates from every background are eligible for IAS exam provided they fulfill the eligibility criteria required for the exam.

    Either you belong to science, commerce, arts, medical, engineering etc. or any field you are eligible to apply for the exam.

    See to become an IPS officer you are required to sit for civil services exam which is conducted once in a year by UPSC.

    The exam consists of stages:-

    Like 1st stage is prelims which is purely aptitude bases and general knowledge which doesnot relate to any specific subjects.

    And next when you talk about mains i.e, second stage in this you can choose any subject according to your comfort ( the subjects approved by UPSC)

    When you qualify in these 2 stages you are called for an interview which is final stage of the exam.

    ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA TO KEEP IN MIND:-


    >> you must be a graduate with any stream either three year or 4 yrs bachelors program from a recognised university.

    >> Students in the final year are also eligible to sit in the exam.

    No stream restriction.

    for more information you can always check the official website of UPSC.
