    Friend, please note that# Candidate who are colour blinds are not eligible for following UPSC Examinations : * NDA Examination * CDS Examination * CPF Examination# Also in the Civil Service Examination, colour blind candidates are not eligible Indian Police Service (IPS).# But a colour blind candidate is considered fully eligible & fit for Indian Administration Service (IAS).# As far as IAS Examination is concerned, there is no much emphasis given on physical & medical fitness level as required for IPS, NDA, CDS exams etc.

    yes, you are eligible for IAS exam:
    because IAS have nothing much to do with PHYSICAL and MEDICAL fitness.
    but you may not be able to apply for some of the civil exams as:
    1.NDA
    2.IPS
    3.CDS
    etc.
