    Hi

    IAS stands for INDIAN ADMINISTRATION SERVICE

    This exam is conducted by UPSC.

    Whereas the

    PCS stands for PUNJAB CIVIL SERVICE

    PCS exam is conducted by the Punjab educational board.

    So both the exams are different and they have different syllabus for the entrance exam.


    Thank you.....
