    yes it is necessary for you to have the knowledge of politics if you are an IAS aspirant. You should know the functions of the state and national politics. The basic idea of how the government operatees and how other houses like rajya and lok sabha operates and how the currency is distributed in india and the affairs of india with other nations and you should have some knowlede of our country's history. Not only our country but also you should know about how other major countries dealt with their econommical problems etc. Since IAS is a very responsible post you should always be aware of whats going on in our country. ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR FUTURE.
