    Hello

    YES YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR APPLYING IN IAS,IPS OR OTHER SERVICES.
    The criteria for applying in various civil services is follows
    1)The candidates must have completed graduation.
    2)No percentage bar.
    3)Age limit is
    21 to 30 years for general candidate
    21 to 33 years for OBC(Other Backward Classes)
    21 to 35 years for ex government serviceman.
    21 to 35 years for SC/ST.

    As you were a officer in defence force,you will get a upper age relaxation of 5 years,that will do for you.
    Hence you are eligible for IAS,IPS etc exams.

    There is no percentage bar for civil services.
    For more details visit the website of UPSC
