    Re: How to become customs officer?

    Hello,

    To become customs officer, you need to appear for civil services exam conducted by UPSC every year. The exam is for recruiting officers in 24 services. Customs is one of them.

    Plan of examination.

    Preliminary Stage: 2 papers (400 marks)
    1- General Studies (200 marks)
    2- Aptitude Test(200 marks)

    Both are of 2 hr duration, objective. There is 1/3rd negative marking for every wrong answer. Marks obtained in prelims is not added to final tally while calculating your rank. It is only for qualifying to give mains.

    Mains stage: 9 papers (Total 2000 marks)
    1- G.S. - 2 papers (300 marks each)
    2- First Optional - 2 papers (300 marks each)
    3- Second Optional - 2 papers (300 marks each)
    4- Essay paper - 1 paper (200 marks)
    5- English - 1 paper (qualifying only- marks not added in final tally)
    6- Indian language - 1 paper (qualifying only- marks not added in final tally)

    It is absolutely necessary to qualify English and Indian language papers. Otherwise, the rest of the answer sheets will not be evaluated. All the papers are of subjective nature. Time duration for all the papers is 3 hrs.

    Interview Stage (300 marks)
    Face-to-face interview by a board consisting of 5 members. The interview normally is of 30-40 min.

    Do revert back if you have any further queries.

    Thanks,
