    Dear aspirant,

    -If you are currently employed in Indian army then you are not eligible for Civil services exam because Indian army itself is a central government job.


    -So if you want to apply for IAS then you have to resign from your army post then only you will be eligible for IAS post.


    -You should be graduate also if you want to apply for IAS exam.


    -Age must be between 21 to 30 years .


    BEST OF LUCK....
