    IFS (Indian Forest Service) exam notification, Eligibility criteria and Mode of examination?

    Sir,
    I'm Kishor Kumar Sama from Hyderabad. Kindly let me know how to apply for the Indian Forest Services (IFS) examination. I'm presently Final Year student. My Course will be finished on 15th June, 2012. Am I eligible for the examination? It is mentioned in the upsc.gov.in website that the notification for IFS will be on 31st March, 2012. But, I couldn't find it any where. Where can I buy the applications in Hyderabad?
    Thanking you,
    Sincerly
