    Hello Aspirant!

    To apply for IAS examination you must be a Citizen of India.For this you have to be declare that you are Resident of India and not other counties.
    Even you are staying in USA you can apply but you cannot be a Citizen of USA then you are eligible.

    Good luck

    1)CSAT (civil service aptitude test

    2)main exam

    No you can't able to give IAS exam,as you moved to USA.
    in IAS exam,the strict condition is of citizen of.India and lived in India
    and as you moved with your husband your citizenship also lost.
    now you NRI and NRI's are not eligible for exam.
    so I'll refer to try private sector.

    Dear friend,

    Here I would like to make you clear that Living in USA does not prohibit from you from giving the IAS exam.

    Because in eligibilty criteria of UPSC its not mentioned thatt if you live in other country you are not eligible for the exam.

    You are already holding Indian citizenship as you have moved to USA just because of your husband's job.

    So if you are having Indian nationality no need to worry.

    Surely you can apply for IAS exam.

    Here below I am providing you with other details:-

    >> You must hold bachelors degree.

    >> Any stream candidate can apply for the exam.

    >> You must have Indian citizenship to apply for the exam.

    >> Your age should be between 21 to 30 yrs (general category).

    21 to 35 yrs - SC/ST
    21 to 33 yrs- OBC
    21 to 40 yrs- PH

    For more details you can visit official website of UPSC.

    Yes,surely since you are a not an American Citizen.And if you have registered yourself as Indian Citizen then you are surely eligible for IAS entrance.I think you have a proof like voter id card and so then don't worry you can fill up the form online at upsconline.nic.in.And then come and give the entrance here.But you must be within 21-30 years of age.
