    hi
    yes friend, even the married people are allowed to give the IAS exam.
    In fact a couple of years ago there was a married woman who was amongst the top 10 ranks of the upsc civil services exam.
    All you need to do is fulfill the eligibility criteria that you should be a graduate in any stream from a recognized indian university and your age should be in between 21-30 years

    Hello,

    Yes of course , being a married that does not mean that you cannot do any thing , or you can sit for any exam . You are applicable for IAS exam , the thing that is most

    important is educational qualification and your age , that should meet the eligible criteria , if you possess the following criteria then yes you can apply for IAS exam 2014 ,

    without any hesitation . So here are the eligibility criteria :

    > > MUST BE GRADUATE IN ANY DISCIPLINE FROM RECOGNIZED UNIVERSITY .

    > > AGE FOR GENERAL CATEGORY MUST BE ABOVE 21 YEARS BUT NOT MORE THAN 30 YEARS

    * * FOR OBC : 21-33 YEARS ,

    * * FOR SC/ST : 21-35 YEARS .

    GOOD LUCK !

    Definitely you can apply.Married,Divorced,Widowed all candidates are allowed for Civil services irrespective of their marital status.Mainly the defence exams as NDA,CDS etc requires unmarried candidates.But for Civil services you need not be bachelor.There are several married candidates who even with child qualifies for Civil services.
