    Dear friend,

    You are eligible for IAS but not for IPS.

    For IAS : No requirements of height.

    For IPS : Male - 165 cm for GEN/OBC/SC
    162.5 for ST

    Female - 155 cm for GEN/OBC/SC
    154 cm for ST

    Both comes under civil services. For that you give civil services examination.

    Age Limit : Candidate must be under 21-30 years.

    Educational requirements :
    Candidate should be graduate from any recognized university and also can apply in last year of graduation.

    Good Luck

    Friend, you should complete your graduation first. As you 5 feet 4 inches i.e. 160 cm you can easily give IPS exam. And for IAS exam no physical qualification is required. Remember one more thing, age limit for these both exams is 21-30 years.

    Dear Hight of the candidate only matters for IPS - Indian Police Service Examination not for IAS examination that is why you do not need to worry about IAS Examination and apply for Indian Administrative Service Examination

    According to your mentioned Hight you are - 162.20 cm long which is not enough for IPS Officer post because it requires 165 cm of hight for male candidate but if you belongs to ST category then only you will get 5 cm of relaxation in hight and you will need only 160 cm of hight for IPS Officer post but there is no criteria for Indian Administrative Service Examination but you must have following eligibility criteria to apply for both exams

    You must posses a bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognized university and final year pursuing candidates are also eligible to apply for this exam

    Age should not be less than 21 years and more than 30 years and relaxation in upper age as per government guidelines which is 5 years for SC/ST and 3 years for OBC category candidates

    IPS is a departmental examination and you directly can not apply for this exam because IPS Officers does not selected by open and direct recruitment, to apply for this examination you should have already in relevant service then only you will be eligible for IPS Examination

    All the best

    Friend, sorry to say that you are only eligible for IAS Examination and not eligible for IPS Examination. Because your present height is shorter than the required height for IPS.But in case of IAS Exsmination, there is no any emphasis given on height. So you are fully eligible for IAS Examination.For being eligible for IAS Examination, you must have bachelor degree in any discipline. Must be subject of India.Age required is 20-30 years for General category. Age required is 20-33 years for OBC category. Age required is 20-35 years for Scheduled Caste & Scheduled Tribe categories.

    Re: Am I eligible for IAS/IPS if my height is 5 feet 4 inches?

    You seem eligible for IAS provided you fulfill all the other minium eligiblity requirement after completing your B.com .

    Candidate must have bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognized university for IAS examination.

    Age Limit for Indian Administartive Service Examination should not be less than 21 years and more than 30 years

    though some relaxation in upper age as per government guidelines is provided to SC,ST ,OBC category candidates.

    Age Relaxation - 5 years for SC/ST and 3 years for OBC category candidates

    But with this height you are not eligible for IPS until you fall under the reserved category ST.

    As 5 foot 4 inches equals 162.56 centimeters.

    Physical Standards set by UPSC for Indian Police Service Examination

    Hight Male - 165 cm for General/OBC/SC and 160 cm for ST category candidates

    Hight Female - 150 cm for General/OBC/SC and 145 cm for ST category candidates

    Chest Male - 84 cm and +/-5 cm.

    Chest Female - 79 cm and +/- 5cm.

    Other basic eligibility criteria for IPS Exam are same for IAS and IPS except the physical standards.

    Bachelor degree in any discipline from any recognized university

    The Age limit should be between 21-30 yrs

    Number of attempts for General Candidate - 4

    hi,
    you are not eligible for IPS exam if you are male candidates.

    but you can join IAS exam after graduation degree.

    Your age should be between 21-30 years.

    You must be physically as well as mentally fit.

    As concrete on IPS exam, this exam requires some specific physical standard.

    Minimum height is 165 cms for male candidates.

    Height reservation is given to SC/st category.

    Attachment 12060
    150 cms is for female candidates.

    but your height is 160 cms, therefore you are not eligible for IPS exam,

    Good luck...................

    5'4" is 160cm and you are eligible for IPS with this height.And as far as it regards to other services in Civil Services as Administrative services,Revenue services,Foreign services etc,you are completely eligible with this height.There will be no problem as such.The physical standards in Civil services are not that tough and strict like Army or Defence services other than in Police services i.e. IPS
