    hello friend,

    UPSC has not fix any specific criteria for the physical standard for IFS.
    There is no factor for physical fitness
    But most of the UPSC exams wants their candidate to be physically fit.
    They also have to fit in the sence of mentally.


    You will get most of the help from the link which I have attached here.
