    Hey pal,
    The age limit of writing the UPSC exams is:
    ->21-30 for OC
    ->21-33 for OBC
    ->21-37 for SC/ST

    Since the age you mentioned exceeds all the above mentioned 3 categories, so I'm afraid, it is not possible.

    • For Obc category the age limit is between 21 years to 33 years.
    • For sc/st category the age limit comes in between 21 years to 35 years.

    Dear Friend,

    Sorry to say but you are not eligible to become an IPS Officer at the age of 40 years even if you belong to any of the Reserved Categories.

    this is because the if you want to become the IPS Officer then you have to crack the Civil Services Examination.

    And first of all you must be eligible for the Civil Services Exam so that you can appear in the exam.

    The Age Limit Criteria for Civil Services Exam are :


    a) For General Category : 21-30 years.

    b) For OBC Category : 21-33 years.

    c) For SC/ST Category : 21-35 years.

    So , you can see here that your age is far more than the required .

    This is the information i have to the best of my knowledge regarding your query. Hope the information will help you to the extent you want.

    hi
    this is not possible to become an IPS officer at the age of 40 unless you are physically handicapped. Because the age limit for general category is 21-30 years whereas a relaxation of 3 and 5 years is given to the obc and the sc/st category respectively. A relaxation of 10 years is given to the physically handicapped people. Therefore it is not possible for you to get into the IPS at the age of 40

    Re: Is it possible to become an IPS officer at the age of 40 yrs?

    Dear friend,

    IPS stands for Indian Police Officer.

    To become an IPS Officer one needs to sit for the civil services exam.

    Civil services exam is conducted by UPSC once in a year.

    I am sorry to say but you are not eligible for IPS officer as you have crossed the age limits described in UPSC eligibility norms.

    You are not eligible for this being a candidate of any category.

    Here below I am giving the eligibility criteria which will make you more clear:-


    >> You must have completed your graduation from a recognised university.

    >> Even If you are in last year graduation then also you are eligible for the exam.

    >> Only passing marks are sufficient to appear for the exam.

    >> Any stream students are eligible for the exam.

    AGE LIMITS REQUIRED:-


    GENERAL- 21 TO 30 YRS

    OBC- 21 TO 33 YRS

    SC/ST- 21 TO 40 YRS

    As its clear from the given eligibility that you do not come under the given age limit so you should try for other private sector jobs if you are not happy with your current position.

    Do not get disheartened you have many other opportunities lying in your way so try for those ones.
