    dear friend,

    To become a custom Officer you have to fulfill the following requirements :-

    You need to be:
    Alert, Diplomatic and discreet
    Fluent in English and local languages
    Above average at organising
    Excellent at communicating
    Extrovert, dynamic, meticulous
    A strong leader
    Aware about national and international affairs.
    Interested in human affairs
    Physically fitBut above all, you have to qualify through the Indian Civil Services examination. Very few manage to get through the ICS examination. Thereafter you can opt for different services based on your preference and ranking in the examination.

    Eligibility for ICS exam:-

    *The candidate must have complete the graduation in any trade..
    *The candidates age should be in between 21-30 years.

    These are the eligibility criteria you have to fulfill to appear in ICS(Indian Civil Service) exam.
    .


    Wish you all the best
