    Dear friend
    You are eligible according to your educational qualifications. UPSC recognizes majority of all foreign universities. But for conformation contact UGC.
    If you complete your graduation from a recognized University, you are eligible to write IAS exam.Along with educational qualification some other eligibility criteria you have to satisfy to write the IAS exam.


    other eligibility conditions to write IAS
    1)Nationality

    2)For other services, a candidate must be either
    (a) a citizen of India, or
    (b) a subject of Nepal, or
    (c) a subject of Bhutan, or
    (d) a Tibetan refugee who came over to India before 1st January, 1962 with the intention of permanently settling in India, or
    (e) a person of Indian origin who has migrated from Pakistan, Burma, Sri Lanka, East African countries of Kenya, Uganda, the United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi, Zaire, Ethiopia and Vietnam with the intention of permanently settling in India.

    Yes there is a rule that if you have foreign degree then you can not apply for any of the UPSC exams.

    The main Condition for UPSC exams ae that the candidate must have a bachelor degree from a recognized university of Indian and his age must be in between 21-30 years.

    So you can not apply if you have foreign degree.

    Thank you.

    Friend, as a general rule, in order to be eligible for UPSC Examination, any valid bachelor degree from any UGC RECOGNISED UNIVERSITY. Any bachelor degree obtained from the UGC recognised university makes the candidate eligible for UPSC Examination. Also, majority of foreign universities are too recognised by UGC. For this, you should visit the official website of UGC or you may contact the officials of UGC or UPSC for seeking clarification in this regard.
