    No , Indian Civil service exam is not under civil service exam .

    This exam is conduct for recruiting the candidate of forest officer through Indian Forest Service exam .

    Indian Civil Service exam is conduct for -

    IAS

    IPS

    IRS

    IFS (Indian foreign Service)

    So Indian Forest service exam is not under Civil Service Exam .

    .

    IFoS is actually a separate service than Civil service.But from this year,the prelims for both the exams will be same.The Mains and Interview as well as posting will be separate.You can check about the details on the notification of this year of Civil services exam on UPSC website.The exam is conducted by UPSC but the procedures are separate.

    The exam is conducted in three parts
    1)Preliminary Exam
    2)Mains Exam
    3)Interview

    The preliminary exam is a same for all other exam like IAS,IPS,but the mains question papers is different for all other exam.

    A old notification of civil service examination is uploaded for your reference.

    Re: Is it true that IFS (Forest) is also included under UPSC Civil Services Recruitment?

    Definitely there is a part of Indian Forest Service in the civil service examination because the preliminary examination of civil service exam is also the prelims of forest service examination means if you want to apply for Indian Forest Service examination then you need to qualify civil service preliminary examination first that contains 2 papers in objective type pattern and each paper contains 200 marks and if you could not qualify civil service prelims examination then you will not be considered eligible for mains examination of Indian Forest service that is why you should understand it positive relation because prelims is mandatory to eliminate some candidates and find out some best candidates for Indian Forest Service Examination

    Mains examination of Indian Forest service will be conducted only in English Medium and there will be following papers conducted in this section only in conventional type pattern

    Paper I - General Knowledge - 300 marks

    Paper II - General English - 300 marks

    Paper III, IV, V and VI - Any two optional subjects chosen by the candidate according to the rules in the selection of optional subjects

    All optional subjects and all other details are mentioned in the attached advertisement please download

    All the best
