    Re: At what age should I become an IPS officer?

    Dear, After completion of your Graduation you can appear for Civil Services Exam. and than on basis of marks you are selected for IPS. Actually IPS means Indian Police Service and its not a Rank or Post. Its a Department of Police. You can be an IPS Officer in your age of 21 if you got selection at this age in the rank of ACP or Addl.S.P (which is for Probation period of nearly 3 yrs.) and after probation period at about 24 - 25 yrs you became Superintendent of Police of a Dist. So, work hard and do your best. Its not so easy and not so tough. Its depends on your dedication on your Studies.

    Its purely depends on your dedication towards your study for becoming an IPS officer .

    But if you are careless in your preparation then it will take time for becoming an IPS officer .

    So its depends on your dedication towards your work .

    The criteria for the IPS exam is below :

    1) You should complete the graduation from any recognized university in any stream .

    2) If you are in final year of your graduation then also you can give the exam but before the main exam you should complete the graduation .

    3) Age limit is below :
    For general cast 21-30 years , 3 years upper age relaxation for obc cast ,5 years upper age relaxation for sc/st cast
    , 10 years upper age relaxation for physically handicapped .

    4) Maximum number of attempts that are allowed .

    Re: At what age should I become an IPS officer?

    to become an IPS officer you have to apply for the civil services examination conducted every year by upsc.
    the main eligibility to apply for this examination is graduation or engineering
    in any stream or subjects from a recognized university approved by UGC.

    to apply for this examination the aspirant must have age of 21 years .
    the age limit to apply for this examination is 21-30 years .
    the upper age limit is exceeded by 3 years for the OBC category and
    by 5 years for the SC/ST category on account of the
    age relaxation for these categories.

    the aspirants can even apply for this examination
    while pursuing the final years of their course as per the eligibility criteria for this examination.

    so there is no particular age to become an IPS officer .
    some aspirants become IPS at age of 23 or 25 while some manage to reach success at nearly 30 years.
    there are some that never succeed in this examination.

    Dear the eligibility criteria and age limit is decided by the UPSC board which is following :

    You should have a bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognized university or equivalent qualification

    Your age should not be less than 21 years and more than 30 years and relaxation in age as per government guidelines which is 5 years for SC/STs and 3 eyars for OBC category candidates, 10 years for PWDs and5 years for Ex-Servicemen

    If you have above mentioned eligibility then you can apply for IPS exam and if you think about your age then you should prepare for this exam from 19-20 years of age while pursuing your degree so that when you apply for this exam at 21 years of age after the completion of your degree so you could qualify the preliminary exam at once and then the mains exam and if you qualify all the steps as prelims, mains, physical test, medical test and interview process at the 21-22 years of age then you may become an IPS Officer and it would be the great achievement for you in your entire life and the history of the Indian government that you became an IPS Officer at the age of 22 years so that prepare hard for this exam and try to qualify at once.

    All the best

    Re: At what age should I become an IPS officer?

    Dear friend,

    Yes age is an important criteria to become an IPS Officer.

    First of all you need to know which exam you have to appear for IPS officer.

    You are required to give Civil services exam.

    Now I would like to mention that its not only the age in fact Your educational qualification and age are interrelated and you must fulfill these both conditions then only you can appear for Civil services exam.

    Here is the age limit criteria:-

    If you belong to General category your age must be between 21 to 30 yrs.

    If you are of OBC category then you have got 3 yrs of age relaxation.

    Belonging to SC/ST category you have 5 yrs of age relaxation.

    Physically handicapped candidates have got 10
    yrs of age relaxation.

    Now here below is the educational qualification which is must to become an IPS officer:-

    >> You must hold bachelors degree from a recognised university with any stream.

    >> Also final year students are also eligible for the exam.

    NATIONALITY- INDIAN

    One more important thing to be mentioned is no. of attempts you have for the following exam.

    >> Belonging to general category you have only 4 attempts.

    >> OBC candidates have got 7 no of attempts.

    >> Sc/St have got unlimited no of attempts.

    Re: At what age should I become an IPS officer?

    Dear Aspirant

    After completing your graduation which is the minimum educational eligibility criteria for the civil services examination fixed by the commission and the minimum age limits of 21 years if you are able to crack civil service examination you can become an IPS officer.So I think you can become an IPS officers between 21-30 years of age.But you have to dedicate yourself truly in order to become an IPS officers

    Civil service examination is not a game and it is one of the most prestigious examination conducted by UPSC once in a year.You have to plan well and understand the pattern of examination properly.Devote time and give time to prepare throughly for study.Suppose by god blessing you qualify civil service you begin your carrier as the Assistant Superintendent of Police and may retire as Directorate General of Police (DGP).You have also the opportunity of working in central government in Intelligence bureau,RAW
