    hey friend
    IPS is a part of IAS.
    as the main exam is of IAS in which you have to choose IPS as your post, then you will be selected if you fullfill all the requirement.
    you have to work hard with compitative books and also have your updsted general awareness.

    There are no special requirements for appearing for the IPS exam as it is part of the Civil Services examination. So if you fulfill the criteria for civil services exams you, by default, qualify for IPS exams as well. IAS is the Indian Administrative Service while IPS is the Indian Police Service.a person who becomes an IPS, starts with the rank of a Superintendent of Police which is a high ranking post in the police set up. The career of IPS is considered to be more challenging than an IAS.The selection procedure is similar and all applicants have to pass through the same screening procedure. High rank holders become an IAS while those having lower ranks have to join IPS.

    Both IAS and IPS are streams that are a part of the joint exam conducted by UPSC. The selection procedure is similar and all applicants have to pass through the same screening procedure. High rank holders become an IAS while those having lower ranks have to join IPS.IAS personnel handle governmental affairs and are absorbed in the administrative setup, while IPS are personnel that take up the challenging responsibility of maintaining law and order in the society.While an IAS can hold posts like Cabinet Secretary, Under Secretary, Joint Secretary, Additional Secretary and Secretary, IPS officers clearly belong to the police force and hold posts like Superintendent of Police, Deputy Inspector General and Inspector General.

    IAS and IPS are the the two branches of the same civil services exam conducted by UPSC based on the rank in the same exam.
    Top few rankers become IAS and next some rankers becomes IPS.
    However,if you got IAS rank and you want become IPS you can do that.
    IAS stands for Indian Administrative Service whereas IPS stands for Indian Police Service.
    The syllabus for both the exams are same which includes general studies,english,essays and any any two optional subject of your choice from given list.
    For the preparation you should have good general knowledge,ability to express yourself and clear thorough knowledge of the subject you have chosen.
    do not forget to practice previous year papers and make your own notes so that you can go through all the syllabus in less time before exam.

    Hi dear, the very difference of this two is one administrative side and another is defense side. A law student have the best possibility to get this job easily because of they all wel known to the rules laws, which is very much necessary to a IPS officer. The best way is go for hard work nothing else. Best of luck.

    IAS stands for Indian Administrative Service and IPS stands for Indian Police Service.So from the names itself you can very well understand the difference of job type.Obviously,in Indian Police Service,added to educational eligibility you got to pass physical fitness eligibility as specified in the notification as well.Keep watch on the notifications.IAS notifications has already come out and the date of registration is gone.Good Luck anyways!!!!!

    IAS - INDIAN ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICE
    IPS - INDIAN POLICE SERVICE

    both comes under CIVIL SERVICE EXAM which is conducting by UPSC every year.
    candidate must clear prelims & main exam. candidate who cleared the exam with highest rank will become IAS.
    next to highest rank will become IPS.

    Dear Friend,

    * IAS Stands for Indian Administrative Services.

    * IPS Stands for Indian Police Services.


    As the name suggests , IAS officers have to control the administrative and governmental issues whereas IPS Officers come under the police department and they have to maintain law and order in any district or state where they are posted.

    * The Union Public Service Commission Conducts an examination ( Civil Services Examination) for the selection of candidates as IAS or IPS Officers.

    * In terms of Power , IAS have the more power in comparison to the IPS Officers.

    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.
