    Before preparing for IPS examination through civil service exam, you should know that this is the only post which requires one more stage to get finally selected for IPS post and that stage is physical and medical standards test because IPS is the highest rank in Police Department recruitment process and most of the IPS Officers are appointed to lead different departments or academies of defense service as - ITBP, BSF, CAPF, CRPF, IB, CBI, CID, RAW, CPF etc. so you can understand functions and duties of IPS Officer as a leader of force of any particular department that is why it is necessary to be fit and active for this post

    Minimum required physical and medical standards are following for IPS Officer post

    Height Male - 165 cm (General/ OBC/ SC) and 160 cm for ST Category candidates

    Height Female - 150 cm (General/OBC/SC) and 145 cm for ST Category candidates

    Chest Male - 84 cm - Minimum 5 cm expansion in chest

    Eye Sight - Distant vision for good eye should be - 6/6 or 6/9 and 6/12 or 6/9 for Worst eye. Near vision J 1 for good eye and J 2 for worst eye. The correction is by lenses only

    High Standards for the color blind test. No inherent night blindness and vision should be stereoscopic

    Blood Pressure : Depends on age as - 123 for 23 years of age, 124 for 24 year old candidate, should be 122 at 25 years of age and 28 year age requires 124 and follows different according to age

    IPS is one of the top posts of INDIA. for IPS you have to write Civil Services exam. that is conducted by UPSC. IN IPS almost every year 3,50,000 candidates appear for exam and at the end only almost 200 candidates are appointed as IPS officer.

    for Civil Services exam you need graduation degree fro recognized college or university.
    your age must be within 21 years to 30 years. there is relaxation in upper limit upto 3 years for OBC and 5 years for SC/ST candidates.

    before apply for Civil Services you need to check your physical standards. because it might leads to disqualification at the time of Physical and Medical Examination.
