    hi,

    Customs officers are the law enforcement professionals who focuses on the border security of a country.
    To be eligible for the customs officer, one has to appear in the Combined Graduate Level exam conducted by SSC.
    For that one has to be a graduate degree holder in any discipline with atleast 50% marks for the general category and 40% marks for SC/ST category.
    Also you must be 21 to 30 years of age on the 1st of August of the year of writing the exam. There is an upper age relaxation of 3 to 5 years for the SC/ST/OBC candidates.
    The exam consist of as usual three stages:
    one has to first clear off the prelim and then the Mains exam so as to be called for an interview cum fitness ability test. In that all your background details, physique, drug addiction checking, strength and criminal records are check out so as to confirm you are not a terrorist or outsider.
    After qualifying the fitness test one is scheduled on training and then recruited as position custom officer in India.

    thank you.............................
