Indian Administrative Services

Founded in 1858, the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) continues to be among the country's top-notch, and lucrative career opportunity. IAS is rightly called the administrative arm of All India Services and has been carrying the legacy forward for several decades now.

At the time of its inception in 1858, IAS was called "Imperial Civil Service", with the recruits going in to serve the British government, under East India Company. It was on 26th January 1950, our Republic Day, that the name was changed to "Indian Administrative Services". The recruitment process is considered to be among the most rigorous and competition-driven in India. However, the perks are well and above the efforts.

When and if one manages to reach in the higher ranks, an IAS officer may also be given the responsibility of handling government departments/ministries. Officers go on to represent the country in international organisations such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, United Nations etc.
