Annually, the UPSC conducts the Indian Engineering Service Examination, one of the most prestigious services in India for civil, electrical, electronics and communications and mechanical engineering services.

The UPSC recommends candidates for the vacant positions based on their performance in the written exams – preliminary and the mains- and an interview. However, you require a valid IES admit card to take these examinations.

The UPSC released IES admit card 2022 (preliminary) on 31st January 2022. The examination was held on 20th February 2022 across 42 major cities in India. However, the commission is yet to announce when it will release IES admit card 2022 for the mains.
