Indian Administrative Service (IAS)

  • The Indian Administrative Service (IAS) is an all India administrative civil service; IAS officers have significant and strategic positions in the Union Government, States and public-sector enterprises.
  • India follows a Parliamentary system of government, and the bureaucracy forms an inseparable part of the executive branch of the Government and provides stability and objectivity to the administration.
  • Unlike other services, once a candidate is selected to the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) or the Indian Foreign Service (IFS), the officer can serve at the Centre or the State cadres.
  • An IAS Officer is given the administrative command of the complete revenue administration in the district as District Collector after 4 years of services. An IFS Officer represents the Government of India at the international level in bilateral and multilateral negotiations.
  • At several levels of administration, IAS Officers play significant roles like conducting free, rational and smooth elections in India under the guidelines of Election commission of India and states, which is an autonomous constitutional authority.

If you aspire to serve your country by being part of the prestigious civil services, what are you waiting for? Become a part of BYJU’S family and take your IAS preparation into high-octane mode!
