Dear aspirant, as the IAS requires you to administer and execute policies, you are supposed to have some basic physical requirements like, sitting, standing, seeing, hearing/speaking, reading and writing, communication, manipulation by finger, pushing and pulling, lifting, kneeling and crouching and bending as it is given officially in its notification by UPSC itself.

                                               

We mentioned above all the physical requirements needed for the officers selected by the UPSC through CSE-Civil Services Exam. You might have known that IAS is the highest service among the around 24 such all India and group A and B central services and each post requires its own specific physical requirements. If we come to the IAS post, we invariably should have above mentioned physical requirements. Next, comes the Foreign service which demands you to have physical requirements like, sitting, standing, walking, seeing, reading and writing, communication, manipulation by finger and hearing/speaking. Now let’s see what IPS is supposed to require physically. The IPS is a police service and it demands essentially a fit and sound body to enable you to work in diverse outdoor situations. Thus it is only IPS which demands more specific physical requirements along with the above-mentioned requirements.

 Physical requirements to be eligible for being an IPS Officers (Male and Female)

 

 

                Height

 

           Chest

 

                      Eyesight

 

       Male

 

 165 cm (For ST -160 cm)

 [except SC/ OBC]

 

 Minimum 84 cm.  Expansion 5 cm

 

  6/6 or 6/9 distant vision for good eye

 

      Female

 

 150 cm (For  ST -145 cm)

 [except SC/ OBC]

 

 Minimum 79 cm  expansion 5 cm

 

 6/12 or 6/9 for worst eye. Near vision J  1 for good eye. J2 for worst eye

So above mentioned are the physical requirements for IAS/IFS/IPS and for other services we need to possess more or less those basic physical requirements as we mentioned initially. Such all physical and functional requirements get published in the official notification of the UPSC, i.e. www.upsc.gov.in.

You have asked if the candidates having a height below the 160 cm can appear for CSE-IAS exam then the answer is yes. You can of course appear in the exam whatever may be your height. There are restrictions and specific physical requirements only for Police and defense forces and not for the other posts like IAS/IFS/IRS where you only have to fulfill the basic physical requirements as we mentioned it earlier.

The IAS exam is becoming more challenging and you have to update yourself with relevant knowledge.
