UPSC Indian Engineering Services (IES) Examination



Indian Engineering Services (IES) are the technical services that meet the technical and managerial functions of the government of India. Government spending comprises more than 15 percent of India's GDP. Given the extent of tasks and functions managed by the public sector this extends to a fairly broad segment of the economy covering the railroads, military, public works, power, telecommunications, etc.
Like in most countries, the government of India recruits its civil servants and officials on the basis of merit. The middle management positions in the bureaucracy are filled through competitive exams. Large number of people take these exams competing for limited seats.It is considered to be one of the toughest exams due to the limited number of seats available.
