Indian Engineering Services Abbreviated as IES are the Civil Services that meet the Technical and Managerial Functions of the Government of India. Like most Countries, the Government of India Recruits its Civil Servants and Officials on the basis of Merit, the Middle Level Management Positions in the Bureaucracy are filled through Competitive Exams. Large number of Candidates take these Exams, competing for limited Posts. IES Officers are selected by the Union Government on the Recommendations made by the Union Public Service Commission(UPSC).


IES remains the most sought after Career for the Engineering Graduates in India.


IES is therefore, considered as the toughest Exam in India due to less number of Posts having a selection ratio of 0.00275 and its Technical Nature. Most toppers of this exam are graduates of institutes like the Indian Institutes of Technology and Indian Instiutes of Science. Because of this difficult selection procedure, IES officers carry high respect and stature in society and are able to manage activities in diverse areas. Government spending comprises more than 15 percent of India's GDP and given the extent of tasks and functions managed by the public sector, this extends to a fairly broad segment of the economy covering the railways, roads, defense, public works, power, telecommunications, etc. All appointments to the Group A Services are made by the President of India.


Any one can never make a comparison of Government Service with anything. Where ever the question about Indian Engineering Services, actually these have very high position. Here, you play a role in a making a plan and executing it not for money, for any person but your beloved country and their people. No matter how much you get in private sector. So in this way, You can play very important role in India’s development and making its Future Bright.


Like Civil Servants in India, the Engineers recruited through Indian Engineering Services get very high honors in government and society. At present government is spending more than 15 percent of India's GDP in Engineering. 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.

Keeping in mind the above requirements as the criteria of selection, we have been continuously striving to improve our system of designing the modules in such a manner that it would bring out the best in our enrolled candidates so that he could compete successfully in the IES Examinations. Furthermore, we seek indepth review from those of our personal friends who are eminent Personalities and customise our content accordingly.This is why we suggest that our modules are engineered by specialists and run by the Professionals. It would not be out of context to point out that the main handicap of many IES aspirants is in attempting the General Ability examination as they are quite sound in their conventional papers.


Please Note that We Only Provide Modules related to General Ability Examination (General Studies and General English) & no reading material for the conventional Papers will be provided by us.
