Plan And Strategy For Indian Engineering Services

(A Path of Glorious Future)

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.
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.
Government of India recruits its coveted Engineers through competitive exams held each year by Union Public Service Commission. For this, a combined competitive examination is conducted by the UPSC.

The test is conducted in June every year at centres across India, namely: Agartala, Ahmedabad, Aizwal, Allahabad, Bangalore, Bareilly, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Chennai, Cuttack, Delhi, Dharwar, Dispur (Guwahati), Gangtok, Hyderabad, Imphal, Itanagar, Jaipur, Jammu, Jorhat, Kochi, Kohima, Kolkata, Lucknow, Madurai, Mumbai, Nagpur, Panaji (Goa), Patna, Port Blair, Raipur, Sambalpur, Shillong, Simla, Srinagar,
Thiruvananthapuram, Tirupati, Udaipur,Ranchi
(Jharkhand) and Vishakapatnam.
There are two parts of Indian Engineering Services written exam, Objective Papers of 600 marks and Conventional Papers of 400 marks ie total 1000 marks.

Beside it there is personality test of 200 marks. IES exam total carries 1200 marks. Objective Papers consist of three papers each carrying 200 marks of two hour duration. Here first paper is of General Ability Test divided in two parts-General English and General Studies and last two papers are from your chosen Engineering subjects.

Part two of exam is consist of two Conventional Papers of each 200 marks are from Engineering subjects. Here I am telling about General Studies, which is very important, because without qualifying in this paper, your other papers will not be evaluated and your all efforts will go in waste. So be careful and prepare this paper systematically. I am giving details about this paper and related study materials.
General Ability Test:
UPSC has divided General Ability Test in two parts- Part A is General English and Part B is General Studies. Test of both subjects held in one session of two hours and carries 200 marks. General Ability Test is part of Objective Papers.

The Objective Type papers, which carries 600 marks are very important, because these are evaluated first and evaluation of the Conventional Type papers contained in Section-II of the Plan of Examination will be done only of those candidates who obtain the minimum qualifying marks in Objective types papers, as fixed by the Commission. So candidate must give importance to General Ability Test. They have often face difficulties in this paper, because their background is very much different. I think a good strategy is important for this.
About General English: The question paper in General English will be designed to test the candidate’s understanding of English and workmanlike use of words.

About General Studies: The paper in General Studies will include knowledge of current events and of such matters as of everyday observation and experience in their scientific aspects as may be expected of an educated person. The paper will also include questions on History of India and Geography of a nature which candidates should be able to answer without special study.
Instructions And Details of UPSC About IES
The examination shall be conducted according to the following plan: Part I of IES Examination Written examination will comprise two sections:-Section I consisting only of objective types of questions and Section II of conventional papers. Both Sections will cover the entire syllabus of the relevant engineering disciplines viz. Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering. The standard and syllabi prescribed for these papers are given in Schedule to the UPSC website.

Conventional papers must be answered in English. Question papers will be set in English only.
Candidates must write the papers in their own hand. In no circumstances will they be allowed the help of a scribe to write the answers for them.

Marks will not be allotted for mere superficial knowledge.

Deduction up to 5 per cent of the maximum marks for the written papers will be made for illegible handwriting.
Credit will be given for orderly, effective and exact expression combined with due economy of words in the conventional papers of the examination.In the question papers, wherever required, SI units will be used.
NOTE:- Candidates will be supplied with standard  tables/charts  in SI units  in the Examination hall for reference purpose, wherever considered necessary.
Candidates are permitted to bring and use battery operated pocket calculators for conventional (essay) type papers only. Loaning or inter-changing of calculators in the Examination hall is not permitted.

It is also important to note that candidates are not permitted to use calculators for answering objective type paper (Test book lets). They should not, therefore, bring the same inside the Examination Hall.

The standard of paper in General Ability Test will be such as may be expected of a Engineering/Science Graduate. The standard of papers in other subjects will approximately be that of an Engineering Degree Examination of an Indian University. There will be no practical examination in any of the subjects.
