On what basis, candidates are allocated services?

After going through the list, some of the aspirants might wonder, how come a candidate in the top 10 list has been allocated IFS, instead of IAS and a candidate in the middle of the list i.e. in 300s or 400s has been allocated IAS?

Service allocation is not solely dependent upon the marks obtained in the examination, there are many other factors that play a deciding role in the allocation process, like:

  • Order of preference filled by candidates in DAF.
  • Category of the Candidate i.e. general, OBC, SC or ST etc.
  • Availability of vacancy in the candidate’s category.
  • Findings of the Medical Board/Appellate Board with respect to the candidate
