How can you get into IPS ?

The Indian Police Service (IPS) is one of the three major All India Services established under the Constitution of India. The elite Indian Police Service officers are high ranked personnel who offer leadership to Police forces both at the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and in the State police machinery.

Being an All India Service, IPS officers in India carry a lot of responsibilities. The Police Division under Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is responsible for policy decisions and cadre management such as cadre structure, recruitment, training, cadre allocation, empanelment, deputation, confirmation, pay and allowances, disciplinary matters of IPS Officers.

Indian Police Service (IPS) Exam
IPS (Indian Police Service) exam has two recruitment modes:

Civil Services Examination (CSE) conducted by the Union Public Service Commission.
Promotion of State Police Service Officers.
For a short period, for the recruitment of IPS, there was the provision of a Limited Competitive Examination (LCE). However, in 2018, to scrap this mode of recruitment of Indian Police Service officers, the Supreme Court of India upheld the Centre’s decision.

UPSC Civil Services Exam conducted every year for which almost 5-8 lakh aspirants appear, candidates who take the exam will be appointed as Indian Police Service (IPS) depending upon the rank they score in the exam, their hard work and self-determination.
