Indian Engineering Services, abbreviated as IESare 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 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). A combined four-stage competitive examination (comprising six tests), called the Engineering Services Examination (ESE) is conducted by the UPSC for recruitment to the Indian Engineering Services.
IES remain the most sought-after careers for the engineering graduates in India. In the year 2010, a total of 157,649 candidates applied for 434 vacancies (includes all branches and cadres). In 2011, a total number of 693 candidates were recommended for appointments in these four lists include 317 General, 209 Other Backward Classes, 113 Scheduled Castes and 54 Scheduled Tribes (including 44 candidates belonging to Physically Handicapped category). ESE 2012 was conducted for the recruitment of candidates to as many as 560 posts, which also includes 47 vacancies available only for the PH (physically handicapped) category. ESE 2013 was conducted for the recruitment of candidates to as many as 763 posts, which also includes 19 vacancies available only for the PH (physically handicapped) category.
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 GDPand 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, manufacturing, inspection, supply, construction, public works, power, telecommunications, etc. All appointments to the Group A services are made by the President of India..

Interview

This is the fourth and final stage; candidates who qualify the written
exam are called for the interview. Interview carries 200 marks. Officially
called "Personality Test", the object of the interview is to assess the
personal suitability of the candidate for a career in public service by a
Board of competent and unbiased observers. The test is intended to
judge the mental caliber of a candidate. In broad terms this is really an assessment of not only his intellectual qualities but also social traits
and his interest in current affairs. Some of the qualities to be judged
are mental alertness, critical powers of assimilation, clear and logical
exposition, balance of judgement, variety and depth of interest, ability
for social cohesion and leadership, intellectual and moral integrity. The technique of the interview is not that of a strict cross-examination
but of a natural, though directed and purposive conversation which is
intended to reveal the mental qualities of the candidate. The interview test is not intended to be a test either of the specialized
or general knowledge of the candidates which has been already tested
through their written papers. Candidates are expected to have taken an
intelligent interest not only in their special subjects of academic study
but also in the events which are happening around them both within
and outside their own state or country as well as in modern currents of thought and in new discoveries which should rouse the curiosity of well
educated youth. These four stages ensure that the candidates selected, are best suited
to handle the responsibilities which will be entrusted to them. The
selected candidates then undergo training at the academies / institutes
of their respective cadres that makes them acquainted with the area of
work, the cadre / service is engaged in.
