Cadre Preferences for IAS/IPS & Service Preference

As the prelims result is out, I got a few queries regarding cadre preference. Now preference of cadres will vary from one aspirant to another as typically (& not all) one prefers his/her home state and neighboring states. Also the personality of an individual (comfort seeking, challenge seeking etc) will play an important role. I am putting here an indicative list of cadre preference (which I opted for during my attempt). Please please note that it is just indicative & a personal opinion. You are free to even follow it in reverse order!!!!!!

PREFERENCE ORDER FOR IAS
1. Rajasthan (Rajasthan being my home state & a very good cadre in general).
2. Haryana
3. Punjab
4. Madhya Pradesh
5. Uttar Pradesh (A good cadre with probably longest tenures for direct IAS/IPS as Collector/SP)
6. Gujarat
7. AGMUT
8. Maharashtra
9. Himachal Pradesh
10. Uttarakhand
11. Karnataka
12. Chhattisgarh
13. Bihar
14. Jharkhand
15. Orissa
16. Tamil Nadu
17. Andhra Pradesh
18. Assam-Meghalaya (A largely peaceful and good cadre)
19. Sikkim
20. J&K (Out of 22 districts only 4-5 districts have direct IAS/IPS posted as Collector/SP)
21. Kerala
22. West Bengal
23. Manipur-Tripura
24. Nagaland

PREFERENCE ORDER FOR IPS
1. Rajasthan (Rajasthan being my home state & a very good cadre in general).
2. AGMUT
3. Haryana
4. Madhya Pradesh
5. Uttar Pradesh (A good cadre with probably longest tenures for direct IAS/IPS as Collector/SP)
6. Gujarat
7. Maharashtra
8. Punjab
9. Himachal Pradesh
10. Uttarakhand
11. Karnataka
12. Tamil Nadu
13. Andhra Pradesh
14. Chhattishgarh
15. Bihar
16. Jharkhand
17. Orissa
18. Assam-Meghalaya (A largely peaceful and good cadre)
19. Sikkim
20. J&K (Out of 22 districts only 4-5 districts have direct IAS/IPS posted as Collector/SP)
21. Kerala
22. West Bengal
23. Manipur-Tripura
24. Nagaland

AGMUT is a very good cadre for IPS. Again I went to mention that this list is indicative only. It is biased in favor of north Indian states as I am from Rajasthan. Please consult your peers, faculty and family members before finalizing the list. It is very important to fill in the preference carefully. There were quite a few cases of sorry stories in my batch because of improper preferences of cadre. Good Luck!!

An indicative list of Service Preference is mentioned below

1. IAS
2. IFS
3. IPS
4. IRS (IT)
5. IRS (C&CE)
6. Indian Account and Audit Service
7. IRTS
8. DANICS
9. DANIPS
10. IDES
11. IDAS
12. AFHQ
13. IRAS
14. Civil Accounts
15. ICLS
16 IRPS
17 RPF
18 IIS
19 IP&TAFS
20 Postal Service
21 Ordinance Facotry

In the list above the first five service (upto IRS customs) are preferred generally in the same order. IAAS & IRTS are preferred equally as 6th preference. Beyond 7th preference this list does not accurately reflect the conditions of service. I have very limited information regarding service below IRTS, therefore please consult someone who knows (preferably someone who is working in any of these services). Another way of gauging the preference order can be accessing the service allocation list (by rank) of previous years on the portal of Ministry of Personnel (DoPT). The link is:

Hope it helps. All the best!!

  2. There are quite a few who prefer IRS over all india service.....my wife being one of them. She could have got IPS as per her rank but preferred IRS. If you are sure, there should be no regrets. Though you would meet people who would say that you should have opted for IPS/IFS. In any case IRS is a very good service & probably the most comfortable (also metro life).

    I want to ask you a totally unrelated question to this topic, hope you could respond. I wanted to ask that if i'm appearing for cse '14 which is to be held in Dec next year, should the starting coverage for my newspaper have begun with Jan '13 itself ? I started an uninterrupted reading since start of this month(August). I'll be highly obliged if you could respond.

  5. hi,
    i have a query regarding the state-cadre preference part.
    do we have to write our preferences for preference of cadre statewise, for eg, in Assam IAS is 1, IPS is 2 and then in AP IAS is 2 IPS is 1?
    or do we have to write our preferences like if first preference is IAS in Maharashtra then in that respective column we have to write 1 and second is IPS in west bengal then in that we have to write 2 and so on?
    or do we have to indicate our preferences for IAS state-wise like rajashthan 1, w.b2, up 3 and so on and then for IPS column 1 for say w.b, 2 for u.p etc
    please help as the time is less..

  6. Hi Sir,

    I have 2 queries regarding medical test, please help:-

    1. In which services a color blind person is ineligible ?
    2. Suppose if I mark IPS as my 3rd pref. & in future don't get selected for my 1st & 2nd pref, also in medical they reject me for IPS so then I will be given my 4th pref or I will be completely out.

    Thanks in advance
