  11. can people wid color blinness is eligible for color blindness

  12. can people wid color blindness is eligible for ias, ips

    1. yes they are allowed in IAS i don’t know about IPS

      1. not allowed in IPS

  13. Sir, it is mentioned in the Gazette that even for Non-technical services ,lower color perception is required.Can you please clarify it as i am complete color blind.
    I got selected in Engineering services but am unfit all services except Indian Railway Store Service due to color blindness. So, I want to be sure before starting preparations for civil services so that I will not have to go through disappointment that i am facing right now.

    1. Ram murti sir , I am complete color blind as you are ..I am preparing for IES ..what rank should I get to get into Indian Railway store .

    2. I am color blind as you are ..what rank must you get to get into Indian Railway store ..

      1. @Prannoy, it varies depending upon how many above your rank are suffering from color blindness or have filled IRSS. In ESE-2012, the last candidate to get IRSS from general category was Rank 26 whereas in ESE-2011,the guy having rank 56 was the last. So, if your are from general and think of worst case scenario, then you should have rank under 30.

        1. Sir my teeth is very bad and disorder and piles .any problem in ias,ips

      2. My front teeth is half broken is I am eligible for UPSE or not.


      1. sorry Rishi, if you are color blind, you can get only IRSS. nothing else

      2. sir what about knock knees,are they a disqualification too?

    4. Ram Murti Bhai

      I read your post today about the clarification required.I believe when you say total color blind, its level 4.I have the same level and reading through the Appendix was able to ascertain that IPS and other Technical services would not be available for me.But i was sure about IAS after drawing a parallel inference from other disability norms provided there.Then i looked into the fact if there is any relaxation for CB which is a negative so i concluded if there is no relaxation/reservation then this might not be such a big disability according to them,just something like having prescribed glasses.I started serious preparation based on the same inference but now i am in doubt as well.So have you been able to confirm this doubt or still searching for an answer.
      Mrunal, could you please chip in if you know the answer.

      1. in civil services except IPS and IRTS, you are eligible for everything as far as I above comments are regarding engineering services.
