    Dear Guest,

    Firstly, you are allowed to write the IAS Exam in Tamil if that is your preferred language. As for the second part of your query, regarding preparatory material in Tamil, I am sure that if you visit a local book store that specialize in books for competitive exams, you shall find IAS books in Tamil. Also, if possible, join an IAS coaching institute in your area that teaches in Tamil. However, also please note that you shall still have to clear an English Paper in the Mains that carries 300 marks.

    I hope you succeed and wish you all the best.

    hi
    yes you are allowed to give the IAS exam, even being from a tamil background. You can give your IAS exam in tamil also.
    For giving the IAS exam, you should be a graduate in any stream from a recognized indian university and your age should be in between 21-30 years of age.
    A relaxation of 3 and 5 years is given to the obc and sc/st category candidates rerspectivley.
    For more details you can go to the website
