Hello @Mona Rupchandani Welcome to CrazyEngineers! 😀

Students in their last year of engineering (B.E. or B.Tech final year) can definitely appear for the IES 2016 exam. This has been made explicitly clear by the test conducting authority.

Students who have completed graduation and hold a degree can apply as well.

Probably No.You will be eligible only for ESE 2017 if the present regulation remains in effect. If you go through the official notification for ESE 2015, you will find that
You need to be at least 21 years old and not more than 30 years old as on January 1 of the Exam year. If the present regulation continues to remain in effect You will be 10 days short of 21 years on January 1, 2016. Age relaxations do exist as per regulations that are clearly specified in the official notification of the Examination and its relevant details. However, this notification has not been released yet for the exam in 2016 and rules can change with time.

@Prayash Engineers (B.E./B.Tech) from any branch can apply to IES, provided they choose any one of these 4 basic streams. It might be the case that the jobs available after cracking IES ESE are more inclined to these 4 branches only. If you are a petroleum engineer, you can apply to Civil, Mechanical or Electrical depending on the kind of engineering service you want to join later. Check the syllabus for each branch and choose wisely. All the best.

@shubham bagul

ESE stands for Engineering Services Exam. This discussion is dedicated to that.
ESE is also callad as IES-ESE - where IES stands for Indian Engineering Services.

Another exam is IES/ISS
Here IES stands for Indian Economic Service and
ISS stands for Indian Statistical Service.

When you check the dates, always look for ESE for Engineering Services.

IES stands for Indian Engineering Services and
ESE stands for Engineering Services Examination.
So, it's fair to call it the IES ESE Exam.

However, UPSC also has an exam called IES = Indian Economical Services, which is completely different.

So, always choose ESE if you want to aim for engineering services.
