Your age will be "30 years 2 months 28 days" on 1st August 2017. So you will not be eligible if you are from general category. Other castes have some waivers on age criteria of 21-30 years for eligibility. Please check official website for the same.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

It seems, UPSC has updated it to the following -

A candidate for this examination must have attained the age of 21 years and must not have attained the age of 30 years on the 1st January, 2016 i.e., he/she must have been born not earlier than 2nd January, 1986 and not later than 1st January, 1995. (b) The upper age‐limit of 30 years will be relaxable upto 35 years in the case of Government servants of the following categories, if they are employed in a Department/ Office under the control of any of the authorities mentioned in column 1 below and apply for admission to the examination for all or any of the Service(s)/Post(s) mentioned in column 2, for which they are otherwise eligible.

That's something that we will only know when the official notification for IES 2017 arrives. It should come by during December 2016 or January 2017.

It's really hard to tell a date, but expect it somewhere around May. The official notification is only released in December 2016, so that's when we will know for real.
No point guessing.
