Apr 22 • Competition Sample Papers • 13614 Views • 6 Comments on IES Question Papers for Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering

IES Examination is conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service commission) every year for the recruitment in various engineering services or post in various Government Departments. Here, in this post we have tried to bring IES Question Papers for Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering. The recruitment mainly takes place for three categories they are Electrical Engineering and Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering , Mechanical Engineering  and  Civil Engineering. Large number candidate apply for this exam but only few are selected.  The selected candidates get a handsome pay along with several other incentives of Government jobs and job security.

The exam includes a common General Ability Paper for all branches. The exam consists of two parts
