Indian Information Service

The Indian Information Service (IIS) (Hindi: भारतीय सूचना सेवा) is the administrative civil service under Group A and Group B of the Central Civil Services of the executive branch of the Government of India.

Indian Information Service officers are the media managers of the Government of India. They act as a vital communication link between the Government and the people by way of disseminating information and communicating various Government policies and schemes to the public at large and also collecting and providing valuable feedback to the Government for policy formulation.

Most IIS officers work in various media units which are under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting such as DD News, All India Radio, Press Information Bureau, DAVP , etc. During their tenure in Press Information Bureau, they are posted with various Ministries as spokespersons to handle the Ministry's information and communication needs and help in policy formulation.

IIS officers are also posted as spokespersons to various constitutional bodies such as Comptroller and Auditor General of India, Election Commission of India and statutory bodies such as Central Bureau of Investigation. Besides postings all over India, an IIS officer also gets posted to a few foreign assignments under Prasar Bharati.


IIS Group-A officers are selected through two modes,

  1. Direct recruitment through the prestigious Civil Services Examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission for recruitment to the various Civil Services of the Government of India, including the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) among others.
  2. And also through promotion to IIS Group-A from the Senior Grade officers of IIS Group-B.
