I am not in India but I took a look at the role of an IAS Officer and there is extensive information online with regard to this career. Seems the process and path is pretty specific and there is no indication of a specific education track:

How to become an IAS officer?

Even though the exam to be undertaken is popularly known as IAS exam, it is officially called UPSC Civil Services Exam. The UPSC CSE consists of 3 stages – Prelims, Mains, and Interview. Getting into Indian Administrative Service is not easy considering the competition involved, but not impossible for a candidate with right attitude and approach.
