In order to become an IAS officer, you need to pursue from India only,

The direct recruitment of a candidate into IAS is by the Civil Service Exam
conducted by Union Public Service Commission. However, recruitment into IAS
is also done by appointment by selection through powers conferred by
section 3 of the All India Services Act of 1951 (61 of 1951) and in
pursuance of sub-rule (2) of rule 8 of the Indian Administrative Service
(Recruitment) Rules of 1954 and in super session of the Indian
Administrative Service (Appointment by Selection) Regulations of 1956.

The examination is conducted by the Union Public Service
It has three stages(preliminary, mains and interview) and is considered to
be extremely challenging. Recently the preliminary exam pattern has
changed. There used to be 23 optional subjects along with a general studies
paper. Now there will be no optional subjects in the preliminary
examination. Instead there will be a second paper which will be common for
all candidates(CSAT). It covers aptitude, general mathematics,
comprehensive English, social studies etc.

Entry into the IAS is considered very difficult. Almost all of the
applicants rank IAS as their top choice because of the high prestige and
diversity of career it offers.
