It is a very good decision by you to take up B.Tech but be careful in choosing the engineering course. I would suggest you Mechanical Engineering is the best out of these because of following reasons :
1. Mechanical Engineering has a very wide job opening as mechanical engineers are found in almost all sections of engineering. A Mechanical Engineer is now found in all types of industries because of their very wide scope. A Mechanical Engineer can go to all jobs other than a Civil Engineering job.
2. When it comes to Civil Engineering you have got a job but the thing you cannot go for any other job than a civil engineering job.
3. Chemical Engineering may not be a good option as the job opening is less when compared to others, and also there are not so many chemical industries in India when compared to Mechanical Industries.
A Mechanical Engineer can work in Machine based industries, computer hardware and software industries, Petroleum Industries, Electronics Industries and Electrical Industries, Aircraft Industries and any other industry as they will require a mechanical engineer to design and maintain their machines for their improved production. It is a field that has never experienced a recession.

I think it is you who should decide the branch. Please don't think about their chances of getting the job and all these things.
If you have interest in your field then you will be succeeded in any field, no matter what is scope for specific branch.
I would like to advice you to sit and think which field would you like to work for like mad. Yes madness in one field will surely push you to the top of all these things.
As you mentioned that you want to be in civil services I would like to suggest you to complete your graduation in arts,science or commerce category. If you don't want to do engineering job as real then why are you wasting more money and time in this field. You will complete graduation in B.sc., B.com, B.A and it will be more helpful for your civil services exam.

I suggest there is no comparison in any specialization during Engineering Degree Course.
If you need to go for B.Tech, I suggest you to first think whether you have some special interest which you are always thinking or coming across to understand a lot from everybody. If you have, then please understand that, that is the right concerned area where you should go for Engineering.
If you do not have such things in your mind, then start thinking, since thought always give some good things which will be beneficial for you to decide the best for you.
Especially, I will suggest some good stream for Engineering with my opinion.
1. Mechanical Engineering
2. Production Engineering
3. Electrical Engineering
4. Electronics Engineering
5. Civil Engineering
I hope above answer will definitely help you to decide the best

If you have noticed that civil examination paper, then you will see that Mechanical as well as Civil Engineering options are there, there are no options for the Computer Engineering one and any other branch as well.
So this means it will be easy for the Civil and Mechanical one to crack the exams as they will not need to change the subjects also they will not have to opt for different subjects altogether.
There is no point in taking other branches when you wish to carry on for the Civil services.
As the concentration should be on the goal, why making it more complicated, but you should be very clear in your goals, there will be a time when some of your friends will be getting good IT jobs in their final year and the salary will be quite high, but this should not divert you from the main goal.

This something not an issue that which branch to choose. Issue is to get admission in some good colleges. Branch is something depends on you totally.
Means what do you feel about solving skills or drawings reading or software or hardware interest.
Every branch has its own meaning and something we can't define. For example suppose
Civil: Branch dealing with concrete, grades, IS codes, construction, long beam problems, drawings etc and many others
Mechanical: Machine, manufacturing process, machine design, Power plants, heat systems, automobile, cycles with numerical and drawings.
Electrical : very hard study required for this branch, syllabus is very heavy about electrical appliances with problems and circuit drawings
Computer and ECE : Both running almost parallely almost all semesters with programming and lots others.
Now this is what you have to decide that what you feel to understand easily.

My opinion is that mechanical is best when compared with civil and chemical. As far as mechanical is concerned you can survive even if haven't got selected by the companies. You can run your own shop.
Civil is next to mechanical in my opinion. chemical is not better when compared to civil and mechanical.

I think you shall go for mechanical branch. Its a branch of high demand today therefore it will be better if you go for that branch itself. As you are looking forward for civil services you should be more specific and systematic in your studies and should be well updated with the current happenings.

From the above options that are Mechanical, Civil and Chemical.
Out of these options I will strongly suggest you to take Mechanical as Mechanical is evergreen branch there would be so many job opportunities. I my self have done my B.tech with Mechanical and now doing my M.TECH in Mechanical. There are so many options after doing graduation with mechanical as specialization you can either go in Design, Manufacturing, Quality and research.
Jobs in Private Sectors
If you are having qualities and capabilities then I am sure you will get a good job. Your stream will not matter what you have learnt matters a lot. After completing Mechanical you can get jobs in private sectors like L&T, Honda, Maruti, Nestle, Sonalika, Bluestar, Samsung, Nokia and L.G
Below are the Government sector Jobs
Air India Limited
Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL)
Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited (BHEL)
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL)
Engineers India Limited (EIL)
Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL)
Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL)
Indian Oil Corporation Limited(IOCL)
Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL)
Oil India Limited (OIL)
Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC)
Steel Authority of India (SAIL)
Jobs in Banks
Engineers are in great demand everywhere and almost in all the sectors, we have also noticed lot of public sector banks are also recruiting them. Engineers prefer to join them simply for the reason as the bank jobs are thought of as one of the prestigious careers in our social value system.
Reserve Bank of India
State Bank of India
Union Bank of India
UCO Bank and others.
Other areas where engineers are in great demand are the Defence forces (Army, Navy and Air Force). These three sectors provide ample opportunities of growth. One either joins the Indian army to qualify for the rank of an officer or one opts for other ranks. Combined Defence Service exam is conducted by UPSC twice every year for recruitment to office cadre of the Army, Navy and Air force. Another major exam for engineers is Indian Engineering Services (IES), a combined competitive examination conducted by the Union Public Services Commission (UPSC) for recruitment to the Indian Engineering Services.

As you are interested to join one among mechanical, civil and chemical engg field, if you really want to move on with civil services after graduate, chemical is not a prescribed field. It doesn't mean it doesn't have any opportunities. There are some sectors which expect chemical engineers in civil services like agro based industries, fertilizer industries etc. But opportunities are not that broad.
Civil and Mech have got ample opportunities as per your future plans. If you get excelled in your field you can definitely earn more from there. If you are very much interested in automobiles and hardware mechanisms mech is really a good branch you can opt for.
You mentioned that you are interested in civil services after graduate. Both mech and civil have their own departments in the government section. So here you need not actually worry about future opportunities in these fields. Both the fields have got a very good scope in the future.
Finally what I would like to suggest is, first ask yourself what you really want to do in your life. No one lack in talent, but people lack in burning desire. Thats what stops them from reaching the heights. Make a choice with your own will and have a passion for it. Have a fantastic future ahead.

Mechanical and Civil are both common and core branches. These branches are preferred by a large number of students. Mechanical is said to be an evergreen branch. The syllabus is quiet tough when compared with other branches. A major benefit of this branch is this that you can get a job of all other branches except Civil. If you are interested in making of machines, designing them, automobiles etc then you should go for this branch.
If you are interested in making of bridges, roads, dams etc then you should go for Civil Engineering. You should be good at mathematics. Engineering Drawing is also a major subject of this branch. The major benefit of this branch is that if you are interested in government jobs then there are a large number of job opportunities available in this branch. You can also go for Indian Army through IES, UES etc.
Chemical branch is a very rare branch compared to others. It is good to do engineering in this branch if you are good in chemistry, ready to learn a large number of chemical equations. Further you should do it from a good institution.
You mentioned in your question that you also aim for civil services then you should not prefer Mechanical as it is a tough branch and almost a large portion of engineering students prefer Arts subjects for cracking civil services exam.
Choosing a branch totally depends on your interest. If you want to choose a branch then think that whether the work of the branch is going to interest you in future and going to make you satisfied or not?

For the preparation of Civil Services with Engineering subjects, you should choose your stream as per the difficulty level of syllabus and the competition you will face in your Civil Services Examination with that stream.
For the purpose of Civil Services examination, i will suggest you to opt Chemical Engineering. The major advantages of opting Chemical Engineering are:
1) The syllabus of Chemical Engineering is comparatively easy than other branches.
2) As there are very few Chemical Engineers in India, you will surely face a little competition in your Civil Services Exam.
3) Other than Civil Services Exam, you will have numerous opportunities in government sector with low competition.
4) You may even switch to IT sector if you want.
5) It will comparatively very easy to crack GATE examination and you will have the opportunities of higher education such as M.Tech from IISc Banglore or IIT's.
One more thing to be in mind is that Chemical Engineering is not highly related with Chemical Reactions. Just go through the syllabus of it and then decide.
I have many friends of Chemical Engineering in BARC, IOCL, NPCIL, IISc Banlore, IIT Bombay etc. So you must have an inspiration.
Good Luck for your future.

Bachelors degree in engineering is one of the highly rated professional course in the world. Students after 10+2 mainly opt for engineering due to the reputation this course provide them in the society. Opting for engineering is a wise move but students face trouble in joining streams. Mechanical and civil are the two core streams of engineering education and these two courses have got more colleges and seats compared to chemical. Mechanical engineering is one branch that opens the door for a student to make the career in the field of their choice. Mechanical engineers are needed in almost all sectors and the requirement of mechanical engineering graduates in job market is always high.
Civil engineers scope is limited as compared to mechanical. They find most of their jobs in construction sector. Although the need for civil engineering graduates are always out there mainly in towns/cities because lots of infrastructure jobs are found there.
Chemical engineers scope is very limited compared to other branches. Colleges offering this course is also limited. Chemical graduates find their place in chemical industries. Chemical factories in India is very limited and thats why remuneration in this sector is very good.
Engineering graduates have got the ability to solve the problems quickly and great aptitude that makes them rank high in civil service examination or any other competitive exam.
