Post when to give my step 1 (for an indian medical student) ?

i am a third year medical student from india.
i was thinking of giving my step 1 in mid of final year because that way i will be able to give step 2 in internship without any pressure. Also i have heard that having step 1 scores by your side helps you get your electives. So i thought its better to give steep 1 before going for electives.
one more query .....if i complete my step 1, 2 cs and ck both by july in my internship year..will i be able to apply for residency match ...in that year itself..?
will i have to wait for my internship to get over in january and apply in september ? ...that would result in me wasting a whole year..
please help
