06:18 0




Civil Services offer an attractive and challenging career to the ambitious, the aspiring and the talented. Indian civil services paves the way for becoming an IAS, IPS or IFS officer
The Indian civil services is considered as one of the premier services which paves the way for becoming an IAS, IPS or IFS officer. Civil Services offer an attractive and challenging career to the ambitious, the aspiring and the talented. The wide variety of jobs within the fold of the Civil Services have relatively greater sphere of authority and power than any other services in India.

The services encompass all one can aspire for: prestige, job security, salary package, opportunity of foreign tour, job satisfaction, etc.  Civil servants in one way decide the fate of the nation as the implementation of all developmental and other government policy rest with them. If we talk of prestige and respect this is the most prestigious and respectful job of India as it is a job which provides an opportunity to satisfy personal ambition as well as indulge in social welfare. The selection as civil servants is rigorous and only a handful is selected out of hundreds and thousands of aspirants every year. There is diversity of work- a wide variety of work is associated with civil services, like maintenance of law and order, developmental work, disaster management, representing India on international forum, administration, upliftment and empowerment of marginalised sections of society etc. 
 
There is a deep sense of job security as a civil servant cannot be fired easily. Once selected, a civil servant works till the age of 60 and is possible for him to get an extension. As far as salary package is concerned, the 6th pay commission has brought the salaries of the Civil Servants at par with those in the corporate sector. The facilities and amenities provided to an officer are excellent. A remarkable thing about civil services is that it provides opportunity to contribute effectively in the decision making process of country. The talented ones also get to represent the nation at world forums. A person who wants to participate closely in the process of building society and wants to bring about positive social change should definitely try to crack the IAS examination. 

The aspirants of Civil Services favour the top three services namely- IAS, IPS and IFS as these services hold within their fold the vast scope to use bestowed power to bring about socialtal development. Also, these services are much sought after as they are symbols of great power, social recognition and affluence.

IAS (Indian Administrative Services)
IAS officers are more popularly known as the policy makers & executors. Also, they are authorized to sign agreements on behalf of government., When they act at district level, they are known as district magistrates/collectors and are responsible for each and every affair of the district be it development, law and order, disaster management or anything else. At the secretariat level they perform as deputy secretary, joint secretary, secretary, principal secretary, cabinet secretary etc. IAS officers consider it to be a privilege to work as a district magistrate & principle secretaries to the Prime Minister or Chief Ministers of different states.

IPS (Indian Police Service)
A position which all IPS officer crave for is that of a superintendent of police, who are responsible for public safety and security, law and order, crime prevention & detention, traffic control etc. The IPS officers also offer their services to central police organizations like- CBI, CRPF, BSF etc.

IFS (Indian Foreign Service)

IFS deal with the external affairs that include diplomacy, trade and cultural relations. They are involved in the framing and implementation of foreign policy. The top most post given to an IFS officer is that of Ambassadors.

The analysis of the three top Civil Services show why a career in the Indian Civil Services is a rage among those who aspire to make their voices heard.
