Should one join IAS for “powers” ?? Ankur (topper) of IAS answers this way

Well Ankur Gargh The Topper of IAS is really a very frank guy I must say . I has mailed him about my dilema and the following was his reply

“The ‘powers’ vested in an IAS officer should not be the yardstick which one should use to decide on the option of joining the services. Joining the services would certainly be very different from most other placements, as almost all the latter are jobs, whereas IAS is a career. You will have to take your own decisin based on your temprament, competence and interest in administrative issues.

Again, how one finds the ‘execution of powers’ would be a personal decision. For me, it has been an immensely satisfying experience till date. I could not imagine myself in any other job. Thats the reason why after 4 years of an IIT Degree and inspite of selection in all IIMs for an MBA degree, I chose to opt for the Civil Services. But then, its a personal decision and may vary from person to person.

To your question ‘is it worth it’ – my reply when answering for myself would be – yes, every penny of it. Would it be worth your while for you – I am not really the best person to comment.

PS: Ankur , Dude sorry for not asking ur permission to publish this. But this ll help many man …. So am publishing this

well its different perceptions for different individuals….some who have always sighted being an IAS as their only goal choose their subjects accordingly in their grad or post grad for that matter and go for it with all the grit.
and then there are few who like to play it on the safe side and have a back up like an M.B.A …M.B.B.S…BE…LLB…LLM…BTECH…MTECH ….and the list goes on for such professional degrees, which i guess again suits u accordingly ….as god forbid if u dont end up being a civil servant u can always rely on something else.
so i guess its individual discretion…buts it always works out well if u choose and know ur options well enough.

i m in 6th sem computer Engineering (B.E)….
i want to be a IAS Officer ……..
what is process i have to follow???
reply me as soon as possible….

  kamal wrote @

the one thing which i want to clear to every one that people who are totally dedicated towards ias can crack it no matter whats their qualification,

second is that some one say if u wanna ias then why u did b.tech , mba etc.
the answer is that when we enter in that type of courses our maturity level and decision power is not so well(may be) or we dont know what is ias n eligibility and aso other info about ias,

sometime v people are under preassure by our parents n v dont know what is right or wrong so v go there as our parents said.

so overall thing is that if u once decided that i wanna bcom ias then go over it with tan man n if someone offerd u millions of million refuse it n concentrate on ur goal bcz it is the last destination and also develop the passion n enthusiasm in urself that if i cant do it i cant live .it is my oxygen its my destination…….

so to all aspirants

best of luck:::::::::::::::::::::::::::
