I guess either you did not ready the answer carefully or couldn't get the point he was trying to prove...
In short IAS is good provided you can tackle some of the most unholy situations and politicians tyranny.
I read carefully but
I couldn't get what he was trying to prove.
about politicians, well they do not have a permanent tenure like IAS.
he was talking about a lavish lifestyle of other IITians but I don't think they get a bungalow like IAS at such minimal rate.perks cannot be compared. respect is always associated to the officers.service to nation, not everyone gets a chance. Location could be a problem but not for all.home: outsiders ratio is 1:2,so fair chance of being in your home state. job security is a big difference. corporate world fires employees at will.
every job has its challenges.IAS have even more because of their kind of work.

UPSC dispute raised in parliament. Students demand for immediate reforms after UPSC made admit cards available for 24 August. Government to take action after receiving report from 3 members committee. tough for aspirants as exam will be held in short time and still the situation is not clear.

INDIAN FOREIGN SERVICE

selected candidate sent to the
Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of
Administration (LBSNAA) in Mussorie for training
for a period of three months where he/she is
known as Foreign Service Probationer/ Officer
Trainee.
After completing the three months training, which
involves training in multiple disciplines including a
foreign language, horse riding and trekking in high
Himalayas, a Foreign Service Probationer moves
to the Foreign Service Institute located in New
Delhi for further training.
At the Foreign Service Institute, which is located
on Baba Gangnath Marg near Jawaharlal
University (JNU) campus, a Foreign Service
Probationer undergoes training for a year which
involves International Relations, Indian Foreign
Service Pay, Leave and Compensatory Allowances
(IFS-PLCA) Rules, Foreign Trade, functioning of
Indian missions in neighbouring South Asian
countries, attachments with the Army, Navy and
the Air Force, attachment with the district and the
state administration and attachment with the
corporate sector.
After the end of the training with the Foreign
Service Institute a Foreign Service Probationer is
attached with a Division of the Ministry of
External Affairs for a period of six months for on-
the-job training. After completing on-the -job
training a probationer is allocated a Compulsory
Foreign Language (CFL) such as Arabic, Chinese,
French, German, Russian, Spanish or others as
deemed fit and the one is posted in an Indian
mission as a Third Secretary (Language Trainee)
where the probationer learns the allocated foreign
language.
After successful completion of the foreign
language learning process, a proficiency test is
administered by the School of Foreign Languages
(SFL), Ministry of Defence, India. Only after
successfully passing the proficiency test in a
given foreign language, a Foreign Service
Probationer is confirmed in the Indian Foreign
Service. Usually it takes almost 3 years to
become an Indian Foreign Service officer from the
date of joining the Indian Foreign Service as a
Probationer at the Lal Bahadur Shastri National
Academy of Administration in Mussorie.
After being confirmed in the Indian Foreign
Service, an Indian Foreign Service Officer is
posted as a Second Secretary in one of the wings
(Political, Economic or Commerce, Consular,
Administrative or Cultural) at an Indian Embassy
or as Consul at an Indian Consulate for a period
of 3 years. During this period the officer learns
political, economic, commercial, cultural, consular
or administrative works from his senior
colleagues at the Embassy or the Consulate.
An IFS officer can take his/her parents abroad but
the Government provides for medical facilities of
only dependent parents- who have no body else
to look after them and have abysmally low

A Second Secretary in an Indian mission gets a
decent accommodation of 110 sq meters but has
to purchase his/her own car. He/She gets foreign allowance (which increases with promotion) and
medical facilities besides government provided
accommodation. Government provides for
education fees for the children(up to 2 children
only) above five years of age. Government also
provides Representational Grant (RG) to entertain
the guests.
An average day of a Second Secretary starts at 9
a.m in the morning with driving to the office,
reading e-mails/fax-messages, making phone
calls, writing notes, replying letters, briefing senior
officers, following up with the Ministry of External
Affairs Headquarters, attending meetings and
occasionally attending a reception hosted on the
occasion of national day or welcome/farewell of a
diplomat by another Embassy, driving back home,
spending 2-3 hours with the family and watching
news of the day before going to the bed.
After completing 3 years at an Indian Embassy or
Consulate, an IFS officer is transferred to another
Embassy or Consulate or to the MEA
headquarters in New Delhi. In New Delhi the
officer joins as Under Secretary and looks after a
particular desk in a Division of the Ministry for the
next 3 years. The average day of an Under
Secretary is same as an average day of a Second
Secretary mentioned above except he/she has to
look after several Indian Embassies and
Consulates, has to respond to their queries, follow
up with them and speak to several people during
an average working day. Generally he/she has to
work extra hours beyond the office hours (i.e. 9
a.m. to 5:30 p.m. five days a week) and over the
weekends to clear the extra workload.
After completion of 9 years in the service from the
date of joining the Indian Foreign Service
(including probation period), an IFS officer gets
automatically promoted to the rank of Deputy
Secretary. After spending approximately three
years in New Delhi, an IFS officer is posted
abroad for the next three years at one of the 163
Indian Missions/Posts abroad which are
categorized into A*, A, B, C and C* categories
depending on the hardship and standard of living.
For example London, New York, Canberra are the
places rated as A*, Paris, Rome etc. are
categorized as A, Moscow, Cairo etc. are
categorized as B, while places like Islamabad,
Kathmandu, Khartoum are categorized as C*.
An IFS officer has to choose three places of his
choice out of the number of vacant posts which
are circulated. If he/she is lucky then he/she can
get one of the three places of his/her choice.
Foreign postings are decided by the Foreign
Service Board which is headed by the Foreign
Secretary.
After completing his/her tenure in a given
Mission/Post, the officer is again posted for three
years to another Indian Mission/Post located in
another country. An officer is provided for by the
MEA for the transport of his/her baggage, car and
other belongings from one country to another by
air, land or sea.
The promotion chain in the Indian Foreign Service
is as following -
While abroad at an Indian Mission/Post-
Third Secretary(Language Trainee); Second
Secretary: First Secretary; Counsellor;
Minister; Ambassador
While in India at MEA Headquarters-
Attache; Under Secretary; Deputy Secretary;
Director; Joint Secretary; Additional Secretary;
Secretary
On average it takes 9 years of service to get to
the rank of Deputy Secretary, 13 years of service
to become a Director and 16 years of service to
get to the rank of Joint Secretary. Promotions up
to the Director/Counsellor rank are automatic and
time bound while promotion to the next level i.e.
Joint Secretary is based on the Confidential
Annual Performance Appraisal Reports (CAPAR) of
the last ten years. Generally a Joint Secretary
becomes an Ambassador abroad (in recent times
Director rank officers have also been given
Ambassadorial assignments) and the Head of a
Division at the MEA Headquarters in New Delhi.
CAPARs are written by the reporting officer and
reviewed by a higher ranking officer than the
reporting officer. An officer has a right to appeal
to the Ministry if he/she does not agree with the
report given by the reporting or reviewing officer.
A Foreign Service officer can serve as a Regional
Passport Officer(RPO) or can go on deputations
to the Ministry of Defence, Prime Minister's Office,
Ministry of Commerce, Department of Space or
the United Nations, World Bank etc.

INTERVIEW

Question: What were the basic mantras of
your success?
Venkat: Consistency, hard work, self-belief
and faith in the Almighty.
Question: When did you start the preparation
for the IAS Examination? When should one
ideally begin thinking about preparing for this
exam?
Venkat: I started preparing one and a half
year prior to the prelims. I think one should
start at least one year prior to the prelims
examination.
• Question: How did you start preparation for
the IAS examination?
Venkat: I started the preparation from NCERT
books which are very important to build the
basic foundations.
• Question: What were your optionals? What
was the basis of selecting these optionals?
Venkat: My optionals were the History and the
Geography. History is very scoring subject
now a days. It is very analytical and
interesting as well. I have done P.G. in
Geography. These two subjects constitute a
major part of G.S. and this was another
important reason for selecting them.
• Question: Tell us something about
preparation of essay paper.
Venkat: Reading extensively, especially
editorials, analysing the issues, co-relating the
issues and forming opinions about the issues
are very important. The reading of Yojana and
Kurukshetra are also helpful.
• Question: How much time did you devote for
this exam?
Venkat: The preparation is integrated and a
continuous process. It is difficult to set any
specific time limit. I worked on the
preparation slowly ever since my graduation
days.
• Question: Which is the most difficult part of
this examination and why? What was your
strategy to tackle this difficult part?
Venkat: I think to begin and prepare for
Prelims is a bit tough for students, as
candidates are new to the process of
examination, and new to the pressure, from
their-on one gets into the skin of exam.
• Question: Did you integrate your Prelims and
Mains or was it separate?
Venkat: Integrated approach is required till
the interview.
• Question: Did you prepare notes? How
helpful are the notes? What is your advice on
notes-making?
Venkat: Preparing notes for self-revision are
very important as they help you to revise
quickly at the last time. I think preparing
notes according to self-requirement and
comfort are important rather than going by
what people say.
• Question: What should be the best strategy
to tackle negative marking in Prelims
examination?
Venkat: Attempt optimum numbers of
questions, minimize the guess and doubtful
one’s. 55% positive is enough to crack any
national level negative marking based
examination.
• Question: How did you prepare for
interview?
Venkat: Interview preparation cannot start
and does not start after the Mains result, it
has to be integrated with the Prelims and
Mains preparation, one should realise that it is
not a mere interview but a personality test.
• Question: What is your advice to the freshers
who are going to appear in this exam?
Venkat: Think a thousand times before taking
a decision to appear for exam, but after
starting the preparation, do not re-think even
once. Make the aim and work towards it
consistently. You are the captain of your ship;
you are Master of your soul.
• Question: What is your advice to the
candidates who have failed in this exam?
Venkat: It is a part of exam, don’t be
disheartened, remember, failure teaches more
to a person, take it as a part and take a wow
to rise like a phoenix.

IAS topper, Ira Singhal

She has a habit of not forgetting anything taught in a class, and would study only ten hours before her examinations till completing her graduation in Engineering from Delhi. She is also an expert in cooking and astrology. Here are the highlights of Ira Singhal's interview, the woman who topped the Union Public Services Commission civil services exam this year.
 
I never considered my deformity to be a challenge for me. It all depends on how big you consider it to be a problem.
I donated all my savings to the Uttarkashi earthquake relief fund. I was in class III and about eight years old in 1991.
I wanted to become a doctor, but my father did not let me take up Biology to study medicine due to physical constraints.
I qualified in 2010, 2011 and 2013 for the civil services exams, I should have been given a service but the current government criteria didn't allow me to get a service except in Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and Indian Foreign Service (IFS).
I felt that with my background as an MBA, I should go for IFS.
I can speak Spanish and I have taught it also for some time, a bit of French and I am learning Italian, Portuguese and German.
I gave up last year when I got through Indian Revenue Service (IRS), as I was getting this service for the past three times. But then a friend of mine really insisted that I should not give up and try for IAS.
Preparation for civil services examination is all about smart study, more observation and analysis that actually gathering stuff and reading from 5,000 sources.
People who look at clearing civil services as a matter of life and death need to move beyond it. It will be tough for them to clear it if they think like that. There is life beyond these examinations.
My favourite author is Victoria Holt. These days I'm trying to read Agatha Christie. It is tougher to read course books, but I love reading other books.
Students who think that they are not good at Mathematics, it is mostly because of your teacher. It is the only subject where only teachers matter.
I realized that when I secured 99.6% in Mathematics in my CAT examination. It is the only subject where what you get what you expect.
We are normally not paying attention to our studies. Our attention span is not more than three minutes. When we sit for more time, we are actually fooling ourselves into believing that we are studying.
My single aim to help society and I'm not after power, money or success. I don't lie to myself.
IRS has little option of being in touch with people. You need a lot of work to be able to pick up minute details. It's quite a James Bond type of work.
We cannot handle everything be being aggressive. We need to be tactful and understand both points of view.
I'm not scared that I will keep fighting if I am wrong, and I will not stop if I'm correct. I can live with multiple transfers.
We should explore everything. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't do anything that will harm you or society and I don't lie. I do it because of my conviction, and not for anyone else's approval.
I have roamed around the streets late night in Delhi many times at 4am with my friends. It is a wrong perception that Delhi is unsafe.
