A director level job only for entrepreneurial IAS

HERE is a job post for IAS officers in the rank of director of the Government of India with an experience in institution-building at some stage in their career. It’s a rare occasion that the government is actually giving an advertisement mentioning the entrepreneurial ability of an officer as a precondition to apply for a post. The government is looking for suitable candidates for filling up the post of deputy director (administration) in the project cell of the AIIMS-like Institution at Rishikesh under the ministry of health & family welfare in the pay scale of Rs 37,400-67,000 with a grade pay of Rs 8700 on deputation basis.
In a DoPT circular dated June 29, 2010, marked to all secretaries in Government of India, and chief secretaries of state, it was urged that “the post may be circulated amongst all the director level officers in the state governments on priority basis”. The tenure of deputation is for three years. The last date of receiving applications is August 11, 2010.

Aadhaar for a national authority
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is setting up as a statutory authority by the name of National Identification Authority of India, mainly to issue identification numbers (aadhaar numbers) to residents and providing means to authenticate aadhaar numbers. The proposed draft Bill (National Identification Authority of India Bill, 2010) is ready, and once the new Authority will be set up, it may open another window to many job seekers in corridor.

What a power dog!
In a bizarre case of two warring families of Panchkula over a pet dog, a 1991 batch Haryana cadre IAS has reportedly used his official letterhead to support one family, according to a report in Indian Express. The other family has now protested against the officer currently working as MD in a state PSU, for using his position to help the other family possessing the three-year-old black Labrador. Yes, every dog has its day!

  1. There are instances in which a government officer builds an organisation or develops a new policy right from the beginning. They are entrepreneurs in true sense of the term. Yet, unlike real entrepreneurs in private world, babu innovators are a secured lot! Their job, salary, parks etc. remain intact...
