  1. Its very informative. Thanks

  2. The rank of Joint Secretary, GOI is equivalent to rank and pay (SAG) scale of Major General rank in Army/Air Force/Navy.

    An officer in armed forces take almost 33 years to get to this rank. Officers in Group A civil services namely Central Secretariat Service, IES, ISS, IRS, IDAS and others take almost 27 to 28 years of service to get promoted. Some of the Group A take even 33 to 34 years of service to get promoted to this rank and scale.

    How is it that only IAS officers are promoted to JS, GOI (SAG) scale only after 19 to 22 years of service?

    1. They are the best selected through an open exam.

  3. No, because they control the system and discriminate against the others.

  4. They discriminate in their own favour. Long live discrimination.
