  3. The IIM degree was obtained post joining the service. Its not directly related to Finance or anything. He is in ADB or Ministry of Finance not because of his degrees but because he is an IAS officer. Other civil servants with similar educational quaifications or better ones will not even be considered. Thats the gameplan of IAS lobby for you.

  5. those talking about for degree are really frustrated dudes who were unable to crack upsc and are here only to remove their frustration.ias officers work is administration and not the research in particular field.they are there not to create but to implement policies given to them by government and minister of finance isnt necessarily a iim graduate,he is elected by prime minister.those ministers have lot of economists for advising them
