  1. It is a tragedy of government service that an IAS officer of 2000 batch is getting Joint Secretary while other services'officers of 1990 are still awaiting for JS empanelment.

    GOI should make a rule that only IAS,IPS and IFS will get Joint Secretary posts in government of India.

    It is really an unequal world. In India, only being an IAS matters.

  2. It is truth. Reason is staffing of DOPT by IAS officers.

    Jai Ho, IAS Ji!

  3. There has to be some system of parity in emapnelment for JS. Ok, keep IAS 2 years ahead; but keep it ahead only by 2 years and speed up empanelment in other services.

  5. What happened to the recruitment of NID directors? Is DOPT the cause of delay or is it still lying at PMO?

  6. IAS are actually very insecure about their capacities so they dominate by means of Dopt empanelment,they are scared of technocrats and professionals of equivalent field.Only one examination is their tenacity
