Question IAS--Is it worth pursuing it in the new era of MBA and CA?? - May 14th, 2008

Just survey your lane and you will come to know the no. of students pursuing MBA/CA or have done their MBA from various B-schools but hardly we find a student pursuing for IAS.

So is it that IAS has almost lost its value as a most prestigious degree which a century ago was considered as....

Kindly pour in your views.....

I would IAS is still worth pursuing.It is still considered to be one of the toughest exams and only nuts can crack it.IAS gives an insight into the administration of a Govt.But in recent times,IAS has lost its shiness mainly due to the stratospherical salaries of MBAs.Moreover the failure rate in IAS was very high.You can pursue MBAs in lot of insti's in the country but nt so the case with IAS.But the benefits and allowances offered to the IAS are more than that offered for MBAs.The funky life-style,fast food culture are luring the youth towards MBA.Even take the case of undergraduation,ppl are still studying B.Sc & B.A (adding with sme specialisation) in this B.E-only tradition.I would conclude IAS is still worth pursuing but ppl are nt dng it

Agreed that IAS is one of the toughest exam to crack...but the point is once they become government officers they rarely do their duties in good faith or rather I should say the system doesnt allow them to perform their duties diligently......these babus obstruct, deny and sabotage each and everything that is in their hands...

honest officers are not allowed to work in the system and consequently their families face a lot of hardships....tht to being a top grade officer

and even the Magsasay award winner Arvind Kejriwal has quit his top grade job and he is not alone there are many others who did quit this job.

So I personally dont feel that IAS is still worth pursuing when you dont get to serve with utmost honesty and other thing which stands as the obstacle is our Indian bureaucracy.

Recheck the statistics

IAS is the most sought after degree when it comes to regions like UP, MP, etc.. Bihar being the most famous for it.

The son of a person in UP rather takes pride in becoming a IAS than a MBA.
The degree has its luster depending on the geographic locations.

How 2 BECOME IAS,IPS,IFS
here r d details for students who r willing 2 get in2 IAS,IPS,IFS



Civil Services Exam: The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) conducts the Civil Services Exam every year. The Civil Services Exam holds the key for entry into a number of prestigious jobs in the country including the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS).
IAS, IFS, and IPS are the top three services of Group A, Central Services. The other Group A services includes Indian Customs and Central Excise Service, Indian Revenue Service, and Indian Postal Service.
Civil Services Exam consists of preliminary exam (prelims), main exam (mains), and interview. The prelims are usually held in May /June. Mains are held in October/November. The exam is notified in December. Application forms can be obtained from designated post offices around the country and the exams are held in major cities.

A candidate is allowed to make four attempts. However, candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste can make any number of attempts. Other Backward Class candidates are allowed seven attempts.

Eligibility:
Nationality: For IAS and IPS, only Indian nationals are eligible. For other services, subjects of Nepal, Bhutan, Tibetan refugees, (who arrived in India before January 1, 1962), and persons of Indian origin, who migrated from specified countries, are eligible.
Age limit: Between 21-30 years as on August 1 of the year of exam. Relaxation of age limit is available to SC candidates and a few other specified categories
Education: A degree from a recognized University
Prelims: You have to clear the prelims to qualify for the mains. You got to write two papers in prelims: General Studies, and a subject chosen by the candidate from a specified list of 23 subjects. Both papers are in objective type and are of two-hours duration each. Optional subjects include Civil Engineering, Commerce, Geography, Medical Science, and Indian History.
Mains: Marks in the written exams and the interview will determine your ranking. Based on your ranking and preference, you will be allotted one of the Services.
Mains comprise nine papers in all.
I. English (300 points)
II.Any one of the languages included in the Eighth Schedule of the Indian Constitution. (300 points)
III.Essay (200 points)
IV & V. General Studies (300 points for each)
VI-IX. Two papers each from the two optional subjects chosen by the candidate each paper 300 points.
The interview carries 300 points.
How to prepare:
General knowledge books and IAS guidebooks are available in plenty in the market. Besides, there are also magazines that provide tips to IAS/IPS aspirants. You may have to watch Indian and international news channels, and read newspapers/ magazines that deal with politics, economics, and business to keep abreast of current affairs.
It would be a good idea to enroll in a good institute for professional guidance. Many institutes offer IAS coaching classes. But before enrolling, make sure to check the credibility of the institute. Get information about the institutes and choose one that has consistently produced IAS toppers.
You may also want to get together some serious aspirants and form study circles. You could hold discussions, and debates on burning topics to sharpen your analytical skills, and learn to present your thoughts and ideas in a coherent manner.
While preparing for Mains, you need to practice writing your answers, so that you could learn to present your answers in a coherent manner.

it all depends on the area of interest. if one has no interest to be a civil servant then IAS is of no use to him
