IS IT WORTH TO JOIN SDM AFTER 8YRS IN PSU.

Give some insight

Comments

  • PSU only if you can get into board of directors or cmd which is a tough case and least probable thing that can happen.....otherwise sdm is always better....
    wind power α v^3. That's how speed matters to generate power required to drive upsc exam.
  • Any idea how much time / effort it would take to get to that position @Wind_Energy
    To be, or not to be, that is the question...
  • Any idea how much time / effort it would take to get to that position @Wind_Energy

    that depends on the PSU...first thing one should be promoted in time in every promotion to reach the top, second thing one should develop connections with upper ones...third is develop some credentials apart from being the usual bootlicker...may be 25 years of service or more.....
    its late though...but there are some post retirement benefits too...

  • In UP now it takes around 20 years to be promoted to IAS but it is said that sdm of UP is better than dm of most other states...

    bhai they first get posting as attachment in district headquarters as SDM for few months. Then after 2-3 months, they go for foundation course at UPAAM Lucknow. They lead the tehsils (sub division-as it is called in UP) as SDM. Its a highly prestigious service which is placed at a higher preference by the candidates (I wrote this line as it seems you want to know how the service is). The promotion hierarchy is SDM--ADM--CDO--DM--Commissioner.

  • @vasu sir, is there any possibility of a 1000 marks exam,(for promotion to IAS/DM ,as was proposed a few yrs ago ) to be conducted in the near future,particulary with the change of power in U.P.


    Also ,what is the usual time to get promoted to Cdo ,under the existing rules ?

    What percentage of a particular batch of up-sdm ,actually retire as dm?

    If you enter in service by 28/29 of age..you may retire as Commissioner. The possibility of any such exam as you mentioned is very feeble unless it is implemented by some Central executive order for entire country as state wont do that on its own. Generally, it takes 20 odd years to become an IAS in UP at present though there are chances of better and faster promotions in future.

  • Thanks for the reply sir. HOPE you don't need to go throuh this long process and get it directly .gud luck.
  • @vasu @faridbaba can u please tell how DM /DC od other states worse than SDM of UP. i think DM is higher and more powerful post in any state.

    In Sikkim there are 4 DM's for 4 districts and the population is 5 lakhs...and whole district of allahabad(not city but whole district) has population of 30 lakhs and only 5 SDM's so numerically you are in charge of more people.....
    Another thing is that you are in your own state and you ll be close to your family...so though PCS is a state service but the exposure,authority etc. will be much more..

  • @vasu comparing that way will mean DM of lucknow is more powerful than CM of sikkim or goa or any union territory.

    second , dont just comapre with sikkim there are other nearly equally populous to UP like maharashtra bihar westbengal etc.

    Bhai tag to sahi admi ko karo.
    Bhai ye UP HAI, yahan ki raajniti agar desh ko sabse zyada pradhan mantri de sakti hai,
    To yahan ka Sdm bhee lambi race ka ghoda sabit ho sakta hai.

    eg:baba hardev singh,fought against Mr. soft

    In elections.har gaya,baat alag hai,par kitne Dm Bhee ticket patey hain apne jeevan mein
    Aur baba ka service record ruaab wala tha

    Ps:and i m not an aaptard



    @phoenixdesires
  • Overall the moral is,
    If you are up domicile,dont take pcs lightly..

    Just like , the era when motilal (now mnnit)was not taken lightly by the aspirants.

    bhai I didnt say anything of that sorts..pls check the tag! IAS is always superior to PCS..I guess he just wanted to emphasize upon the post of SDM in your HOME STATE. Anyways I will keep IAS/IPS above SDM of home state and all other services below it.Hope you got my point.

  • too much litigation in uppcs recruitment repels good candidates :/
    Mr soft should do something about it :)

    You are right bhai..though they tried to fasten the process but then litigants are also there..but still I have seen Ghatnachakra books being sold in large nos. in ORN markets now..so yes many ppl now appear for it in the changed pattern of answer writing..

    Bhai
    aur what about those 7 answers in their latest official key thanks to that many like me who would have otherwise cleared are sitting on the sidelines wondering why are we the ones who got screwed because a few candidates who otherwise were failing in Pre convinced the board that their incorrect response should be the answer :weary:

    in the hindsight all experience is good experience :smiley:

    @vasu @phoenixdesires what I wanted to show with that comparison is that as an SDM in up,the scope of public service and exposure is much more...I agree that the scope of IAS increases as you reach the joint secretary level.
    I would only say that PCS in UP is better than most Group A services.In senior posts a PCS officer usually heads the various development authorities,nagar nigams etc.
    Give your best for the PCS exam and qualify.This will remove the insecurity and pressure which we go through while giving the CSE.all the best
