Fate of IAS/IPS officers.

edited May 19 in Miscellaneous
Recently, a young IAS officer Anurag Tiwari died suspiciously.

Today, in news we saw that three senior bureacrats have been found guilty of coal scam in MP.

Few days back a young lady IPS was moved to tears by an MLA.

Sometimes back a senior IAS officer's family was so much tortured that his whole family including him committed suicide.

A number of IAS/IPS officers have been sent to prison under false cases, or tortured by investigating agencies, so on and so forth.


So the question that pops up in my mind is that should the post of IAS /IPS be considered as plum as we think of now or has it degraded a bit/lot taking ground realities into account.

Does this exam deserve years and years of preparation?

  • Go for Indian foreign service, or any other central service.(They are very good for family life n ur spouse too can work since posted in capital)

    That MP incident of lady ips officer was very bad.
    I strongly believe Anurag tiwari died of heart attack or fits n media is cooking stories for trp.

    Its very natural to get these type of dilemmas in mind.

    It is very unfortunate that these events have happened(specially today's ruling), in fact in the morining I felt like posing the same question on twitter to Ashok Khemka.
    However, we should not assume that all the civil servants behave in the interests of larger common good, or are not sycophants of their political masters. We have seen the case of IPS officer, touching the feet of an Ex CM publicly in a function, we have also see a Bureaucrat couple ammasing a huge wealth, in MP Cadre. There are perversions which are built into the IAS-Class.

    I think the way out, as APJ Abdul Kalam had once pointed out, "The birds when the rains come, look for the shelter but the eagles, they fly above the clouds".

    I recently had a chat with a friend who is assisting DM in a particular district. The present DM was transferred out and the new DM is not working with even half the vision of the previous one. Point being, IAS are different individuals and they work in their own priorities and efficiency. The Position gives an individual enough opportunities to leave a considerable mark on the lives of millions, this cannot be disputed. But in the end its a individual's call.

    Coming back to APJ's remark. We must strive hard to build ourselves, our knowledge, skills and education. Raghuram Rajan (and various other IAS officers as well) are a fine example of a constant learner. Stagnation is an invitation to problems.

    I hope that Justice prevails in Anurag Tiwari Sir's case but I do hope that my message reaches out to maximum people, who believe that becoming an IAS is everything, its only a beginning and we have to keep building ourselves in order to survive and contribute.

  • One of the articles I read mentioned that he had a seizure, and he had also been playing badminton or something with a fellow officer prior to heading back home.

    Look man, we all know what happened to Satyendra Dubey and Narendra Kumar. Does that stop hundreds of hardworking, brilliant people from joining civil services? Women have to face lewd behaviour/eve teasing/groping daily, does it stop them from heading out to work/school/college?

    These aren't plum jobs, there are no plum jobs in life. Even the vilest, most poisonous, politicians have to lick someone else's feet. Amma couldn't have been anymore larger than life, see what happened to her in the end.

    So don't prepare for years. Way back folks used to prepare for IITs and medical for 3-4 years straight. Until IIT-JEE put its foot down to 2 chances. Make it or find something else. There are a thousand opportunities to be had if you consider all work alike.
    Dream it, it doesn’t take much.

  • Champa Biswas case in 1998 was most chilling. Where a senior IAS officer's wife was allegedly raped by Mritunjay Yadav. This man's mother was minister, she called ias officers wife at home and locked her inside with M yadav. He also raped wife's mother, sister in law, 2 maids and IAS officer niece. Several complaints were lodged but no one listened as this guy wrote biography of Lalu Yadav and also as per reports even he himself was accused in the case. Fearing for their safety they fled to Delhi.
    IAS officer died three years later due to severe tension.

  • Really we r talking about this? I mean ask any civil servant, not one will agree. Yes this job is demanding, bit risky if u go against those big wigs, but these reasons and talking about fate ??

    Oh these sound like big excuses of avoiding thinking of getting into civil servant job due to different reasons.

    Civil servant job is most reputable, and demanding job . For all the reasons said and talked about here, if any IAS officer feels being unduly over-pressurized or getting over stressed, one will walk away from that job. Moreover, private sector is ready to embrace those people any day with heavy pay check. So they have both option, any day.

    But just talking about "fate of IAS/IPS officers" is like talking nonsense, please don't mind it. But mere selection here certifies your capability. Become one then think otherwise.

    Many senior officers say this that its so easy to earn crores and crores in service but beware, as your wife, your daughter all are at politicians mercy in that case. They would say things to them in front of you and you won't be able to do anything. So be honest.

    Sent chills down my spine. Bad! Bad! No wonder he died of severe tension. Such mental wounds CANNOT heal. Bad bad people! Where did humanity go wrong? Where? I'm literally moved to tears. Some people seriously have a "bad deal" in life. And there's no way out for them. Makes me resent life even more. Day isn't far when some people will actually begin stealing bread from others' hand and rape women thinking it's their birthright to do so. Sigh...

    Where must we go, we who wander this wasteland, in search of our better selves?

    Opinions are different in champa biswas case..one is rape allegation but it was also alleged that she was having extramarital affair with mrityunjay yadav and hence was indulging in consensual sex ..she also went for abortion and then sterlisation to avoid further pregnancy.. So nobody knows the real truth..
