    If you want to have idea about regarding instructions in advance.you can check daf instructions available on upsc site for economic services.
    Basic instructions will be the same.

    Please have a look they are former bureaucrats(former CBEC chairman, CBDT chairman and former Telecom Secretary) helping in filling up DAF preparing for interview. I went to this place and would highly recommend it. DAF plays a pivotal role in the interview.

    And there is no charge for this.you can have telephonic discussion or in person

  • Do you think watching formula 1 as hobby is ok? Or it sounds too unbecoming for a civil service aspirant?
  • Anyone who has done an exchange semester in a foreign university, and has filled the daf earlier, please ping. TIA.

    Sorry for being ignorant, but how exactly does the ranking of services work (the top 3 which we put in the DAF) ?

    Wouldn't - probably - everyone have the following priority:
    Priority 1: IAS
    Priority 2: IFS (a few would have swapped this order with IFS being P1 and IAS being P2)
    Priority 3: IPS (a few would choose IRS over IPS)

    It would be very helpful if someone could shed some light on how does the service ranking and the cadre ranking works. Thanks a lot in advance

    Fiction is the most loved creative work. If you are genuine book lover then why will it create difficulty.. personal life/choices are essential part of any human being.. what you do with your mind and thinking is your issue none can interfere in it ... Until unless you are enjoying it and limits of art 19.2

    Do you think watching formula 1 as hobby is ok? Or it sounds too unbecoming for a civil service aspirant?

    Our hobbies are part of our private or personal life/personality development ... seeking Spiritual and mental pleasure is our basic freedom ... So your love for particular sport is always okay ..
  • suppose one plays an instrument, what do you reckon they could ask?

    No difficulty.
    Fiction helps a lot in imagination etc.
    You can justify on many points

    Depends on the instrument, they may ask you about what do you play on that/ its origins/ famous players/ why did you decide to pick this instrument/ who introduced you to the instrument/ have you played professionally or performed in front of an audience. Things like that.

    I play the santoor and I was asked whether I play Indian classical music and how long have I been playing.
    Prelims - 2015 | 2016 | 2017

    Kitne marks ka hai ye question.

    On a serious note,analyse your priorities,choices, comfort level first.And then decide accordingly. Tgere is enough material on tge web about tge two services if you care to put some effort.

    It's ok.
    If someone watching f1 and therefore not good for IAS. nothing is like this.there is no correlation between two.
    If that so they wouldn't have asked once a question in mains gs regarding meaning of flags shown on track during f1 race .
    Requirement is if watching then you must be able to tell x,y,z of race .
