PV Sindhu Assumes Office As Deputy Collector

Can anyone become District Collector in India? Is not the mockery of whole process of Civil services ? She is good in badminton but how can she take care of administration ? Can any one explain ..or any precedence ?

    It's is complete mockery of civil services post. How can she handle the social issues. Why can't they offer any reasonable post like railways or any other service like many other players get. It's completely political gain. Shame on govt

    the state assembly unanimously passed a Bill amending the AP Public Services Act, providing a Group-I officer job to Sindhu. The amendment to the Act was required as this special appointment bypasses the regular recruitment process through the AP Public Service Commission.

    very shameful

  • These people are the ones who have participated in international games on behalf of our country and for that they invest considerable amount of efforts (practising since childhood) so much that they do compromise on education, career. Athletic people have very short career which often ends in mid 30s, Which makes it difficult for them to secure livelihood. Thus it is important to assure these people guaranteed job so that they can give their best without being worried about job. Don't compare them with cricketers or badminton players.

  • Joginder sharma ji - 2007 t20 wale, is serving as dsp. Achaa backup hai sports walon ke liye given that their active period is very small.

    Harbhajan is also DSP

    moreover this one is a rare case, I mean how mny olympic silver medallists do we have? It will be a push to encourage parents to accept children choosing sports as a career. Moreover it's just kind of ceremonial posting, she won't do much work in that, but will draw salary. But still you can't help thinking how wrong this approach is, because olympics are good, but administration is way more important. It's just that state governments don't feel the sense of importance its essential works require.

    It also brings into question the very purpose of existence of states or a federation in India. States are just giving lip service to major cultural identies in different parts of the country. Administratively, India would be no different if states did not even exist as administrative units. Or may be the situation wud be a lot better in a centralised polity. The state governments are very laid back about their key performance areas, or do they have any?

  • Those arguing that sportsperson give a lot of effort,neglect education in their quest to achieve glory and hence deserve such jobs are plainly missing the point that no one forced them to be an athlete.

    If athlete's career is short then that is a risk associated with that career just like other career's also have associated risks and they should take their decisions based on such factors.

    Giving away crucial administrative posts in the name of promoting sports is just plain political stunt and is a mockery of civil services aspirants who put their sweat and blood into these exams.


    And it's not that these athletes have worked hard,everyone who wants to achieve success works hard.Hard work Shouldnt be equated just to physical work.

  • As far as i know these are honorary posts.. seldom sent on grassroots duty.. only pay and privileges provided.. generally specialists are assigned technical tasks.. these people are mostly confined to office postings only not field postings as such.. CM has powers to make dsp/sdm etc to any govt employee anytime.. however there promotion to dm/sp require consent by upsc which is seldom provided.. it's same as Nomination in RS or LS.. to infuse outside talent to bureaucracy which is otherwise cocooned in the false sense of supremacy and WE KNOW ALL attitude.. however Politicisation and misuse/abuse of good provisions is INDIAN HABIT ;) Another example they going for Lateral Entry concept.. giving this concept at S level as of now will be disastrous ..at central level also possible negative repercussions but today more centralized and strong checks at central level so benefits may outweigh negatives..


    PS- Don't worry tumharo posts pe aanch nhi aayegi.. very soon people in system realises the fallouts.. like Rekha and Sachin g realised the euphoria of getting nominated in RS and now paying by FORCEFULLY attending the Arena of Monkey-Fighting which is not their cup of tea but the "monkies" enjoys it !!! :D :D :D

    Last line is crux of debate...
    On name of promoting sports..politicians compromising developmental activities.these are not the honorary posts

  • This is an ideal example of Indians being rigorous opportunists.When opportunity arises, we grab. Our society worships power, when its offered ona dinner plate, we take it with folded hands.

  • People crying hoarse cuz a woman athelete who won silver medal in olympics given a SDM Post. She has already proved her mental strength , dedication and capability to do hard work which is way more than what is required for becoming IAS. As far as merit is concerned, mains exam is not only the sole parameter to judge administrative capabilities when many ministers( not to include PM) have shoddy degrees.
    Its a good step ,and it will promote sport, her expertise could also be utilise in sports administratration. what worse could possibly happen ? She may fail in discharging her duties..so many PCS officers do.
    infact she should have been given group A central service post..This idea was mooted by former sports minister Ajay Makan.

  • It is a way of honouring achievers in sports, a field in which our performance has been too bad. This points out to the fact that these posts are still seen as "titles" and power centres and not that of public servants. Whom to blame? Government or the administration ?
    ·
  • And years of dedication , perseverance and physical n mental strength on one hand.... And years of memorising of facts and figures on the other. Who will be a better administrator? I don't know

  • Strange, no eyebrows were raised when SRT got into Group captain of the IAF, dhoni, kapil dev into the army or Abhinav bindra in it. It is way of paying respect to players. These are just symbolism, encouragement and popular politics.
    But I wonder, whether Messi or Neymar or Ronaldo or Fedex or Serena Williams etc are SDM of their districts in the country :neutral: , or are we following colonial legacy of some sort.

    She undoubtedly showed her mental strength and hard work in sports but how can you equate it with the mental strength and hard work of an administrator ? You are comparing the incomparables. On what grounds can you say that a sportsman has merit more than that of an IAS ? Both have different kind of reasoning and aptitude to deal with problems in their specific fields and to indulge them into administration is not only a shame for the system of bureaucracy but also a shame to their capabilities . If a person who has achieved milestones in sports be given top class asministrative posts then we have plenty of sportspersons who are sitting idle in home right now , let's just shutdown UPSC and SSPCs and start recruiting them directly.

    We can afford ministers to be illiterate only because we have a permanent,well trained bureaucracy to advice these ministers.And this bureaucracy has lot of knowledge to suitably advise these illiterate ministers.


    Solution to PSC officers failing is to punish them accordingly and not justify adding one more potential failing officer just because the current crop is rotten.


    If sports equips the person with all necessary qualities to be a good administrator,then why have public service commissions to conduct a rigorous exam at all.Dont you think the syllabus we study has no relevance whatsoever in administrator.Agreed the process of selection of UPSC might not be perfect,but the knowledge gained in the process is of tremendous help.

  • People you are bashing too much. Go to our esteemed universities and you will find people doing phd in african studies because they get free food, room and monthly allowances. There are many people that way

    What will that student who had to just fill his hallticket number in exam teach after being a prof.? Atleast it must have been some 40- 50 out of 200. :|

  • Now sindhu will only use her power to write recommendation letters for passports or VIP darshan in temples. No big task will be assigned to her, she will play until she has the spirit, then she will be a coach. This job is just namesake.
