    I have received horoscopes of capf acs who have left service...for readings. I have immense respect for capf people. But the successive governments have treated them step motherly vis-a-vis army....spending on them is lowest of all. Check pay commission report.

    Cisf -ac has good family life.Things are improving under HM rajnath singh.

    where did u get this info? IPS lobby will not let this happen just like IAS lobby will never agree to pay parity in spite of 7pc recommendations..& CAPF lobby too weak and subordinated to IPS...my info is updated till march 2017..let us know if u have come across anything new..if they allow lateral entry in ips then sooner or later all civil services will be equal..viz IAS=IPS=IRS=....no disparity

    Sorry bhai..didn't knew bank pos are also deputed for combing operations in dandakaranya.......crpf job is tough ,only those who have aptitude n fitness should join it. if u want cozy life then join other jobs. i said what i knew. i am not demotivating anyone. those who love the services will go for it,irrespective of what i say. my intention was only to say upsc preparation is difficult after joining services.

    from a AC, bsf 2014 batch. their IGs are pushing hard for organised service status now. Also, they are demanding for limited examination for entry in ips after few years of service and home ministry is considering their proposals. One thing is sure that this service is definitely going to have better prospects than earlier.

    That's what i said, tell both sides.. your comment sounded very negative especially the beginning mat jao to hi acha hai... Aise nhi hota.. Rahi baat bank po ki to I guess aapko shayad Andaaz nhi hai kitna mental strain hain usme. Bottomline- as you said sab job ka alag aptitude requirement hota hai..

    that guy didn't prepare in training or after posting. when he joined the force, his civil services result was awaiting.

    It is very very hard to prepare for upsc once you joined the force. But yes it is not impossible, some people hv done it the past but yes it is very difficult.

    family life, specifically in CRPF is pretty hard , people often says it chalte raho pyaare force because of frequent movements. Infrastructure is not that great barring some locations. Make no mistake, it is tough.

    promotions, one very good thing about crpf is tht promotions are very fast here , in compare to other forces.
    you might get the chances for deputation in state police on the rank of ASP.
    you have fare chances of being posted in civil areas .
    but living conditions in Naxalite areas are not that great...so many fronts to fight on.

    overall rating : you can't get that answer straight because each force have some negatives and some positives.

    but as you seems a upsc aspirant i can firmly say that CRPF is not the right force for you if you have aspirations about clearing civil services examination.

    PS: i have been an AC myself.
    King of the ring!!
  • If u ask

    1. " Is it possible ?" - My cliche reply.. WHY NOT ? NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. PEOPLE DONE IT, DOING IT AND WILL DO IT.



    2. " Is it easy to prepare simultaneously ?" - It NEVER will be. Even if u join IPS also still preparing for next attempt will be equally tough. (Except if u take EOL. that u can take anywhere except in pvt jobs !).



    3. "Can I do it ?" - 100% YES or 100% NO. depending on ur own WILL+WILLPOWER+HARD-CUM-SMART WORK+ GOD'S GRACE FACTOR combination.


    4. "Should I do it?" - two views ie JOB SECURITY FIRST then Civil Services preparation is better.

    Or


    First try 100% dedicated preparation for CSE >>> after 2 3 attempts think of Job Security.


    BOTH VIEWS EQUALLY STRONG. Both have own pros and cons. You decide urself. No one can help u here EVER.


    I chosen 2nd one and i am Berojgar yet content till now. Many of my friends chosen same and are berojgar and lamenting on not thinking of backup on time in the great gamble !


    Similarly i have hell lot of friends having Good backup then leaving it or keeping it with lamenting that IFFFFF THEY WOULD HAVE GIVEN 100% THEY WOULD HAVE CRACKED CSE for sure !



    So make ur decision. Assume worst case scenario of that decision. And ponder over whether u can JUSTIFY, ACCEPT responsibility of failure in the worst case and remain CONTENT AND HAPPY. Go with it.



    Finally Duniyaaa to har taraf se bjaayegi depending on ur Final Outcomes onlyyyy ... bsss khud ka internal satisfaction matter krta h :mrgreen:

    Jai Hind.



    PS- AC CRPF is very high thing. In this country every year 1 crore+ youth aspire for , prepare for and FIGHT FOR getting a Group D govt job. So come out of fake illusion of dichotomy of Good and Bad job.

    Only criteria u should ponder over is MERE LIYE ACHHA H YA NHI ? ..and mere liye means STRICTLY for ME onlyyyy ?

    Kisika gyaan kaam nhi aayega is ke answer khojne me. U must take decision and OWN IT. the sooner u do it the better u will be.

  • Avoid CAPF if you can.
    It is a brotherly advice....
    You can do much better things in your life... but plz frnds take it as my advice.... plz avoid it..
    Once upon a time i used to b a big fan of aura of uniform... but priorities change in your life when you get married.
    I dont wish to crticize the capf and also i m bound by ccs conduct rules.
    Plz pm me if u want a true picture of capf.
