Reality check-Selections from 115 backward districts. Is UPSC a Delhi/Metro-staying elites timepass?

edited April 28 in Political Science
Thank God our Democracy, our political system is based on -
1. elections from constituencies covering all geographical regions
2. giving importance to geographical representativeness both at Union & state elections

In the garb of so-called meritocracy, our Bureaucracy, our higher public services recruitment
is dominated year after year with children of influential well-to-do ias, ips families, govt
servants, business class and so on.. bcoz merit no longer flourishes under street lights!!

Please post here about any selections u come across on tv, newspaper, online social media
from the following list of 115 backward districts.. in Civil Services Exam 2018 Final Results...

    Even if there is found any selection from these places - it definitely would of those who are children of Rich persons and are taking coaching in Delhi since past 3-4 years.

    Because there are Rich people in backward districts, too.

    Lol kuch bhi mat bolo yaar. Time pass kyun kar rahe ho.
    this year rank in 800s from a district here.
    last year rank 25, and some in 100s from the same district.
    None of them are from rich families. Mostly middle class like all of us.
  • MP ki in districts k middle class/rich ladko ka bhi IBPS mein hi selection bahut hai. IAS to thoda dur hai.

    IAS to chhodo, MPpsc main bhi Open category main MP k log minority(<50%) main hi milte hain- or wo bhi jab log Interview main partiality ka ilzaam lagaate hain.MP main karyarat professors, bankers, civil servants main se ~2/3rd baahar k hain.

    Phir bhi 1-2 logo ki news gaahe bagaahe mil jaati hai....ki ek ladka jiske mom-dad is district k thee and phir Delhi main bas Gaye- and phir wo IIT main chala gaya- phir PSU join karlo- phir Delhi main 4 saal raha- phir selection hua. Local newspapers main is maati k saput k saal bhar charche rehte hain. Jaise Tina Dabi was from Bhopal, Sunita Williams from India etc,etc.

    Though there are no official figures about the state-wise success of students in the all -India civil service examination, the success rate of Odisha is way lower than other states like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Only 15 candidates from Odisha cracked the exam this year. While two of them have secured 48 and 65 ranks.

    Highly Generalised statement. People from poor/Lower middle class family are cracking the exam.
