  • If you are trying to become an IAS officer then shed the mindset that it is the woman's duty to move wherever the husband gets a job.

    Only when the husband is himself a bureaucrat will a consideration be made to post the spouses together or close by. If the husband is not in a government job, then he better be ready to follow his wife to a new district every few years or else they can live apart and meet on the weekends.

    The answer to your question is both yes and no.
    explaining by example...

    consider your home cadre as MP
    1. now u are allotted to Karnataka and your husband who also is an IAS officer is allotted to Bihar
    In this case, the govt gives an option either to your husband to change his cadre to Karnataka or u to get changed to bihar.

    2. Suppose your husband gets MP cadre, in this case as MP is your home cadre the govt will not give u option to change your cadre to MP, but only gives an option to your husband to change to karnataka.

    3. This offer is valid if and only if the couple belongs to the All India services, suppose your husband is in IRS and u are IPS then no changes in the cadre!

    You cannot choose where you are posted, otherwise everyone can come up with some suitable reason to stay in a desirable city. The government tells you which district to go to and you have to show up there. Transfers happen every 1.5 to 2 years.

    They are quite strict about it like pointed out above marriage is one option to an AIS officer or inter cadre deputation for limited time that too after considerable years in alloted one...state civils will suit you more if you are So concerned about posting to undesirable place

    I am sorry I couldn't understand this question properly.. I think u are getting confused between 2 things here - inter- cadre transfers and posting both of which are different.. If the husband do not belong to All India services ( IAS IPS IFoS) then there is no way you can get a change in the cadre to the state where he is posted in, no matter which capacity he is working. however if he's posted/ working in your state/cadre then u can use some political influence and get a transfer nearer to him!

    Thats a very genuine concern! Now the obvious question I have to ask u is :

    is your husband an IAS officer ?! If not then when u clear IAS and get allotted to some other cadre politely ask him to shift to the state where u get allotted.. This is the only option with u.. the govt wont allow random inter cadre transfers and if u don't get UP as your home cadre at the beginning then all through your IAS career u will not get it..

  • @rookie no my husband is not an IAS officer.. and its not possible for him to shift to some other state or city because he is having his own business so its not possible for him to shift. o.k tell me if i get i high rank then also i can not demand them to give me posting in UP?

    If u are general cat then u have to be UP topper and only then u may get UP cadre. If u have reservation then u can easily get your home cadre..

  • @rookie i belong to general cat or if i get good rank then there are chances na that i get my desired state?upto what rank can i get UP posting? and after posting if i wish that i want to stay in same place till retirement is it possible?
    acc max in government services and banks people do consider this marriage problem of women.. so i was thinking that may b UPSC also...

    You will probably need to be in the top 25 to get UP cadre in general category. However, even in the UP cadre you will certainly get posted all over UP during your service. There is no way that you can get to settle in just one place as an IAS officer. In the majority of the jobs that you get through the civil services exam, your career will be spent moving from one place to the next.

    You should consider UPPSC, if you want more stability in your place of posting.

    there will be 2 posts in UP for general and u have to grab them if u want to stay in UP. If for example, rank no 1 and 2 have given preference for UP then even if u get 3rd rank u will not get your home cadre. but such scenario is rare and as @stardust said its safe to be within 25 to have any remote chance. Also this IAS job is sort of different than banks and other govt services, so staying at one city throughout your IAS career is impossible. U will be transferred in and out throughout every nook and corner of UP and also u will be sent on Central deputation where u will have to work from Delhi.

    madam, I was just kidding about pub ad! Please consider all options before taking a decision on optionals!
    try asking your friends and go through the uppsc previous year's Q papers to get a fair idea. Optionals can make or break your selection!

    I am from the land of sandalwood trees - Karnataka! :D
