    Manipur
  • Sub deputy collector are any day better then rotting in borders/naxal/terrorist infected jungles of india , choose PCS blindly in home state u will earn respect money and peace
  • Both,are equally good brother.
    As a SDM, you r more close to society, common man,more or less same power as capf.lots of work pressure, political interference ect.while in capf you can become a Group-A officer​.limited social connections as mostly capf officer deployed around borders.
    so,if you have a passion for fencing our borders,love fighting with Naxalites in chhatis,like to guard our border with China at 15000 ft then you must go for Capf.Otherwise you go for state service.
    Thanks

    Are CAPF equally powerful to SDM....In my area SSB is deployed....Here even a Station House Officer is more powerful than deputy commandant....CAPF power has inherently many limitations....They have to hand over the arrested person to police then all the investigation charge sheet filing is carried out by police....In many cases they cannot search vehicle of civilian without presence of a police personnel leave alone arresting...so on and so forth......although CAPF is a group A post but if power is a criterion then I think DSP through State PCS is much much much more powerful.....While SDM being an executive magistrate is inherently powerful plus job profile has a lot of diversity....This diversity can be matched only by IAS...with limited exposure I have I will suggest you to blindly go for State PCS top 3 posts ie. Deputy Collector, DSP and commercial tax assistant commissioner .....CAPF is nowhere in comparison

  • I think u are right
