Sir , as per your answer in quora (https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-salaries-of-IAS-IPS-and-IFS-officers) , the fixed salary of highest post via IAS is around 80000 , this might take a person around 25+ years in private sector a person can achieve this by 5 years , kindly correct me if wrong
मार्गदर्शन के लिए धन्यवाद आदरणीय सर ,मै शादी के बाद अब अपनी पढाई रिज्यूम करना चाहती हु लेकिन कुछ लोगो ने बताया है की 30 + उम्र में आईएएस अफसर बनने में अब काफी नुकसान है क्योंकि अधिकतर आईएएस अब २२ से 26 के बीच ही बन जा रहे है वो सीनियर होते है और अपने से अधिक उम्र के जूनियर आईएएस अफसर से उनका बर्ताव बेहतर नहीं होता। या यह सिर्फ अफवाह है ?मै यह जानना चाहती हु की आईएएस अफसर की नौकरी में सीनियर आईएएस अफसर का कितना दखल रहता है। सीनियर और जूनियर आईएएस अफसर होने से क्या फर्क पड़ सकता है ?
thank u sir .... but i have 1 doubt. jab ias/ ips officers koi strict actions lete hain. to unka transfer ho jata hai. ye kafi dekha gya hai. aur sir aapki bhi baat shi hai ki unki life style waisi hi rhegi, wo ias/ips officer hi rhenge. to is baat se preshan hone ki koi jrurat nhi hai . but sir jis kam ko initiate krne ki wjah se unka transfer hua . wo kam to ruk jata hai na sir......... to iska solution kya hoga? to fir kya aise officers ko frustation nhi hoti hogi ki mai is kam ko adhura kr ke ja rha hu. aur ye to unhe bhi nhi pta rhta hoga ki aane wala nya officer us kam ko tawajjo dega bhi ya nhi.
Sir please may i get ur e-mail id ...
