thanks. sir .... sir can you make courses related to mechanical engineering......any subject
Great video sir. As mentioned fresh IRS cadre recruits join as Asst.Commissioners, what is the equivalent of it in Indian armed forces. Also as Indian Navy offers free medical, ration facilities, free accommodation, do we get the same in IRS(C&CE). Can you make a video comparing Indian Armed forces and civil services??
Sir you are Phd in E-governance , could you please take a class on that, thanks in advance

May be yes. I will try soon. Do you have anything specific in mind because E-Governance is a huge subject?
Thank you for the response sir !! E-Governance is a huge subject and we do not have a dependable source for it. It would be so helpful if you could please give us a consolidated lesson. Backed by your extensive experience in services and your knowledge, I am sure, it will be the best we can get.
