Civil Services are losing their shine as a career option day by day.  It is seen that these are not given so much importance and reputation today as they were given in past. One should be aware of the fact that civil services are still a high ranked career option for young students.


Besides the lure for power and perks, civil services provide enough scope for a person to bring qualitative changes in the functioning of the government. These services even provide opportunities that can ameliorate the lives of millions of Indians.

The most attractive part of this service is the benefits and the comforts provided by the government. The social status that is established by this government job as a civil servant provides you prestige and reputation within the society. Civil services get you the job security which is the major positive point of this service.

Civil service at present is a legacy of the British. ICS officers during the British were provided immense administrative powers. Their main tasks were the preservation of law and order, collection of taxes, etc. However, civil servants today operate within the framework of a democratic welfare state focusing on development and progress of the country.

To be frank one can say that with civil service success will follow you, if you are self disciplined and self confident. If you are a civil servant, you should make use of your time properly and productively, and have qualities of a professional.

Such services provide safeguards for national unity and ensure the uniformity of the administrative system throughout the country. This is done to maintain the minimum common administrative standards. Selected ones for these two services are appointed to different state cadres. They can also be moved to Central Government jobs on deputation if required.
