India is a vast country that needs to have distinct systems of management to ensure smooth functioning. The Indian Administrative Service is a branch of the Indian Civil Service. The role of an IAS officer is to see to the administrative matters of the government. Having cleared the mandatory exams and made it to the merit list (only the top 80 to 100 become IAS officers), an IAS officer is recruited in the government
Those who have cleared the first frontier of exam and interview are sent for training. During this time they are on probation. After having completed the mandatory training, the officers are posted at the junior level in the administration. Most of them are posted in rural and semi-urban areas so that they get a feel of the actual country that they are serving. The service is hierarchical. One has to rise through the ranks, but they have fixed promotion time. So, if someone has spent the necessary amount of time in a particular position, he is automatically promoted to the next level. The key here is the experience.
During their tenure, at various ranks, the IAS officers are responsible for managing issues related to the administrative functioning of the various departments where they are posted. They frame policies and also advise the ministers on various issues. They are also responsible for maintaining the law and order in their area if they are posted in that rank. Take the case of the District Magistrate who takes care of overall development in his district as well as looks after the law and order situation.
Prestigious Indian Civil Services exam provides a plethora of opportunities to serve the country.We at Toppers25 will transform your overall personality to crack prelims, mains and interview rounds. consistent, focused and smart studies are the key.
