A question usually arises in the minds of the aspirants as to why choose the UPSC CMS Examination over a Post Graduate course.
Through this blog, we will provide clarification as to why one should appear for UPSC CMS Examination or opt for PG.
The following points will help you decide as to why you should choose UPSC CMS:
Prestige, Pride, and Power
The prestige, pride, and power associated with the UPSC CMS are far more in Indian society. Any candidate who clears the UPSC CMS exam would become a Chief Medical Officer. For some, getting recruited through UPSC is of utmost priority considering the esteem, repute, and honor associated with UPSC jobs.
Decent Salaries and Excellent Perks
A lucrative pay scale is what lures at the start of the career. People who get recruited through UPSC enjoy a great degree of repute, power and avail numerous other benefits. Pay scale is an important aspect that has to be considered while choosing a career. The starting pay scale ranges between INR 70,000 to INR 80,000 per month.
If you are in a private sector job, you can be removed without any notice. You are always under the constant fear of the company and its top management.
The service conditions of civil servants, however, are determined by the Parliament and cannot be changed. Their service is protected by Article 311 of the Indian Constitution according to which, any employee cannot be dismissed from service without an inquiry where she/he would be given an opportunity to defend herself/himself. The promotion of a civil servant is not in the hands of a politician, which is either based on seniority or is time bound manner. The promotion committees are headed by UPSC Member/Chairman and hence you can expect utmost objectivity in the promotion.
You don’t have to fear anyone if you have not done anything wrong.
Work Life Balance
While it is common to hear the condition of the civil servants that they don’t have a good private life, it is not entirely true. Every government department has different types of postings. Some posts require long hours of work while quite a few posts are such where you have to find work. The renumeration in both the cases is exactly the same.
Hence, if you give priority to personal life, you can always ask the government to give you such assignments, where you can have more free time for yourself and the family.
