The IAS or Indian Administrative Services is a civil services position that gains a lot of prestige and respect. Each year, millions of students work hard to crack the IAS exam. IAS officers hold strategic and important positions in the Union Government, States and public-sector undertakings.
If you have a huge vision for India and want to be a part of the vision of making India “super-power” then IAS is exactly what you should go for.
IAS officers are bureaucrats who have the rights to significantly influence decision making of the Government. A usual work day of an IAS Officer resembles very much like any other bureaucrat’s day. A daily schedule might include checking mail, arriving at the office, meeting with superiors, chairing a meeting, lunch, file work, attending a meeting, answering letters/mail, file work continues, and finally call it a day unless there is an emergency.

We suggest that IAS aspirants try and cultivate the following teachings of the Gita this will be useful in professional life too. Lord said:

ते प्राप्नुवन्ति मामेव सर्वभूतहिते रताः।।12.4।।
