Recently lot of controversies have been going on with regard to the process of holding examination for selection of IAS/IPS etc. every young graduate is aspiring to be IAS. But why??IAS/IPS officers consider themselves as super human and have highly inflated EGO.They may be talented but there is huge pool of other talented persons who can serve the country better,if given a chance.Basically the Britishers had created ICS to rule this country from thousands miles away.Things have now changed.India is now a free country but we are still continuing with the legacies of the past.We are a welfare state.We have to work for the progress and prosperity of millions of Indians and live with our head erect.
There is necessity to allow people with talent to serve the Government in Power for implementation of their policies.Experts/specialists from different fields can be recruited by the Government on contract basis to serve the full term of the Government and then they may revert to their field of specialization once the new Government takes over who can have their own team of officers similarly recruited.
The huge establishment running the day to day business of the Government also need to be pruned and minimized. IAS becomes heads of everything as if they know everything and others who may be specialist in their fields are all mediocre. This attitude must go.
Let there be opportunity for qualified and talented people to serve the country in top positions not on the basis of seniority in a particular service like IAS but on the basis of merit tested at the nick of time.A person passes an examination/interview(howsoever tough it may be) some thirty years ago and then keeps ruling the country all over his life.This is ridiculous.It is appropriate that the Government reviews the system,disbands the IAS and like services and bring real democracy in India.
