UPSC civil services(main) exam in October

The UPSC civil services (Main) exam is scheduled to be held in October. It is that time of the year when lakhs of aspirants are wrapping up their preparation, while getting ready for the final examination. Civil services continues to be one of the most coveted professions in the country, believes Vijay Dev, senior IAS officer. Dev, who pursued engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, but decided to join the services, says, “At that point of time, opportunities were limited. Engineering, medicine, law and civil services were the only sought-after professions. Now, with liberalisation and globalisation, a range of avenues have come up.” However, he maintains, despite ample opportunities in various fields nowadays, civil services is an all-time favourite with the youth. But, the structure of services has changed in the last 20 years and needs further revamping. Today, the services are not about the royalty and stature of a bureaucrat, it is more about accountability and contributing to society.
