I am engineering students, I want to preparing for BPSC, but I have some doubt regarding selecting the language i.e medium, I have done my B.tech in English, but studying of GS paper in English is quite hard for me and writing skills in English is not also good...so suggests the medium
It is not a hidden fact that English language has a slightly higher edge over Hindi language(with due respect to Hindi). However it is not a bad thing if you give your BPSC exam in Hindi because in the end what matters is your selection after BPSC exam. So if you are comfortable and fluent in Hindi medium then go for Hindi language.
Hope this helps.
All the best!!!
Senior deputy collector aur Sdm me kya difference hai?? aur State me sirf Deputy collector hota hai lekin bihar me senior deputy collector kyu?? senior deputy collector kaise sdm banta hai?? kya senior deputy collector ak sub-division kaa head hota hai?? plz Ans in detail
SDM is Sub-divisional magistrate while Senior deputy collector that id ADM i.e. Additional District Magistrate who is just after the DM i.e. District Magistrate or collector.
Now, here SDM is responsible only for a Revenue division or Sub-division or Sub-district. And, he is below ADM as he is responsible for whole district. In bigger cities like Patna we also have a post between collector and ADM that is Senior deputy collector of which you are talking. The work of three of these personalities is almost the same but in larger city one or two people are not sufficient for all the handling and management. Obviously, by promotion SDM becomes ADM and above.
Feel free to ask doubts in the Comment Section.
I hope this information helps you.
