An IAS officer or isro employee which have more salary and power?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 28th Mar, 2020

Dear aspirant,

This is a very subjective question. Power is relative, with respect to others and within an organization. To give you an example, An IAS of some big district like Moradabad have more power than the IAS in some small backward district. But this does not belittle the profession of IAS.

Similarly, an ISRO engineer/scientist working on Chandrayaan will have more salary then the engineer who has just entered the organization and working on some existing common project.

Therefore, both of them are relative to the work you do, where you're at, your experience, etc.

Hope this helps. Thank you.


i want to be an ias with a backup plan what should I choose ba or bsc

All The Best as you have a dream to become an IAS  . I suggest you to take B.Sc as there is science stream in your class 11 and 12 . You have many opportunities as you can do M.Sc or PhD after doing B.Sc . You have an opportunity if you fail to achieve your dream of an IAS officer . If you don't get selected for IAS then you have a chance of becoming professor .

Dream to become an IAS but have an other option also in your career . You should work very hard to become an IAS . But concentrate on your degree as Degree is most crucial to become an IAS as without a degree you are not supposed to write the prelims exam .

Hope this helps you .


if agri is the correct graduation for IAS /

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 28th Mar, 2020

First of all,according to eligibility criteria for UPSC,candidates need to pass graduation in any discipline and attained 21 years age, you can appear even in your final year,there isn't any best course or correct course in this matter, the sole reason being UPSC doesn't discriminate among aspirants and hence allow people from all background to appear for this exam. As per previous year trends also,people from different backgrounds like engineering, medical etc too have succeeded, what eventually matters is planning and strategy in this exam.

what are the groups in intermediate which is best for ias?

Megha 28th Mar, 2020

Hello Aspirant !

I will suggest you to first choose wisely your undergraduate and start preparing from starting itself.

Then , choose your subjects according to your preparation and interest that what subject you will take as an optional subject in your exams

Many people go for subjects in ART stream like bachelor of art with subject like geography , history , political science etc according to your interest .

Also , you can try for humanities.

Hope it helps , if you have further query please feel free to ask !


i want to become an after finishing my hsc second year which is the better course for my brightfull future?

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 28th Mar, 2020

In order to appear for UPSC, you just need to be 21 years old and passed graduation in any discipline from a recognized university,you can apply even in your final year. UPSC doesn't discriminate among aspirants and hence allow people from all background to appear for this exam.

See, it's important to understand where your interest lies, and accordingly choose career path. As UPSC is more humanities oriented, it's becomes comparatively easier for arts students to prepare for this exam as they're already well acquainted with this syllabus while science students didn't have any of these subjects at +2 level. But, let me tell you as per previous year trends, many people belonging to engineering and medical too have succeeded, and the only reason being eventually it's the planning and strategy that matters. So, think out clearly about your areas of interest, if you're absolutely clear about UPSC and have liking for any arts subject such as law, political science, history, economics etc you may go ahead, secondly if you're not sure, go with your choice it may be medical, management, engineering or anything else, even if you later feel like giving UPSC,  you can definitely go ahead after gaining some experiences in your related career field like so many successful candidates have done in the past.
