What exactly is your question.


Are you looking out for as government job and in the same sector.

If I understand you correctly, you are looking out for a government job, meaning you are currently under the private sector and wish to move to the government sector.

I don't see any reason to move from a private to a government sector. Unless, you are looking out for a retirement pension plan.
But never-the less private organizations do provide you with other benefits like PF and insurance.

Apart from this, also please note that a private organization would give you an overall exposure and will have chances of promotions with increments higher than a government jobs.
Moreover the chances of learning and making contacts increases in private organizations.
The other advantage is the easy availability of pursuing a higher study for the benefits of an individual.

Mostly, in a government job, the two benefits are, retirement plan pension and less of work load with fixed timings to work.

Dear Career Aspirant,

Thanks for writing to us!
In govt., there are two types of jobs: 1. Contractual and, 2. Permanent.

You can get contractual in your domain of education, and job experience. Contractual jobs are temloraty with fixed salary or renumeration. You don't get pension benefit here.

For permanent jobs, you need to either appear for competitive exams such as upsc departmental exams or direct recruitment. Minimum qualification for appearing in competitive exam is graduation with 55% in any discipline.

If you have are looking for contractual jobs then better you Continue your work in private sector. There is much difference between both.

If you want to get permanent position, better you start preparation for competitive exams and get permanent job.

Now you need to assess your qualification, area of work, strength and ability to study for competitive exams to get permanent position in govt.

Hope you can take informed decision about govt jobs. If you still have query, feel free to write back.

Best Wishes,
