Union Public Service Commission’s (UPSC) Indian Administrative Service (IAS) exam is considered to be one of the toughest exams in India, thus it is called as ‘Mother of all exams. There are very obvious reasons for considering it so some of them can be the preparation level it requires is very tough, so much so that some of the aspirants are seen to be preparing this exam soon after their matriculation, some prepare after their 12th Exam and many starts preparing during their graduation by using the library facilities provided by the concerned universities. Successful candidates become bureaucrats in this country who are literally the ‘Civil Servants’ and are called the ‘Steel Pillars’ of this country. Thus it is not surprising to see so many applications for this exam, wherein success ratio is very low to an extent of less than 1 percent of the lakhs of applicants who make this exam very competitive. This race is merely for some seats roughly around 15,000 who are selected for next round and finally around 1000 applicants are selected in the service of Indian administration.
Rigorous preparation is the hallmark of this exam, one must plan his/her strategy read necessary books, take proper guidance, take mock tests to be an IAS, IPS (Indian Police Service), IFS (Indian Foreign Service), IRS (Indian Revenue Service) etc. There are many motivating factors for dreaming to clear this exam and has attracted a large number of graduate to prepare for this exam, making it a highly competitive exam in this country. Nonetheless, it is not everyone’s cup of tea to even constantly prepare for the exam with dedication and with patience; very few have these qualities in them.
That apart, running a district requires more than this, it requires more than just some degrees, the intelligence and hard work applied in clearing the exam. It is not just passing this test conducted by UPSC. There are many more qualities required to work as an officer and to handle the responsibility given to that particular officer, top ten qualities required by an IAS officer are as follows:
Therefore, irrespective of what his personal beliefs or notions are if he lacks in any of these qualities he shouldn’t have opted to choose this field of service. Keeping these ideas in mind is one thing and implementing them in real life on the field is another and becomes very difficult. It requires guts to adhere to these qualities and implement them while working. Only those aspirants having these qualities need to proceed to prepare for this exam otherwise, there are other options available in this country.
