An IAS officer works on the following areas in their day to day life:

  • The role of an IAS officer involves the implementation of the policies planned by the ministers. Therefore they conduct meetings with the ministers in order to understand the policies better.

  • They have to reach the office in team and read the daily report from the staff.

  • They have to travel to the places where the policies need to be implemented. Therefore they frequently visit to different places.

  • Personal supervision is required for each and every task. They have to keep an eye on everything that is going on.

  • Many urgent works may occur during the day. Let's say if emergency situation occurs in their area, as a part of administration they are responsible for it and have to react immediately.

  • Atthe beginning of their career IAS officers join the state administration at the sub-divisional level, as a sub-divisional magistrate, and look after law and order, general administration and development work in the area under their charge.

  • The main work of IAS officers at the Centre, involves formulation and implementation of policies pertaining to a particular area e.g., finance, commerce, etc.

Therefore it is a challenging job and contains huge amount of responsibilities,
