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,
