    Very excellent word for administration, rule and make peace in public, make arrangement to be live in harmony key holder of treasury of district and department, organisation adviser called IAS. But alas now a days some people making them slave influenced and they do not know how many years they have been wasted how much books they have studied to reach such rich post.
    Reason corruption character less rapist making fool to whole social system. As i experienced when I joined small clerk job to save my all properties i wrote in my service book for police verification all details and have land nearly ten BEEGHA mine own name in Amad Pur Dabaria Dhanapur Chanduali UP.
    I could not buy a acre land and not can purchase four wheeler till date in my 34 years tenure of Govt Job and now I am Admin officer.

    My one son is in Ohio US for MS after leaving JSW JSPL as assistant Engr on 18 Aug 2013 he was paying Income tax since his appointment and brilliant KVYP scholar. Second is in some where doing ty. editing job after doing Mass communication after selection in IPU alter joined Lovely university Julludher with some people wasted all earning for education i can under stand when shield and trophy certificate acquired by son daughter who make all efforts to make them worthy for administration for world.

    But now i am looking past those became leader by JP Narayan they are now trillion difference is such as i was also best in college and best in all field but did not inter in politics. So why because of loose IAS. Otherwise they are only head of every where leader party only man date for five years they were getting minimum nominal money but they made .

    So any corruption if they do not think one can not do so leaders are being saved by them by cheque signatory are they not any one else as per side of Govt.

    Best of luck for exam and preparation but need to learn lesson after getting appointment and i wish pray no one will be approach nay one because the time left When KR narayan Jagjeevan Ram were helped by Leader out of way being bright brain now they will know some one are bright they will make trangender grab their family and declared mad.
