Hello Freinds, after painstaking efforts and liasoning we have come out with a book namely “An Introduction to Civil Services”. The idea behind this book is to introduce the students with the various facets of different Civil Services of India.

“An Introduction to Civil Services” is a book describing the roles, responsibilities, career path, cadre structure, advantages and disadvantages of 23 different All India Services and Central Civil Services recruited by the UPSC (via the Civil Services Examination and other examinations). The advantages (and disadvantages) of one service are described with reference to the other civil services.

It also describes the various State (or sub-national), National and International deputation opportunities enjoyed by the officers of different services. Furthermore, it provides a comparative analysis of the different governmental services in a simple and understandable manner for the benefit of the students.
