Director Message

Director of Be and By IAS

There is no alternative to this administrative system. The Union will go, you will not have a united India if you do not have a good All-India Service which has the independence to speak out its mind, which has the sense of security that you will stand by your work. If you do not adopt this course, then do not follow the present Constitution, substitute something else these people are the instrument. Remove them and I see nothing but a picture of chaos all over the country.

"Vallabhbhai Patel in the Constituent Assembly of India discussing the role of All India Services."

The genesis of Indian Administrative Service lies in the erstwhile Indian (Imperial) Civil Service of the British rule, which is an instrumentality of the Empire was rightly termed as neither Indian nor Civil nor Service. However, post-independence, when I.A.S. was created under Article 312 of the Constitution of India in 1950 as an All India Service, its role and character completely changed in line with the vision of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel as per his above-mentioned address before the Constituent Assembly to that of the steel framework of the dministration in India. This has made IAS one of the most sought after civil services of India which has become the dream, goal and objective of the majority of the students to aspire for.

“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”

Tagore Does merely aspiring to be a civil servant make the dream come true? Tagore in his highly meaningful statement has very aptly answered this question. No doubt entry to civil service is not so easy; nevertheless at the same time not impossible, but certainly difficult tasks as crossing the sea by sheer hard work of a shark and focusing with the eyes of an eagle. Do I have to be a genius to be a civil servant? What makes anyone successful is not merely being a genius.

“Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% per cent perspiration.” – Thomas Edison

It doesn’t need to be a gold medallist or topper in academics either for being successful in the Civil Services Examination conducted very fairly by the Union Public Service Commission, but it is unavoidable to be focused, specifically, appropriately and objectively prepared for the examination in the way and structure which is expected of an Officer to be.

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.” – Abraham Lincoln

No one else can create your future for you other than yourself. For being focused and not just groping in the dark you need a teacher, mentor, guide and motivator, who would not only prepare you for this challenge with his example of success and experience of unique nature having conquered the summit in his first and the only attempt in perhaps one of the most difficult examination in the country. That is precisely we at Be N By IAS, with the most personal and meaningful message “Be an IAS /By an IAS”, are striving to provide every aspirant with an opportunity to get taught, trained and prepared for accomplishing this herculean task in the shortest possible time with highest standards of quality inputs. However, this can be made possible by none other than the aspirants themselves with the devotion, hard work and a strong zeal for accomplishing the achievable. One can get ‘coaching’ from umpteen good teachers but the difference is made when they can get moulded through structured guidance by someone with years of real success and experience and become a role model himself.

My journey:

It was through the dint of hard work and by leaving no stone unturned that I was able to come out
successfully in various competitive examinations one after another ultimately leading to my joining
the coveted IAS by securing 89th Rank in my one and the only attempt: 

  1. Sub-Inspector of Police inCentral Bureau of Investigation (CBI) conducted by Staff Selection Commission securing all India First position in 1980, from which I resigned as Inspector of Police, CBI, New Delhi in 1985 for beingdenied permission to write Civil Services Examination as per the then-existing policy of the CBI.
  2. Inspector of Central Excise etc., Examination, 1980 securing the fifth position in all India ranking conducted by Staff Selection Commission, which I did not join; and finally Civil Services Examination,
  3. Civil Service Examination 1986 conducted by UPSC securing 89th Rank with Law and Public Administration / Management asoptional subjects thus joining IAS 1987 Batch Tamil Nadu cadre from where I took VoluntaryRetirement from Service in December 2018 in the Apex Scale (Chief Secretary’s Grade). 

These selections step by step not only prepared me in acquiring the necessary skills but being apt in
techniques of successfully handling various competitive examinations over some time. These
successes never diminished my quest for the pursuit of excellence and learning due to which I
continued to pursue academics even while serving in the IAS. My academic achievements as listed
below are perhaps many would find difficult to match in the civil services even.
