Consider  their  hands-on experiences.

The Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers have large public interface and can successfully manage the political class  and have  cosy relationships  with them. They have huge discretionary authority that is liable to be misused. Excellent  chances of  getting post-retirement assignments by encashing political contacts.

 The Indian Foreign Service (IFS) has been under-rated for several decades ,even though the IFS officers  have more legitimate income  by virtue of better pay scales and  handsome foreign allowances. But , their authority is confined to their domain. Being academically inclined,they have  better  oratorial skill.

Conclusion :

-----------------

Equipped  with wide administrative experience and project monitoring ,the IAS officers have the advantage of having a more  result-oriented approach.

 

 

 

Attaching IFS officers with ministers is waste of their talent. They are not cut out for such jobs.

 

 This is not to be-little the IFS officers.

 

 

If the IFS officers are considered worldly-wise, the IAS officers  can be considered street- smart.
