Can I earn a salary of 50-75 lacs per year in a PSU or as a HEI officer without corruption?

PSU and IES officers are highly paid jobs in the Indian government. They are really giving a competent salary with the private sector.

50-75 Lacs for annulment in PSU or as IES officer without corruption:

In today's scenario, immediately "NO". The truth is that without corruption no job can not give you as much salary or income in the government sector.

You can only get this figure without corruption after 25 years of service as a senior official :)

Having worked in both places for a significant time, I have a pretty good idea about IES and PSU.

The situation has been complicated sometimes inadvertently by aspiring / rookies and sometimes maliciously by the coaching industry with the intention of making money.

Short answer: my friend, it is ultimately a matter of personal choice. It can be said that IES is better than B or C schedule companies, but when compared to Maharatna PSUs like ONGC, IOCL, etc., things get very complicated and the choice is very difficult because there is not an answer clear.However, if you have time, read the lon

Having worked in both places for a significant time, I have a pretty good idea about IES and PSU.

The situation has been complicated sometimes inadvertently by aspiring / rookies and sometimes maliciously by the coaching industry with the intention of making money.

Short answer: my friend, it is ultimately a matter of personal choice. It can be said that IES is better than B or C schedule companies, but when compared to Maharatna PSUs like ONGC, IOCL, etc., things get very complicated and the choice is very difficult because there are However, if have time, read the longer version. I have sincerely tried to answer some of the questions analytically and in detail. Longer answer would be a bit boring as it compares some details and I am a pathetic writer, however please vote if you find it helpful.

Long answer: Currently it can be said that more people prefer IES to PSU due to multiple factors, or it may be due to the inertia of earlier times (in India the art of following the herd was perfected ... insert a laughing emoji However , PSUs are evolving rapidly and may offer a better overall lifestyle, the comparison needs an in-depth analysis.

  1. SALARY: This is why no one works in the first place. Its primus inter pares of the reasons to work. With the data of 7 CPCs, at the same level it can be roughly said that the best UPMs such as ONGC, GAIL, IOCL offer at least 1.5 times the gross annual salary of the central government scale. The PRP performance-related salary and cafeteria allowance (35%) play an important role in this regard. Also, the basic is generally more for the PSU, further increasing the pay gap. In general, the Gross salary of the level of incorporation of a participant in the PSU of Maharatna would be 1.5 times of his counterpart in IES. This difference increases up to 2 times as you go up the ladder. In my comparison, I have used the gross salary and not the available salary because the organization has to pay out the total gross salary. Another thing is that taxes are deducted on that and in the hand it is less.

2. Position in the hierarchy at the entry level: Government organizations are generally at the bottom. In some cases, an ese / central government. The recruit can have 1000 employees reporting directly and indirectly to him. As a result, you feel good and job satisfaction is better. Also, new hires from SSC / RRB etc are extremely talented and can perform complex tasks on their own. For psus, the trend is to become a leaner organization. In some power supply units, you can be the lowest in the hierarchy when joining. However, the highest ESE and PSU levels are almost similar in range.

3.Power, miscellaneous benefit, etc .: in ESE most of the employees get vehicle, stenographer, laborer, staff, driver, help, etc., especially in organizations like railways from entry level Their name is published in the newsletter central by virtue of which they can attest to documents, certificates of character, etc. At PSU generally people at the board level get cars and similar paraphernalia, etc. and field-level managers obtain vehicles. who are president of the coordinating committee.

4. Career progression: I believe that if you work hard in any organization you can rise to the top. In this particular aspect, central government promotions are mainly based strictly on age / seniority from now on. In psu it can be said that it is based on merit with seniority. As a general rule of thumb, with 30 years of service for both that and psu, they get a seniority advantage of around 7-10 years. AS get an additional advantage of around 10 years. best chance to be ceo, cmd, etc. from railway companies or other companies. However, many large USPs also offer similar opportunities because they have a larger number of subsidiaries, of which top management is selected from among the employees themselves.

5.Residence / Quarter / Bungalows / HRA: Some of the services in ESE like railways / month, etc. They offer large palatial bungalows with grass / greenery and a large campus, almost from entry level. However, many services like cpes, cpwd, cwc, etc. they have a shortage of government accommodation. Also, their quaters are very common. In PSU the rooms are smaller but they can be with better furniture, interiors and maintenance. However, PSU offers HRA more easily and they can pay for floor emi with HRA. In addition, the ease of leasing by psu is a game changer in favor of psus.

6. Rights on tour and travel: PSU offers better facilities to its employees on tour. For example, the General Manager and superior of a PSU is entitled to a presidential suite in a 5-star hotel on the basis of actual cost. Very few central / ese government employees get that kind of facility. Most have to make use of an ordinary rest house, etc. To understand it better, you need to understand that government finances are more strictly controlled than psus (probably because psus have their own money, they are making a profit). like the railroads, they also do not offer air travel except for top management. In addition, the opportunity to tour and travel abroad is more in the PSU than in the government.

7. Job Safety: For all practical purposes, both jobs are fully insured. There are some apprehensions that the government will reduce its stake below 51% in some USPs. It may result in the loss of some job, however, for now, both are very safe.

8. Service to the nation: Almost all applicants when asked in a PCU interview, etc., respond that they are joining the services to serve the country. It is far from the truth because all psu can be proven to offer a wide scope and opportunity to serve the nation. For ex. Scientists change the lives of millions of people without ever touching or interacting with one.

If you've made it this far, you can see that there is a rather difficult relationship between the best psus services and the best. The last reason that probably tips the balance is:

9. The eternal Human Greed or the intention to obtain an undue advantage / QUID PRO QUO for official acts. Corruption is rampant in all sectors. People believe that being in government opens doors to possibilities. Corruption is prevalent even in psus, but especially in the upper echelons. Although no one mentions it, subconsciously, society feeds it in the minds of young students.

GAURAV KUMAR, IES Hello everyone, My name is Gaurav Kumar. I did my B.Tech from IIT Kharagpur in mechanical engineering. Then, I worked at NTPC, I cracked GATE (I also converted final offers for GAIL and IOCL) with AIR 50 and ESE with AIR 29. Currently I am working in Railways. This channel provides information to aspiring engineers regarding ESE, GATE, PSU and other engg exams of all branches. Discussion about the future of engineers, job prospects and career guidance. Help provide the right direction and guidance to aspirants to realize their dream of the BEST JOBS from all streams of engineering. This channel is also for those who are preparing for competitive / college exams in mechanical engineering.

Warning: I am only on probation, I am new to the system so this is all I have understood.
It is part of technical work and part of management. You are responsible for production and a large staff is assigned to get things done. They tell us that the hours are quite hectic, where they often call you at 2 in the morning or on weekends, but of course there are posts that are not that demanding. Aside from what Sanjay Nandan said, sir, mechanical engineers are also responsible for rolling stock production (I am a mechanical engineer and can't miss the opportunity to brag).

What I think Railways has is different from many other departments is that it is one of the departments that has to produce tangible services. If some officer is negligent, the train may not show up at the train station, consumer complaints may get bogged down, or worse, an accident may occur. Therefore, you have the great responsibility on your shoulders, not only for your actions, but also for your subordinates (sometimes also those of Boss) and that, too timely, since punctuality is essential here. This combination of responsibility and demanding work hours often disappoints officers, as private companies offer much higher pay for the same job. Often,

As an officer here I see considerable autonomy, service to the nation even if it is limited to trains, timely promotions, good bungalows, nice guest houses almost everywhere in India, traveling on trains with confirmed mooring (almost always) and the respect that did you receive. from polite guys (who don't criticize at least to my face), etc., etc.

And yes, there is less political pressure compared to other services, except in the confirmation of reservations or contracts. But again, there is a huge internal policy to get coveted positions and transfers.

This is a question worth answering, as different people have different perspectives on choosing jobs.

If you see that the companies mentioned above are all good companies and even many people dream of getting a job in one of them.

If you look at it from the salary point of view: then I would prefer IOCL and ONGC instead of choosing IES because IOCL and ONGC are the Maharatna companies whose salary for Freshers starts at 11-14 Lacs pa, while IES qualified engineers will manage to get 7 -9 Lacs pa initially. Not only in the salary field, but the facilities provided by these companies are good enough for me.

Not only on the salary arena, but the facilities these companies offer are good enough to support a high-profile lifestyle.

But if you want to work directly with the PRESIDENT OF INDIA, you can opt for IES. The salary scale for newbies in IES is comparatively lower than that of IOCL and ONGC, but it will have its own dignity and it will be honored everywhere as it will work for the nation and that also under the presidency and that is a matter of pride. Each and every possible facility will be provided to you along with the reimbursement of all your expenses arising from the fact that you will use less your salary, which will act as a savings for your future. (Also, this government makes separate savings for you that will be provided to you after your retirement)

And the most important thing about choosing IES is that you will be associated with the INDIA emblem that includes the three roaring lions. Your car will have the emblem that you do not need to stop at any toll gates or places where there are restrictions for the general public that you will not get after joining the Maharatna companies. The following are the facilities provided to an IES officer:

  • Residential rooms (Type IV to Type VIII) OR HRA
  • Official vehicle
  • Shortage of Living Subsidy
  • CGHS Medical Center
  • Leave the travel allowance / travel allowance
  • Gratification
  • Provident fund (where IDA applies)
  • Leave collection
  • Personal assistant
  • Driver
  • Pawn
  • Domestic servant

Now it is only the perspective, which will help you choose the profession. Otherwise, all work is good! *

The answer to this question totally depends on what someone needs without work. They both have pros and cons.
If you get a job through IES in railways and a Department says Electrical Maintenance, you can be happy that you can do a lot to improve the lighting system, whereas if someone gets a job in an ordinance factory and hates plant culture, then you will feel that I can't do much to improve and have the same daily factory life and remote publishing.

Let's consider another scenario: if you get a job in one of Maharatna's power supply units and get a position in the engineering design department or in a corporate office.

Let's consider another scenario: If you get a job in one of Maharatna's power supply units and get a position in the engineering design department or corporate office, you may feel that it is for the best. Publication in the metropolitan city more salary than the IES official. Let us consider the opposite situation. As we know, most power supply units are located in remote locations and force new entrants to be located in plants. So despite a good salary, you have no stores to buy even the basic things.
So it completely depends on your department and place of publication.

There are few concrete differences that can play a crucial role.

1. PSUs pay more than the central government
2. PSUs do not grant published positions
3. IIE officers have more power and more manpower at their disposal than
PSU engineers.
4. Promotion to a lower level is faster in PSUs than in HEI officers.
5. If you want less responsibility and more money, power supplies are the best and if you want more power and respect, go for IES.


There are countless reasons I can say for both. Few of my friends are happy at PSUs, few are sad. Some friends at IES are glad they regret leaving PSUs. So it's very subjective.

All the people in my service, who left their comfortable job at PSU, are sorry. But still knowing (presumably) everything, they left and joined here. Some even worked for 4-5 years on a power supply before switching to the railways, where they have to start from scratch. The opposite case is hardly seen.
They often lament that

  1. The salary has been cut in half.
  2. Living conditions and the quality of food are degrading.
  3. The allowance for laptops has been drastically reduced (on railways only 25000rs, where as in ONGC, NTPC is 65000 and also prepaid)
  4. They were much better cared for there.
  5. The working conditions were MUCH better.

  4. They were much better cared for there.
  5. The working conditions were MUCH better.


But they still chose the railways. The reason is often asked when we meet our elders. They, often frustrated with the system, ask why the hell did he leave his previous job. The answer given by them is usually on the lines of

  1. Respect and recognition.
  2. Autonomy.
  3. More people under control.
  4. Chance to soar higher.
  5. You can always migrate to higher grade power supplies.
  6. Central work of the central government

People leave the railroads all the time. Some migrate to the USPs and never return, some take a well-paid private job, some teach at a foreign or Indian university.

So I guess the answer is up to you. What do you want?
There will be pros and cons in every job and people speak highly and humbly about every type of job. My advice is that you try to be happy where you are. If not, then climb the ladder to know that this is not ALL you imagined it to be!

ONGC is among the highest paid USPs in India, while IES is an official central government publication.

IES or ONGC / Maharatna PSU

Which would be the ideal choice differs from person to person. In PSU, you will get:

  1. Better salary compared to IES.
  2. Better benefits (up to 35%) compared to IES.
  3. In terms of lifestyle, compared to the railways, you will have more family time at PSU. Generally, in other departments, you will get more work-life balance at HEI.

Even more people prefer IES over PSU because:

  1. You'll gain more power, authority, and responsibility from day one.
  2. You will get more respect in society.

How's life?

This is very subjective. Everyone experiences a different level of satisfaction, a completely different life.

You are very sought after after the selection and you also get a lot of attention, but everything goes back to normal soon. Later in your career, you are noticed for your sincerity, integrity, temperament, zeal, contribution to public service, and nothing else.

I belong to "Indian Telecom Service (ITS)". We spent 2 years of probation comprising classroom and field training. We also had the opportunity to call the Honorable President and Vice President of India.

  • Normal working hours: 9:30 a.m. M. At 6 p. M. The weekend is free but you cannot leave the station without prior permission. In an emergency, we must get to the workplace as soon as possible.
  • The work is techno-managerial and areas of work include data analysis, networks, network / cyber security, BTS EMF radiation audit, telecom service provider network audit, rural internet / telecom connectivity, illegal setup removal telecommunications, new telecommunications technologies, etc. Internet Service Providers ”obtain a license from the Department of Telecommunications / DoT to provide business services to citizens. We enforce and ensure that all service providers operate their business in accordance with DoT guidelines and earn revenue without jeopardizing the public interest.
  • The promotions are reasonably good. ITS officers reach the level of GM / DDG in 18-22 years, which is a SAG position (equivalent to Chief Engineer in Indian Railways).
  • The publication is mainly done in state capitals / major cities that offer a good quality of life. This is an important aspect for many officers.
  • Able to reconcile work and family life.
  • The vehicle is available for official work. In case it is not available, we will be reimbursed OLA / UBER.
  • Newly recruited officers earn a gross salary of 84 lakhs, and a hand-held salary of 72 lakhs (major cities). You have reasonable purchasing power, but you cannot be extravagant.
  • There is broad social respect. If you are active, informed, up-to-date, assertive, and flexible, you also earn official respect. This improves the level of satisfaction.
  • Medical facilities (CGHS facilities) in major hospitals are available to officers and dependents. There is no limit on medical expenses. You are fully covered, even after retirement.
  • The job is more or less secure, but there is an imminent need for upgrading and retraining in order to build up substantial portfolios. Officers are diverted for unsatisfactory performance. Government forces 129 'non-compliant' officers to retire in public interest
  • It is important to focus on contributing to the public good and, most importantly, taking pride in your work. An officer must always be alert.
  • There are days when we are optimistic and days when we feel stuck. You need to learn and approach the situation wisely, without getting angry or frustrated. The emotional quotient is equally, sometimes even more important than the intelligence quotient.
  • Many people compare your service with other services and criticize it. I really do compare, definitely, but your goal is to adopt best practices and improve.

Very good question, all the engineers have dreamed of this type of PSU and I have also dreamed of PSU of high advantages, BT, one thing I want to clarify is that I did a lot of research during my preparation days because it gives me a lot of motivation, so yes you feel depressed during prep days, ask these kinds of questions ... Do some research and you'll feel good after knowing how much PSU invested in your employees ...

Do some research for yourself ...
