What Is the Total Starting Salary of an IAS ?

You know that the government employees also get other salary components like D.A., H.R.A. etc along with the basic salary. Let us calculate the starting salary of a trainee IAS.

You need to keep it in mind that total pay can change later because with the change of Dearness Allowance (D.A.). At the moment, the total payment of an IAS recruit will be like that: -

  • Basic Pay: Rs 56,100
  • D.A. (@ 17%): Rs 9,537
  • Total: Rs 65,637 (as according to the latest central D.A.)

A trainee is not entitled to other allowances and perks.The basic pay will increase at a rate of 3% per year and the amount of D.A. will also increase accordingly. Usually the D.A. increases with the rise of inflation. So, the salary use to increase each year.

The Maximum Salary

Among all the IAS officers, the Cabinet Secretary gets the highest scale. The basic is Rs. 2,50,000 per month.

The total pay will be like that:

  • Base Pay: Rs 2,50,000
  • D.A.(@17%): Rs 42,500
  • Total: Rs 2,92,500

So the maximum salary of an IAS officer is Rs. 3.51 million per year.

Other Facilities and Perks

Salary is not the be-all and end-all of IAS. They get many other facilities too. Those are like these:-

  • Officers are often given superb accommodation for very low rent like a big bungalow with its own security guards, gardeners, servants, and cooks usually in the prime locations.
  • An IAS officer gets chauffeur operated government cars, usually with blue beacons.
  • They often gets free or highly subsided electricity and phone bill reimbursements.
  • Some officers get personal bodyguards.
  • During official travel for duty, IAS officers get accommodation in very good government bungalows and rest houses.
  • Free BSNL broadband connection.
  • Job security is one of the best perks of this service. In fact, it is very, very difficult even for a chief minister to terminate an IAS officer’s job since they are protected by legal safeguards.
  • IAS officers can apply for a study leave for 2 to 4 years in a reputable foreign university, the cost of which will be borne by the government.
  • Postings in a PSU (Public Service Undertaking) could have its own special perks and benefits.
  • IAS officers can get lucrative deputation posts in Intergovernmental organizations like United Nations or World Bank etc which gives high salary with foreign posting.
  • Seniors sometimes chosen as a part of a delegation team usually led by a minister to go abroad for free. They are treated as VIPs in those foreign countries.
  • Free healthcare for self and family.
  • Like other central government employees they also get the Children's Education Allowance for maximum two children up to Rs 6750 per month for each.
  • Retirement benefits and post retirement high paying postings.

The most valuable perks of being an IAS officer is the power and prestige. A member of the service is treated as a VIP everywhere in India. Things which are too difficult or cumbersome for others to do would be a cakewalk for them. Places which are inaccessible to others could be opened for them.

Moreover, an IAS officer is behind the formation and implementation of the policies of the central and various state governments. There is immense scope of helping millions of people by using the power associated with it.

abhishek on November 11, 2016:

I don't think that thinking about salary and perks of an officer or making these things as a way of your motivation can take you to any position where you can qualify for such prestigious exam.I mean think about it ;it's one of the toughest and preparation of these exam is going to take you to your knees.So you need something very big as a reason why u want to qualify this exam..

i need to become an ias officer but what are the abilities in ias

Siddhartha S Bhadrakumar from India on June 07, 2016:

I'm not denying any of this which might or mightn't be true but it's necessary to keep certain other facts in mind as well. Namely I remember reading in the Indian press that study leave abroad has been banned in the I.A.S because many officers have deserted that way whilst going abroad to pursue higher studies, namely to America. The result is that the remaining crowd are quite overworked. If the I.A.S. is all that great I think it's not presumptous to ask why is this happening?

amrit432 on June 07, 2016:

Dear Friends ,

As all of you know the after the approval of 7th pay Commission from parliament the salary of all officers will be increases and also

salary of an IAS officer increases

and

the highest salary of an IAS officer would be ₹ 2,40,000 (fixed) and starting level salary would be ₹50,000 .

Cabinate secetary salary ₹2,70,000/- (fixed)

So who want to be an IAS start peparing very hard because competition going to be tough .

Sudeshna Dasgupta on June 06, 2016:

The job of an IAS officer is very prestigious and sometimes salary doesn't matter . Still they get decent salary.

abhishek kumar on May 21, 2016:

Indrajitsingh9Indrajitsingh91 on May 11, 2016:

I don't understand why ppl compare IAS salary with top private sector jobs?

Everyone should know that marne key baad paisa rakhkar hi jaana padega aur itna paisa rakh kar apne future generation ko aalsi bana rahe ho.

Give them the power to stand in their feet by their own strength.Coz baap ke paisey sab akadtey hai par khud karney par jo feel hota hai na u wont understand.

That's why i want to be an IAS n serve for the nation.

This time I earn 68000 a month, with facilities like easy low cost loans, free petrol, free internet, free telephone, Housing loan at very easy interest rates. I was thinking about IAS . Looking above I may change my mind soon, I guess.

There is no such case as security is not needed, why should I cover myself with police all the time. Be free, Live free, Live life, and give charity without letting people notice what you do..IAS is just a craze..huva

Truth on December 07, 2014:

Guys,it is commendable that you want to be IAS. It is a worthy goal. But if you just want to be IAS for power, it is not the most powerful position. Currently judges are most powerful among government servants. I have seen IAS DM and IPS SP standing outside minister's bedroom like peons in govt. rest house. However ministers stand up when a judge comes because since judiciary is independent, minister can't do anything to judge but adverse decision by a judge can cause a minister to lose position.
