First of all, I want to tell you, An IAS officer salary is so good than an ordinary corporate employee. That means, an talented CEO, manager, auditor can make 10 times more money than an IAS officer.
In private sector everything is in your hand. The more you ready to put effort and keep learning new skills, you get more chance to earn more.
But for a civil servant (IAS officer, IPS, IRS, IES etc), the salary is fixed, according the constitution of India.
But that’s not bad at all, with a lots of prestige comes along with the civil servant tag, being a civil servant is more prestigious than to be CEO of a private company in many cases.
