5 Best Jobs For Women in Indian Government Sector


When you hear “Government job”, the principal thing that strikes in your brain is a picture of a man wearing a white shirt, sitting in a chair and doing 9 to 5 work. This was the meaning of a government job to many decades ago. But now, the perception of people towards public sector employments has changed a lot. Jobs in Indian public sector have now become the most desired jobs due to the security and high salary they offer.

Pay After 7th Pay Commission

With the approval of the 7th pay commission, the salaries of central and state government employees have gained a great hike. The compensation of employees are way higher than few years back, and also there is an increase in benefits offered to them. But, getting a government job is no simpler. There are a lot of openings, but the competition for them is intense, and you need to prepare yourself really well before appearing for any such exam.

  1. I am really very young but I wanna be a army officer and at present I have to choose a subject as I am in class 11th and i am very confused what should i choose…can u please suggest me something

    • Hi Aprajita, the first criteria for Indian defence sector jobs is height, we are considering that you meet the height criteria. If you want to become an army officer. You have to clear the CDS Exam that requires graduation as a minimum qualification. To apply for Indian Air Force you need a degree from a recognized University (with Physics and Mathematics at 10+2 level), whereas for Army you need a bachelor’s degree form a recognized university. We are discussing CDS, because NDA has no girl’s entry.

      The CDS exam includes three sections, Elementary Mathematics, General Knowledge, and English. Therefore, it is preferable that you take Mathematics as one of the subjects. It could be Physics, Chemistry and Maths (PCM) or Maths with any subject of your interest. We suggest PCM because Air Force and Navy demand PCM candidates, while Army prefers all stream candidates.

      The decision remains with you. Let us know if you have any more concerns.

    • Hi Lakshmi,

      If your husband and in-laws don’t mind you preparing for the CSIR NET exam and are supportive then its all about time management. Take out hours to study, even a few hours a day are enough when you already have appeared and where so close to selection. During day time the ideal time for you to study would be when your baby is sleeping, add 2 hours every afternoon or night. Start with previous papers to know the new exam pattern, appear for a few mock tests to analyze your present skills and that will give you a right start. Write to us if you have more questions.

      Stay tuned, Subscribe, follow us on Facebook. We will soon publish a post on vacancies for Botany Postgraduates.
