Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council (EAC-PM) member Sanjeev Sanyal has said that lakhs of students prepare for civil services examination for five to eight years, it is actually a waste of youth energy. Sanyal said that if someone wants to become an administrator then he should try for UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) or other such examinations. It is absolutely fine to attempt UPSC or other such exams, but only if the person wants to become an administrator. Sanyal has written on X, the problem is that lakhs of youth are taking five to eight years to pass this examination. He made this a way of life. It is really a waste of youthful energy. This may be surprising, but most bureaucrats agree with his opinion. His thinking is also the same. These are the people who passed the exam at some point of time.

The economist said that an entire industry, in fact an entire city like Kota, is linked to the preparation of an exam. Whereas less than one percent of these applicants will be successful. And this is happening every year. Imagine what the results would be if this huge effort were deployed in other areas.

Former bureaucrats described Sanyal’s comments as absurd:
Former bureaucrats have described Sanjeev Sanyal’s comments as absurd and avoidable. On Sanyal’s comments, former IAS officer G Sundaram said, this is absurd. India is a vast country. We are interested in a united India and that is why Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, (the first Home Minister of independent India) created other services like the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and the Indian Police Service (IPS). It’s all working fine. There may be some shortcomings which can definitely be improved. Sundaram, a 1962 batch IAS officer of Gujarat cadre, has retired as Tourism Secretary. Sundaram said, his (Sanyal’s) comments were completely avoidable.

At the same time, former Secretary of the Department of Personnel and Training SK Sarkar said that Sanyal’s statement could have been avoided. This is not a waste of youth energy or resources. The 1979 batch IAS officer of West Bengal cadre said, I do not agree with his claim. Many people aspire to be a part of government services. These are the best services of India to contribute to nation building and development. His comments could have been avoided.

On the other hand, former IAS officer Sanjeev Chopra said that Sanyal has the right to express his views, but criticizing the youth who aspire to become civil servants is not a good thing. Not everyone aspires to be an Ambani. People also want to become poets, painters and actors. Many people want to work for the government.
