    The number of entries into centrally sponsored IAS-level jobs barely crossed the 6,000 mark as the deadline for applications ended on Monday at 5PM, reported News18.

    The number of entries into centrally sponsored IAS-level jobs barely crossed the 6,000 mark as the deadline for applications ended on Monday at 5PM, reported News18.
    However, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) officials said that at least one lakh applications before the deadline were expected.
    On June 10, the government invited applications for private sector professionals for ten joint secretary-level posts through lateral entry as opposed to the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examinations.
    A notification issued by the DoPT said that the government of India has decided to invite talented and motivated Indian nationals willing to contribute towards nation building to join the government at the level of joint secretary.
    The government has given examples of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and ex-deputy chairman of the then Planning Commission, Montek Singh Ahluwalia, as those who joined the government through the “lateral entry” process at various ranks, reported News 18.
