Which is the best government job in India that most people don't know about?

The best government job in India today is the job of a Faculty in an IIT or IIM.

Few people know that the Faculty not only gets perks and promotions at par with IAS, IPS, IRS etc. but they get so many other benefits which no civil servants in India gets.

I am reproducing some of the benefits which are not available even to the top civil servants in India, as published on the website of IIM Indore


2. Leave Rules of the Institute

Casual Leave – 8 days per annum.

Restricted Holidays – 2 days per annum.

Half Pay Leave – 20 days per annum.

Vacation Leave – 60 days of vacation per year. However, faculty members can avail vacation to a maximum of 30 days at a time (except summer vacation) and are encouraged to take summer vacation between 15th April and 1st June. (NOT AVAILABLE TO CIVIL SERVANTS)


4.1 Faculty Development Allowance (FDA):

Reimbursement of an amount up to Rs.100,000/- per annum for items like purchase of books, periodicals; or datasets for research purpose, attending national level conferences/ workshops/ seminars/courses etc.

Faculty member can use FDA to plan for international visits. FDA funds can be used for travel, stay and visa expenses related to such visits.

4.2 Full funding, once a year, to attend one international conference as per institutional norms. (MOST CIVIL SERVANTS VISIT ABROAD 4–5 TIMES ONLY IN THEIR CAREER)

4.3 Full funding to attend and present papers in national conferences.

4.4 A faculty member can do consulting for 52 days a year. The Director may, at his discretion, extend this beyond 52 days. (THIS IS AN EXTRA SOURCE OF INCOME FOR PROFESSORS WHILE CIVIL SERVANTS ARE PROHIBITED TO DO ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL WORK)

There are even more additional benefits to Professors like-

Low work pressure
Lesser working hours
Higher retirement age
Stability of life (no transfer/posting)
Excellent accommodation in the campus
I don’t think there is any better government job in India than this.

Most people, however, don’t know about these jobs.
