IAS is a word in which along with power, prestige, respect, responsibility and discipline, there is a combination of many such things which attracts every section of the society towards itself. Seeing this, some people also start IAS preparation and fulfil their dream by cracking India’s toughest exams like UPSC.
However, more responsibility, accountability and sometimes political pressure makes this service so challenging that your small mistake can lead to heavy action. Just yesterday, the news was published in the newspaper in which the recommendation to suspend Nidhi Kesarwari, a 2004 batch IAS officer, has been recommended by the Uttar Pradesh government.
Orders have also been issued for departmental action and IAS officer Nidhi Kesarwani is accused of having done land scam in Delhi-Meerut and Eastern Peripheral Expressway during her tenure as DM of Ghaziabad. What was this scam, and why did it happen, on a different issue, under which rule do the state governments suspend an IAS officer, when we asked retired IAS officer Rohit Nandan sir, he said that the state government should be able to suspend any IAS officer.
It can suspend the officer as it comes under his jurisdiction.
