Indian Engineering Services contain engineers who work under the government of India and assigned as Class – 1 officer. They control a vast fragment of general public sector economy, which constitutes of Indian Railways, Power, Telecommunications, Central Water building, Defense administration of Engineers, Central Engineering Service, and so forth. The idea of work performed by these civil servants to a great extent largely depends on their engineering branch and the service or cadre they are recruited in. The career progression goes easily accomplishing high regard. The primary position offered is that of Asst. Official designer and the hierarchy ends at the position of Chairman/ Managing Director.
A combined competitive examination is directed by the Union Public Services Commission (UPSC) for recruitment to the Indian Engineering Services.
