Top Government Jobs in India

Here's a list of the best government jobs in India;

Civil Services Job:

One of the most respected and well paid jobs in the Indian government is undoubtedly Civil services. The respect and prestige that actually comes with the services like the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Foreign Service (IFS) are unmatched to any job in the private sector. These jobs form the steel frame of the Indian administration.

Those who want to join the civil services have to clear the UPSC exam, which is held every year. At present, there are many coaching centres as well as institutes that help in preparing for the UPSC exams. Not only this, if you want then you can do your preparation online also. So don’t waste time thinking of what to do after completing your graduation. Join Civil services!!!

PSU Jobs:

Jobs in public sector undertakings or PSUs such as Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), ONGC, NTPC limited, GAIL, MTNL etc are really very good options. The public sector undertakings provide their employees with numerous benefits apart from good salary. Moreover, the work pressure is not too much in this sector. The public sector undertakings employ on a large scale every year through different competitive exams. Hence if you want to join PSUs then you need to keep an eye on employment newspaper or online websites like sarkarinaukri.com etc. 

State Public Service Commission:

The jobs offered by State Public Service Commissions are quite similar to that of civil services. The State Public Service Commission carries out PSC exams and then recruits applicants for various administrative posts in the State. For example - Andhra Pradesh public service commission, Arunachal Pradesh public service commission, Bihar public service commission invites application for several posts, time to time. Many state government jobs like RTO, MRO are paid very well and come with added benefits like official residence, medical facilities.

Defence Services - Army, Navy, Coast guard:

Defence service job is another great option for people who want to do something for the country. Everyone may not like to join this field but believe me entering the National Defence Academy (NDA) is the best choice, if you are looking for a reputable and well paid job. This job provides an aspirant with the opportunity to enter into the Indian Navy, Army and Air Force. Good pay, official government residence, medical facilities are some of the benefits provided by this job.

Government Lecturer or University Professors:

If you like teaching or have some interest in it then becoming a government college lecturer will be the best choice. They not only get good salary but a number of holidays too. In addition, the working timings are also lesser in colleges and universities as compared to other government jobs. So what else you want.  After completing your masters you can become a university professor or lecturer by just clearing the UGC NET Exams, conducted twice a year – June and December.

Railway Engineers:

India has many students with an engineering degree. But due to lack of correct guidance and knowledge these people don’t know which sector is best for them. If you have done engineering then you must give a thought of becoming a railway engineer and be a part of Indian Railways. Railway engineers enjoy many things like – free travelling, good residence and excellent pay provided by the government of India.

Banking jobs

Bank Jobs:

Banks are almost in every small and big part of the country. It is one of the most wanted jobs in the country. These days IBPS recruits a number of graduates every year for various banks like Allahabad Bank, Indian Bank, Oriental Bank of Commerce. State Bank of India also recruits candidates almost every year for different positions.  The basic eligibility criterion to enter the banking sector is - a university degree in any subject with basic computer knowledge. Hence it is one of the most preferred options by young people all over the country.

Government Doctors:

Government doctors in institutions like the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), Safdarjung hospital, G.B. Pant Hospital etc are highly respectable and well known by everyone. And to work in such reputed government hospitals itself, is an honour.  Government doctors get good salary and also a genuine opportunity to serve the poor.  The job demand of doctors in both private as well government sector is very high.


Scientists are the people who bring changes for welfare of the people and the country on the whole. ISRO, DRDO are some of the respected and well-known institutions which are run by government scientists. The salary of a government scientist is either equivalent or sometimes even better than the private ones. Perks like individual houses for accommodation, medical insurance etc are some of the benefits associated with this particular job. The work pressure no doubt is little high as the job is very much demanding. But the benefits they get are all worth it.

Insurance Sector Jobs:

Last but not the least, jobs in insurance sector like the LIC, GIC etc are also very well-paid. Life Insurance Corporation or General Insurance Corporation of India generally recruits people for positions like AAO, ADO, SO and so on.  The salary they offer is well in proportion to the perks provided. LIC of India, National Insurance Co. Ltd. etc recruits thousands of graduates every year. All you need to apply for the job is - a university degree.
