Why is the response so lukewarm?Recently Govt showed it's intention to hire some of the Joint Secretaries/ Secretaries directly from outside to function in a better way.
Normally it is the prerogative of IAS officers to occupy these coveted seats.
Accordingly, the Govt advertised these posts for open competition to all the professionals in our country but the response is not as good as was envisaged.
As per the news in the media, so far only about 4000 applications are received as against the anticipated figure of about 1 lakh.
Why this lukewarm response?
