" Be Good and Do Good "
We can't make any comment on the decision of an individual. It is his life and he will decide based on his own interest. An IAS officer has to work under a minister only. That means people without any qualifications will decide what an IAS officer has to do. These days income levels of politicians are much higher than that of IAS officers. Ministers will have many facilities that an IAS officer. These may also make political lucrative.
Once you are an MLA/MPs will get life long pension if you serve as MP/MLA for 5 years.
