“Why do people prefer IAS?” a CA wrote as a part of his post, where he compared the salary structure of his profession with that of IAS.

A post by a chartered accountant (CA) has sparked a debate on X. In his post, he wrote that he fails to understand why people choose the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) over CA despite the latter having a higher salary range. While many opposed his post, citing that IAS is about “power and respect”, a few supported his stand.

“A cousin of mine preparing for UPSC said he wanted power. I don't understand what he would do with power,” commented a fourth.

“Software Engineers, CAs, consultants, etc, all make much more than an IAS. Also, get to work on much more intriguing stuff, but society will make you think you are missing out on something if you're not an IAS,” tweeted a fifth.

“That's the basics. With allowances, it'll be double that. Then the power and respect that come with it,” wrote a sixth.
