Difference between IAS Officer and PCS Officer

The President of India appoints IAS officer, whereas, PCS officers are given appointment by the Governor for the state services.

IAS officers are recruited through All India Civil Services Examination managed by Union Public Service Commission, whereas, PCS officers are recruited by State Civil Services examination managed by State Public Service Commission (SPSC).

In IAS exam, more emphasis is given on conceptual questions rather than factual, whereas, the case is vice-versa in terms of PCS exam.

Only Union Govt. more specifically President is authorized to terminate service of an IAS officers, whereas, the State Govt. has full right to suspend, transfer or terminate a PCS officer.

Career of an IAS officer may start from SDM and can be promoted to District Collector within 5 to 7 years of his/her job. On the other hand, the promotion of a PCS officer is quite slower than an IAS officer.

This is all about the major differences between an IAS officer and a PCS officer. Now, let’s talk about various posts under state PCS from the top rank to the lowest rank.
