District Collector - How to become a District Collector?

Advertisements

The District Collector is a bureaucrat of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS). They are responsible for the entire district of a State. Besides this, they are also the most influential government executives of the region. They are recruited by the Central Government of India. It is their task to handle the law and order of that particular district, collect the revenue and taxation. He/she is also in charge of the planning permission as well as the managing of man-made and natural crisis.

Qualifying Exam

The students who aspire to become District Collector are required to write the Civil Services examination that is carried out by the Union Public Service Commission. The exam has three parts.  They are: Preliminary exam, Main exam and Interview. The advertisement for this exam will be proclaimed in all leading employment news papers. They will also be displayed in the authorized website of the respective State PSC.

Who is eligible to apply?

Students who are appearing in this examination are required to be permanent residents of India. They are supposed to be atleast 21 years when they apply. The minimum qualification required for the candidates to apply is a graduate degree from any background. Those who are writing their final year exams are also eligible to appear for the PSC exam. The candidates have an option to appear for the exam 4 times. (7 times for OBC candidates and no limit for those of the SC/ST category)

How to prepare for exam and interview?

The candidates need to be well informed on all aspects of the society. They can prepare themselves by reading newspapers or watching news channels.  Another good option is to read books on general knowledge and social science a lot. As the paper will include questions on vocabulary, comprehension, essay as well as précis writing, a good command over the English language is necessary. The interview is carried out for testing the personality of the aspirant. So, at this time, they must answer in a truthful and unbiased manner. It would also help if the aspirant takes  a minute before replying. This will give them time to think over an answer.
