  • Many aspirants have doubts regarding what to fill up in “Preference order” for the SSC-CGL job application?
  • So, following information should help you get some idea.
  • Please note: I’ve not written this article all by myself. Most of this stuff is copypasted from the inputs given by some serving officers and pagalguy members, including csl180, prince1 and others.
  • If you want to add update /correction / elaboration regarding these jobs, please do post your inputs in comments at the bottom of this article.


First thing you must decide: Do you want a…

Desk job or Field job?

Desk job

Field job

  • Assistants, Auditors, Accountants, Tax-assistants, upper division clerks.
  • Inspectors (income tax, excise, preventive officers, examiners), CBI, narcotics etc.
  • No physical standard (height, chest, weight)
  • The working hours of desk job are “fixed”. (in most cases, except Assistant (cypher).
  • It’s like office to home, home to office.
  • So if your ultimate aim is preparing for some other exam (UPSC/CAT etc) then these are the “right” jobs because of the “City –posting” (Delhi or some State HQ).
  • Field jobs involve travelling, carrying out raids, inspections, surveillance etc.
  • Sometimes you might need to work in non-office hours or even Sundays.
  • Less than field job (at the initial level).
  • Social status, nuisance power of field job is higher compared of desk job.
  • I mean, in terms of impressing your parents, siblings, friends, college-batchmates, relatives in your village and girlfriend and her parents.
  • Peace of mind.
  • Office-to-home, home-to-office.
  • Hardly any transfers. (except MEA assistant)
  • comfortable for family and social life.
  • (some of these) Jobs involve stress, dealing with informants, power-brokers, pressure-tactics, backstabbing bastards (within your department).
  • Almost all of these jobs involve transfer from one city to another.
  • Therefore family/social life=little bit of trouble.
  • No uniform
  • No weapons.
  • No adventure.
  • Includes uniform (some jobs), weapons training
  • Some adventure (raids etc) although nothing very “dangerous”. (For Dangerous stuff you’ve to apply for CDS or CAPF).
  • So first decide-what do you want: Desk job or Field job?
  • Second Question: do you want to permanently shift to Delhi or not? Because If you don’t want to shift to Delhi, then job of Assistant in CSS and various Central Ministries=useless for you.
  • Similarly, if you don’t want to leave India, then MEA assistant =useless.

Now, we’ll see the Desk jobs, and in the later part of the article, we’ll see the Field jobs.


They’re of two types

  1. Central Secretariat services (CSS)
  1. Other than CSS (e.g. Assistant in railways, Election Commission, coast guard etc.)

Assistants: Promotion opportunities

  1. Assistant (you join here)
  2. Section Officer (Group B Gazetted). To become SO, you have to pass departmental test, conducted by UPSC. If you don’t pass exam, you get promotion very late (after 10-12 years).
  3. Under Secretary
  4. Deputy Secretary
  5. Joint Secretary.

CSS (Assistant in Central Secretariat Service)

Job code Name Salary
A Assistant in Central Secretariat Service (CSS) Pay Band –II f 9300-34800GP 4600

Assistant (CSS): Work Profile

  • Work=files, files and files and then more files.
  • But 3 hrs of work daily: from answering RTI of people to Cabinet note making to answering parliament questions to working on daily receipts
  • It is like you’re given the project, and you made the dealing hand. Now report the problem in short about the project and tell your recommendations on what can be done.
  • If your seniors like they will accept it or else they will tell their own decisions etc=this is CSS work.

Promotion speed: CSS vs other Assistants

  • In CSS, the promotion from Assistant to Section Officer, you have vacancies like 200 , 250 etc
  • In other places like MEA or railways you’ll have 5 ,10 etc.so promotions are faster in CSS.

Work diversity: CSS vs Other assistants

  • If you become Assistant in say Railways, then you’re stuck in Railways forever.
  • But CSS offers you wider variety of postings like in Ministry of consumer affairs, home, finance, education, civil aviation, law etc.
  • Therefore, your scope and work-diversity is huge. (just like an IAS officer).

CSS vs Inspectors (Income Tax, Excise etc)

CSS (Desk Job) Income Tax/Excise inspectors
Desk job Field job.
Low Work Pressure / stress is high
Good for preparing UPSC (because you’re in Delhi, the Mecca of UPSC preparation) Less.
Low You can earn more (via bribes), provided that you know your job, duties well, otherwise people (your own colleges and bosses) will stab you in the back and you’ll be suspended hahaha.
For those who want to enjoy family and social life, peace of mind, and are not obsessed with money. Promotion, name, fame, money (but comes at the cost of social life)
Permanent posting in Delhi until you retire. Transfers, deputation, field posting.
Once you get promoted to Under Secretary, you get free air-tickets during travel. Not applicable. But you get free petrol, free mobile card etc in some jobs.
  • So it should be clear to you that in Desk job: first preference = CSS (Job application code “A”).

Assistant in MEA: Work Profile

  • It is one of the most sought Assistant post under SSC-CGL.
  • Why? Because charm of foreign posting and many other lucrative facilities like children’s education, accommodation etc and a very handsome salary of more than 1 lakh per month (perhaps upto Rs 1,25,000).
  • But here is the problem: in the foreign countries, the cost of living, is also high!
  • For example $1500 is big amount when converted in Indian Rupees, but inside America, you can buy very few things.
  • And one can be posted in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Irak, Libya too.
  • but nothing to fear on this count as while sending one to an other country on posting he is given a few choices for the needed postings and he is posted according to those choices preferably. If one chooses any of the countries mentioned he is given 50% more salary and his tenure there is counted as DOUBLE; means he has to serve there for one and a half year which is counted equal to three years.
  • Let’s do comparison of these two assistants under MEA (Ministery of External affairs)

MEA: General vs Cypher Assistant (Difference)

MEA Assistant (General)

MEA Assistant (Cypher)

SSC-CGL-2013 job Application code “E” Code “F”
  • General filing-reporting type work.
  • They have to do the task of coding and decoding in addition of some highly confidential language.
  • Less
  • Cypher Asst got more foreign posting than general Asst
  • Assistant (General) is supposed to be posted generally 3 years in India and 3 years in foreign; and like this throughout his tenure of service
  • whereas an Assistant (Cypher) is posted 3 years in India and 6 years in foreign; and like this
  • promotional avenues are better in General Asst. You can go upto level of Under Secretary.
  • Less chance.
  • No night shifts.
  • Cypher has night shifts because of time-zone difference between India and foreign country
  • And it’s like u have to work for 6 days and then 2 days off. And 2 days will be night shift.
  • One can get his first promotion after about 15-17 years if he will not clear departmental examination and after clearing departmental examination, it will take around 8 odd years.
  • Verdict: if you originally wanted to be an IFS officer, but it did not work out, then perhaps this is the job you should try for.
  • If you want to permanently stay in India, then don’t tick these job-codes (application code “E and F”)

Assistant in Railways

  • Job Code is “D”
  • Assistant in railways: good job ,you’ll get 1 pass for family ( to and fro) anywhere in India free and 3 passes for family (to and fro) in which u pay 1/3rd of amount
  • all this for tier 2 AC ticket..then railway has its own railway homes all over India ..so you can stay there at a very cheap rate, if you using railway passes!



Always in Railways. Posting in variety of department and ministries= life is not monotonous.
Posting in various cities/regional HQ for example Lucknow. Always in Delhi till he retires.

Assistants: remaining

Job code Name

C Assistant Intelligence Bureau
G Armed forces Headquarters
H Other Ministries/ Departments/Organisations (Grade pay 4600)

  • Please note: these may or may not involve Permanent Delhi posting.
  • For example,Other organization >>Election Commission =always in Delhi.
  • But other organization >>Coast guard=sometimes in Chennai (Eastern command) and sometimes Kolkata (North Eastern Command).
  • To sumup, if you want “assistant” job, select A to I job codes first. But Internal choice (A,E,F… or E,F,A.. or whatever) that is as per your career-interest.

Ok this concludes discussion on “Desk Jobs”.
Now moving to Field jobs: Inspectors in Income Tax, Excise, CBI, Narcotics etc.

Field jobs: (Inspectors)

  • I classify them under : Tax and Non-Tax
  • Tax means Direct (Income tax) and indirect tax.(customs and Excise)
  • Non tax means: CBI, narcotics and postal Department.

Let’s start with Tax inspectors

Tax authorities: CBDT vs CBEC

First understand the difference

Direct tax

  • Levied on your income and property.
  • Income tax, corporate tax, capital gains tax are examples of Direct tax.
  • Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) deals with it.

Indirect tax

  • Levied on goods and services.
  • Service tax, custom-excise are examples of Indirect tax.
  • Central Board of Excise duty (CBEC) deals with it.
  • Note: Sales tax is also an indirect tax, but State Governments look after it.

Inspectors: Income Tax, Excise, Customs, Examiner

Organization Direct tax (CBDT) Indirect Tax (CBEC)
Inspector Income Tax Inspector Excise inspector Preventive officer (Custom officer) Examiner
Application Job code J K L M
Group C B B B
Salary Pay Band –II f 9300-34800 GP: 4600
Physical test NO Yes Yes Yes
Uniform No Yes (Khakhi) but optional. Yes (White) Always have to wear. NO
First promotion:Group B Gazetted* Income Tax officer (ITO) Superintendent Superintendent of Customs Appraiser
2nd Promotion Group A*(IRS) Assistant Commissioner Assistant Commissioner Assistant commissioner Assistant commissioner
subsequent promotions: Deputy Commissioner.
then Joint Commissioner > Addl. Commissioner > Commissioner
Deputy Commissioner Superintendent of Customs Deputy Commissioner
then Joint Commissioner > Addl. Commissioner > Commissioner

*notes on promotion

  1. You’ve to pass departmental exam to get promotion but it is for “screening”, otherwise promotion is actually given based on your zonal seniority.
  2. In Income Tax and Excise, initial years= you get posting only in the given zone. But once you get the “group-A” promotion that is Assistant Commissioner= you can be posted all india.
  3. Because those Group A jobs are just same like direct recruitment via UPSC civil service exam.
  4. According to All India Association of Central Excise Officers, the people joining in Income tax (CBDT) and Examiner (CBEC) get more promotions (6-7!) while Excise inspectors get barely 1-2 promotions, despite joining in the same year.
  5. Qualification for an ITI to get promoted to ITO is 3 years, though seniority also plays a major role in promotions. So basically it takes atleast 4-6 years to get promoted to ITO(considering the fact that one clears departmental exam in time), depending on the zone. (input by Rahul, CGL 2010).

Now let’s check the work profile of individual inspectors under Tax authorities

Income Tax Inspector:Work Profile

He can be posted in one of the following two areas (transferable on cyclic basis)

Assessment of tax

Non assessment

  • He has to do assessment of income tax to be imposed on an individual, partnership firm, company etc;
  • He has and refund of it in case someone has deposited in excess.
  • He also has to see the work related to TAX DEDUCTION AT SOURCE (TDS) besides being accompanying a raid team.
  • An Income tax Inspector on non-assessment seat generally has to do do clerical work though he too could be asked to accompany a raid team.
  • He is part of the raiding party.
  • No.
  • He is entitled for 30 liter of petrol if posted on assessment seat.
  • He also gets a SIM from the department on which all STD calls on every type of BSNL/MTNL phone are free; and 400 minutes on other phones whether STD or LOCAL are free for every month.
  • This SIM is provided to every ITI irrespective of the seat he is posted at.

Income Tax inspector: Good or bad?



  1. public dealing & regards
  2. good promotion
  3. opportunity to prove your talent
  4. good pay & other benefits
  5. good workplace and environment
  1. vulnerable post involving risks of making enemies..
  2. Post is under strict vigilance by CVC.
  3. Lots of departmental jealousy over coveted postings (=have to be alert of the backstabbing bastards)
  4. departmental complains from colleagues and public can get you in trouble very easily.
  5. too much hardwork & treachery to remain in importance.

Now let’s talk about the inspectors associated with indirect taxes viz. excise inspector, prevention officer and examiner.

    sir assistant in railways posting only in delhi or all over india…pls give information sir

  4. Gaurav Parmar says:

    Wanted to enquire about the career progression of Income tax inspector. How much time does it take to move on to the next levels (assuming the candidate is intelligent). Though the promotions are more time-based rather than intelligence but read somewhere that a few exams have to be cleared to move on to next levels.
    If a person becomes ITI at the age of 24, can he be a “Joint Commissioner of Income Tax/Additional Commissioner of Income Tax” by the time he retires (taking the best case scenario)

    I have only one comment on CSS job profile, though 3 hours of work mentioned herein cannot be taken at face value and also it may mean only effective number of hours required, there are very few sections in some ministries where one has to put in at-least 8.5-9 hrs of work on every working day even at the level of Assistant, however, there is no compulsion, but, if one is sincere, he/she can learn the work quickly and may be in a much better position at the time of departmental exam/promotion.

    Difference between ACIO and Assistant in IB through SSC

    Assistant in IB is a desk job (4600 grade pay). While ACIO is a field job (4200 grade pay). ACIO is equivalent to Sub Inspector.
    Assistant post in IB is filled by SSC, while recruitment of ACIO is conducted by IB itself.
