is there too much political interference in the IAS and the IPS?
Both the IAS and the IPS are services in which one come in close contact with the people. Decisions taken directly or indirectly by IAS and IPS officers have considerable impact on the common man. Any position in which a lot of authority is vested is bound to have controls too. The more important is the position the grater is the control. This applies equally to private and public sector . It is fallacy to imagine that the private sector offers a great degree of independence. The top position in the private sector are also subject to control or interference in some form or the other.
