officer...just read this ====>
Research & Analysis Wing (Raw) is technically under the
Cabinet Secretary. Recruitment in RAW is done in the
following manner :
Direct recruitment - Deputy Field Officers (DFO) are
appointed directly at the junior levels and then the field
officers and senior field officers. DFO are recruited for
General Duty (GD), tel com, technical and economics. Other
than GD, the rest are promoted to FO and then RO (Resident
Officers) in their respective cadres.
Field officers (equivalent to inspector) and senior field
officer (equivalent to DSP) are appointed on seniority. You
need to work for a minimum of eight years as a DFO to be
promoted to the next level, that is a FO. Similarly after
minimum five years FO is promoted to senior field officer
(SFO) (Class I) rank. Foreign postings are only for General
Duty FO and SFO, under, secretary, deputy secretary,
director, joint secretary and additional secretary.
Recruitment at the lowest Class I level is with a basic pay
scale of Rs. 8000(Revised).
As a probationer an under secretary gets Rs. 10,500
(revised). As per rules, 50 per cent posts in the superior
service are filled through direct recruitment and the
remaining 50 per cent through deputation, promotion, and
deputation of special officers from the CBI, IT, Customs,
RBI and State Police (at the SP, DIG, or IG level) for 5-7
yrs or more. The lowest level of recruitment is that of
an ‘attache’ and during the probation period he is given
the designation of an under secretary.
Senior level appointments - Senior level appointments are
made in two ways. The first way : on the campus recruitment
of Civil Service candidates at the foundation course and
second way : recruitment of university graduates. The
general criteria followed is a Ist class from Class X
onwards. Final selection is made through interviews.
Specialist appointments - Special appointments are made in
technical or scientific field through campus interviews at
such institutes. RAW prefers persons who have had some
experience of working in government organisations.
Interview panels include experts and selectors from UPSC.
Language specialists - They find employment with RAW
because it deals with foreign countries and is involved in
the study of foreign service materials characteristics. Raw
recruits interpreters who are promoted to assistant foreign
language examiner and then to deputy foreign language
examiner. Interpreters are recruited directly to the
language cadre. There is no SC/ST quota or reservation for
any of these jobs.
after reading the above you shall come to know that it
might be a RAW RANK...
