Our new Generation has great interest in government jobs but there is still a large number of crowd who is aspiring from govt jobs. Though there are so many drawback in govt jobs although there are so many benefits as well which will make you think why you should work in a govt. job for better and stable lives.
Ambition of government jobs is mainly in lower and middle class. If you come from an affluent class or upper class then you will give to doom to eternal punishment or condemn to hell to govt jobs.
Nevertheless, aspiration of government jobs among lower class and middle class is not without any reason. They surely don’t know that private jobs are better than government jobs .
A government job has many benefits than a private job .
Private jobs can not offer like government job.
I searched out top possible reasons that makes complete sense, why actually certain section of a society is interested in government jobs in India.
Most of them are captured here :-
A Lot of Free Time for family
The Worden of hug workload in a government job is almost negligible. So You get a lot of free time and you can do other activities for you and your family.
One of the best ways to utilize this time to enjoy and for other such materials that can be helpful in future. If you want to switch to other jobs then you will get ample time for preparation and can do your best.Less workload means less tension when you come back to home.
Though in private companies and other non-government jobs you have to work more than hours and then your wage is decided. You have to toil day and night. You may get more money than a government job, but you have to work very hard.
So People love most government jobs because of less workload in life.
Every Month regular Salary on Time
Although the country is in great economic problems or milk & honey is flowing on the streets, it does not matter. In both conditions, you will get your monthly salary on time.
Although, in a private job a person will get his salary only if company is making profit, when company stop making money then no salary for employees that month.
Hence people love government jobs because their salary is guaranteed every month all service.
Survive Without Any extra Skill
Whether you work for one hour or 8 hour you will get the same salary in a government job. So people choose not to work and relax for more time.It does not matter whether you have any good skill or not.
No one will question you and you will get your due salary in time. You can survive without any skill through life.
But in a private company if they find out that you are not doing your work properly then they will kick you out any time from your job.
Although, in private jobs there is also something called assessment. They assess you every week or month whether you are capable enough to continue the work you have been given. If they find, you do not have necessary skills then also you will be kicked out.
Pension until you die
Other great thing about a government job is you will get pension until you die. This is a complete insurance of your life. No private job gives you pension and you have to either save money while you are working or beg in front of your children in last.
A government employee never has to fear about his future. He or she can retire peacefully without bothering future tension.
So this is the main reason why people still love government jobs over private jobs.
In a time when paying for mortgage is out of reach for many people. Prices are so high that people from middle class cannot manage affording mortgage.
Even renting a house is beyond their means. If you work for a government job then you do not have to bother about mortgage or rent. In a government job you will be provided with housing facility.You can live in government accommodations without any tension of paying rent. And they are as good as an apartment in a posh locality in any city.
You can save the same money that a person working in a private company has to pay for monthly rent for all life. That amount of money could be quite large after some time!
So Certainly this is a genuine reason why people still aspires for a government job than private.
Free Health Care facility
Day by day health care for ordinary people is becoming out of their reach, even people from upper middle class is finding it difficult to afford health care for their family.If you work in a government job then government will bear all your medical expenses, not just for you but entire family also. Even complicated surgeries, which could cost you thousands of dollars, for a government employee would be done free of cost due to govt job.Government would bear all expenses for the surgery. However, if you work for in a private company then you have to spend from your pocket.
So This is why most people love government jobs.
Get many Types of Allowances
In fact, a job in a government sector would take care of all your extra expenses. From grocery to travelling, all expenditure will be subsidized by the government.
You will get dearness allowance (DA) and Travelling Allowance (TA) to cover all your extra expenditure. It won’t hurt you, even if inflation is so high.
Moreover, you can travel anywhere in the country with concession. You will not find such concessions in private sector jobs.
That’s why people still aspires for government jobs.
More Vacations to Spend
Workload in a government is very less. Hence, you get maximum number of holidays in a year for free of cost. In a private job, you would hardly get a holiday. In a year you get maximum 4 to 5 holidays.
But in a government job holidays you get in a year is greater than any private job in India.
So This is another reason why people want to go for government jobs.
Sense of Social Security
If you get monthly salaryon time, a lifelong pension, medical facility and other allowances then your life is much secured compared to other people who work for private companies.
You can enjoy a great sense of social security in your life. You are in a position that you can live rest of your life without any tension.
Great fear of your life could be insecurity and government jobs make your life socially secure.
Over and above, I am not saying this is an advantage of a government job but unfortunately this is a reality and people love government jobs because of these reason for their bright future.
