There is a reason why people are so crazy about “The Sarkari naukari”. Government jobs come with several perks like paid leaves, long maternity leaves, Allowances, pension etc. etc. The list goes on. The Government of India takes good care of its employees. Moreover the work pressure is manageable in Govt. Jobs. You get lots of holidays and have plenty of time after your job to spend with your family. The most lucrative of all the benefits is the Job security. No matter how bad the market gets, you’re going to have a job at all times till you retire. Government jobs provided a good salary along with other perks since all the time But the Seventh Pay Commission has added to the benefits in terms of salary.
As they say, money is the best motivator so why not use it in our favor?
