Earning from their salary
I have calculated the lifetime average salary of IAS officers. I have also made a table to help you understand how many years it takes to make a government servant make crore rupees.
For example, if a person joins civil service at the age of 25, it does service until 60 years, making a total service year of 35 years.
Note:- Here I have not calculate the earning after retirement from pension.
|Basic salary||years/timescale||total earnings|
|2,50,000||more than 37 years(2 years)||60,00000|
As you can see from the above calculations, on average, an IAS officer can earn between 5-7 crores rupees in their lifetime. Now here, I have not calculated the allowances provided by the government.
Money From Property
Most people have noticed people who crack the civil services exam. Most of them are from middle-class families. As per my knowledge, most of them have ancestral property.
Government servants may have a property which is to be divide or sold from them they can get a huge amount of share this thing can also add money to their bank balance.
Other than that, they can also purchase property from their own salary and sell it later in profit to make money in crores.
Earnings From Investments

Become Rich After Marriage
So we all know taking and giving dowry is a crime, and IAS officers are pretty much aware of it. But what if the person you are marrying is super-rich.
This makes you rich when you marry a person as you get a legal share of their property.
As per the All India Service rules (under rule 11), an IAS officer or any civil servant cannot take gifts at any functions from any individual or family, or friends without disclosing it to the government.
IAS officers cannot even do business in their name or take any other income in their bank account because it violates the (conduct)rules 1968. However, officers who all are retired can involve in doing any business on their own
Taking bribes is a big crime, and still, people do it from both sides. Yes, I have seen with my own eyes. But if any officers do it for their own greed, then immediate action is required against them.
Can IAS officers never do business?
Once any person is retired or takes voluntary retirement from their own, they can do any kind of business independently.
Can IAS Officers Buy luxury cars?
As per the calculations, an IAS officer can buy any luxury car from their salary. They can get a luxury car by financing it and paying EMI per month.
