public servantswell i am myself a public servant, by default, now why i say that is not something i am going to share with you, but what i want to share is , why do people opt for govt. jobs when it pays u less when u compare it with multi nationals also u get posted in far flung areas , broadly there are three factors
(1) job security
(2) less amount of work
(3) no accountability
people develop an attitude that they are secure and even if they don't do anything they will not be fired in simple and good words its called job security, now what it means is that people start behaving in a manner which is totally unacceptable for example they will come late and leave early leaving their work (if they have any) even people who use to be sincere in their college days do it.
now the second factor people joining any PSU have somewhere in the back of their minds a feeling that one has to work less in govt. undertakings, bcoz other wise i don't think that people actually join a govt. undertaking in order to serve their country.
also there is no accountability if u work u will get a promotion in 3 yrs. if u don't u will get it in 3yrs. so why work u'll get ur salary for sure only thing is u'll spoil ur confidential report, that for such people that doesn't matter. they are happy photocopying despite being an engineer.
last but not the least they think they are on the ruling side so they have the power but this is only a false sense of achievement as there are no real powers.
