GROUP ‘B’ SERVICES

The Group ‘B’ Services include the Central Secretariat Service (Section Officers’ Grade-CSS), the Railway Board Secretariat Service (Section Officers’ Grade –RBSS), the Indian Foreign Service (Section Officers’ Grade –IFS ‘B’), the Armed Forces Headquarters Civil Service (Assistant, Civilian Staff Officers’ Grade), the Customs’ Appraisers Service, the Delhi and Andaman & Nicobar Islands Civil Service (DANICS), the Goa, Daman and Diu Police Service, posts of Assistant Commandant, post of Deputy Superintendents of Police in the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Though officers of the Group ‘B’ Services start off almost at par with their Group ‘A’ counterparts , yet after the fourth year they lag behind by 5 to 7 years. This gap widens further by the 18th year when Group ‘A’ Officers enter the Super Time Scale. The most coveted service among the “Group B” services is the Central Secretariat Service (CSS).
