Ethical working culture

Indeed featured review

Good to start your career. Limited knowledge can be enhanced with help of NIC's project coordinator. Working in a public sector helps me to developed my attitude towards ethical standards.

Yes, I enjoyed my service.

What is the best part of working at the company?I worked as Member, Fast Track Revisional Authority for about 7 months of my last lap of service. During the period, I had to adjudicate many disputes arisen out of Assessment/Appeal/Audit. Since joining this service, we were supposed to function as quasi-judicial authority; but by virtue of general expectation of service we were never case neutral, rather reasonably biased towards revenue. In my life time only at FTRA, first time worked as truely a quasi-judicial officer. As per my perception I enabled myself to pass my good orders. It is worthy to mention that such orders were subject to Hon'ble Calcutta High Court and West Bengal Taxation Tribunal.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?I worked as Functional Head of Bureau of Investigation, North Bengal wherein I had to supervise all anti-evasion activitities viz. movement of taxable goods, search and seizure of business accounts, godowns. During such raids, I had to communicate my officers and staff constantantly and pass on updates to my superior authority.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Very friendly. As I worked there for a long time, it became our comfort zone.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Nothing mentionworthy. I had to chase our target always. We were usedto that. However, work was not enough. We hadto make reports in given formats, upload to respective portals. We had to attend meetings with Finance Secretary and Commissioner, SGST periodically.

Salary is too low

The only problem here is the salary is too low. Other than that very good work-life balance and the work environment is very friendly. You get support from the supervisor.

No job satisfaction

Management in administration break rules by themselves but expect others to abide by the rules. No job satisfaction as there is dirty working environment with no modern facilities at all with no manpower assistance. People are on their feet to stab each other. Salary structure is very poor.


No perks at all apart from fixed salary


Duty hours are not very long

Poor job culture

Terrible work culture, work life balance good but that is because there is not sense of responsibility in the employees. Growth depends on seniority, therefore motivation is near zero.


No work, salary guaranteed


No motivation for hard working employees

Enjoyed much with govt. assigned job but paid lesser amount in compare to my such a skilled job in compare to private sector jobs.

I enjoyed with full job-satisfaction though the Govt. Salary was poor, Still I performed well in setting up different office machines like latest type Xerox Automatic machines Computer Controlled Attendance machine, after which the Senior Officers of Govt.thanked me of installing such modern science technology, Due to close friendly relation with humour almost all the staff and officers loved me as their own family. But I was always duty bound while in administration, I never get worried when preparing Confidential Report of Staffs and Officers though sometimes it was like Open Personal Report with allowing them Grades,

Support from the boss.


Salary is not sufficient as compared to the responsibility.
