Poor family life, stressful but with good salary and other benefits

Poor family life, stressful but with good salary and other benefits. Officers posts are comparatively better. Secured future with lot of sea life. Don't expect much and keep working. Growth is time scale and most of the time it's not on the basis of merit but on the basis of caste. Reserved category get priority in promotion.


Free medical, canteen, ubiform


No old pension, stressful life
