The benefits of being a female IAS officer
The benefits of being a female IAS officer are numerous. You get dedicated office staff and a car. Plus, you get several gazetted holidays. You get to choose your job postings and enjoy the flexibility that the government offers. Not to mention, you have a family to support and a comfortable office to work in. But what about maternity leave? Is it a luxury for an IAS officer?
The alleged “misconduct” of an IAS officer is not the first time the topic has come up in the media. A video posted by the Genpact Centre for Women’s Leadership, part of Ashoka University, showed Pandey in her office with her infant, while other users criticized her for taking time off. Others praised her for her “strenuous commitment” to her career and said she was “a strong working woman”. But many of these people are trying to portray Pandey as an outcast who is trying to avoid a public debate about the issue.
Although government regulations require women to take six months off after giving birth, Pandey went back to work a mere fourteen days after her daughter was born. She says she was able to work because her husband did not take maternity leave. But she did not have the time or the money to take paternity leave.
