MPSC for a career in Maharashtra Civil Services


MPSC Career in maharashtra

Even though there is some awareness about MPSC examination among the rural as well as urban population in Maharashtra, not many think of it as a strong career option. Especially in an industrially developed state like Maharashtra, there is availability of other attractive career opportunities such as Engineering (preferably software engineering), Medical, Management, Architecture so on and so forth. Hence the parents as well as students seldom think of MPSC as their very first career option. In addition to this, various misunderstanding about the nature of these exams, suspicions about one’s own abilities, lack of awareness about availability of quality guidance and standard reading material etc further distract the students from taking this career option seriously. However, like UPSC, MPSC is also a robust career option, which not only can give name, fame as well as a secure, stable and enriching career path but also immense inner satisfaction of serving the society in true sense of the term. MPSC has an added advantage for girls as there is 33% reservation for them in these exams.
