Hi, I am interested in the Indian Foreign services and am preparing for the same. I would like to know what the pay structure of an Indian Foreign Service officer is. I have read on the internet that it is congruent to the salary of a high level officer of the Indian Parliament but have not been able to get a figure though. I would really appreciate it if you tell me the gross amount in Indian currency with the break-up of how much the TA, DA, HRA, Variable Pay and Additional Funds is paid to such an officer.
Are you giving the UPS exams and getting ready for the exams? It seems like you are taking it very easy. Buddy, this requires hard work and a little bit of luck. You see there are many of us who are aiming for this career and frankly even the salary does not matter all that much. As you get to travel over the world and enjoy a number of side benefits. All the same following is the salary structure of IFS officers according to their grade:
Basic Pay Scale is Rs. 8000 – 275 – 13, 500
2. Senior Time Scale [Under Secretary]
Basic Pay Scale is Rs. 10, 650 – 325 – 15, 850
3. Junior Administrative Grade [ Deputy Secretary]

4. Selection Grade IV [Counselor Director]
