So, who is more powerful IAS or IPS; DM or SP and Why?

The answer is IAS, because of following reasons:

·        The highest rank police officer of the state i.e. DGP who is an IPS officer has to report the Home Secretary who is an IAS officer who can be the junior. But both work in coordination with each other.

·        The heads of CBI, CRPF, BSF, etc, report to IAS Secretary who can be the junior.

·        IAS officers get promotions very fast as compared to IPS officers.

·        In a district, SP gives the charge of the entire police force under his jurisdiction reports to the DM.

·        In many states, the performance report of SP is written by the DM who can be several batches junior to him.

But this doesn’t mean that IPS officers have no powers. If there is any case filed against an IAS officer then the IPS officers of high rank like DG of IB, BSF, ITBP and CBI Director can investigate these cases and can also arrest them, if found guilty.

In conclusion, we can say that IAS i.e. DM is more powerful than IPS i.e. SP but they work in coordination with each other for the country's development.
