The limitations that this leads to become obvious when one looks at MEA’s territorial divisions. The MEA has a single joint secretary to look at North Korea, South Korea, China, Japan, Mongolia, Taiwan and Tibetan refugees. A single joint secretary handles all the 20 Latin American countries and a dozen Caribbean countries in New Delhi and India does not post full fledged ambassadors to smaller but important Latin American countries like Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay. The entire South East Asian region, comprising the 10 ASEAN member states, along with Australia and New Zealand is handled by one joint secretary.
Indian diplomatic corps is about the same size as Singapore.
IFS is not a very attractive service/placement, no maal-pani you know. Just look at the size of the US Embassy in Delhi and compare it with other embassies. If India wants to become global player, we need eyes and hands on ready.
And talk about joblessness.
You are very very wrong. IFS constitutes the top 1-2% of the people who qualified UPSC. Enjoying your lavish lifestyle in different countries at govt expense is a dream. While, your local patwari is a multicrorepati, he can never buy diplomatic protocol. :grin:IFS is not a very attractive service/placement, no maal-pani you know.

I say good step by the government, it will be interesting to see how many opt for it.
