  • The Indian Economic Service (IES) is a Group ‘A’ Central Service organized.
  • The IES was established in 1961 to create a core professional capacity inside the Government to conduct economic research and advice developing and formulating development policies, enhance delivery mechanisms, and monitor and assess government programs. With the start of large-scale economic reforms in 1991 and the expansion of the Government’s regulatory role, such research and recommendations inside the service have grown dramatically.

As a result, the service is both inter-ministerial and inter-departmental. The positions are mainly in Ministries/Departments that deal with economic and social issues. Even within organizations that employ many Cadre members, such as the Planning Commission, IES officers work in various fields, including finance, social services, rural development, education, health, agriculture, industry, trade, transportation, etc., and information technology.

Throughout their careers, IES officials have been exposed to development concerns in various sectors and participate in policymaking in the Central Government. The IES provides a pool of in-house economic expertise as a well-positioned service to meet the increased demand for analytical financial inputs for government policymaking since the country’s economic reforms have modified the nature and domain of economic policymaking.

IES officers serve on delegations in various domestic and international institutions, including UN bodies, foreign governments, state governments, regulatory authorities, and staffing Cadre postings. Under the Central Staffing Scheme, officers from the service are also appointed to positions in central ministries and departments.

  • The service’s role can be broadly classified as financial counseling, economic administration, development policy, program implementation, and dealing with other issues such as economic reforms, regulation, price-fixing, and monitoring and evaluation. Economic rationality is increasingly guiding decision-making in the quickly globalizing environment. The function of IES officers has become increasingly important in light of the Government’s ongoing reform efforts. Aside from the strictly economic areas, IES officials play an essential role in policymaking in the social sectors.
  • IES officers get exposed to nearly every aspect of government operations. These officers also provide consistency and linkage in policymaking, which is critical even when policies change. Because of these circumstances, IES officers have increasingly taken on the role of an in-house economist with domain expertise and experience.
  • The Economic Advisers would provide feedback to the Ministries/Departments on all policy issues and their economic ramifications. The officers may be required to monitor and assess policy parameters under the Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management Act 2003 from a financial standpoint and help the Ministry of Finance compile annual or other periodic statements required to comply with the Act’s provisions. Before finalizing their Annual Plan Budgets, Ministries/Departments could meet with the concerned Economic Adviser.
  • To ensure that individual Ministries/Departments’ policies are consistent with the overall direction of the economic policy outlined in the Union budget, Five-Year Plans, and other documents, Economic Advisers assigned to various Ministries/Departments would interact with the Chief Economic Adviser in the Department of Economic Affairs regularly, ensuring that the economic implications of policy changes are thoroughly examined, and facilitating individual Ministerial/Departmental policy.
