JOB NATURE OF SI CBI
Post of SI CBI is thought to be a very powerful and influential post. Any Income Tax Inspector/ Examiner or for that matter any other central govt servant will vouch for the fact that CBI is a much feared organisation. I can’t say about higher bureaucracy like IAS etc., but for middle and lower level officers, once they come under the scanner, it is very difficult to get away. Life in CBI is stressful due to heavy workload and deadlines there.
As it’s generally thought, it is not a 24 x 7 job; but sometimes the work stretches beyond the usual working hours i.e. sometimes one has to work till 8 or 9 pm. Usually on Saturdays, if the workload is more, the work goes on as usual; though Sundays are spared. Also in some branches like Special Crime Branch etc, the job involves a fair bit of travelling especially in the starting years. The nature and hours of work also differ from branch to branch and place to place. Some branches have less workload and so the personnel can take it easy.
Sub Inspectors in CBI or for that matter any rank in CBI does not possess revolver/pistol. In a very few cases, when a search is to be carried out in some dangerous places, weapons are issued to the staff. The officers of CBI themselves are not interested in carrying a weapon.
The main function of Sub-Inspectors (or Inspectors) posted in the Branches/Units is to make enquiries and investigations and to gather information. It is also their duty to look after their cases in courts during trial or during the disciplinary proceedings which are initiated on the recommendations of CBI. Therefore the job profile of CBI includes frequent visits to courts which can be cumbersome for many people. Taking a criminal to the courts safely is another concern attached to this profile. As CBI sometimes takes up cases of terrorists, it can be a challenging task. But you need not worry about that as you shall be provided adequate security from police. The work profile of an inspector and sub inspector remains the same.
In addition, this profile demands a lot of travelling across India, wherever you are allotted a case you will need to go there, collect all the information and perform the investigation. So it is a stressful job and your family and personal life may suffer. But in such investigations, you shall have complete authority over state police and other involved departments.
No uniform required.
