All candidates are advised to fill this post of preference list
Assistant in MEA & Assistant (Cypher) in MEA
This is most sought post under SSC CGL Exam due to foreign posting and many other lucrative facilities like children’s education, accommodation etc and a very handsome salary of more than 1 lakh per month.But one can be posted in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, syria too; but nothing to fear on this count as while sending one to another country on posting he is given a few choices for the needed postings and he is posted according to those choices preferably. Also you have to live in consulate area so no fear from native people in foreign countries. If one chooses any of the countries mentioned he is given 50% more salary and his tenure there is counted as DOUBLE; means he has to serve there for one and a half year which is counted equal to three years. Cypher Asst. is a little different from Asst. (general) because they have to do the task of coding and decoding of some highly confidential language in addition. Cypher has night shifts also and has to work for 6 days. A system of 2 days off and 2 days will be night shift, so no fixed Saturday or Sunday off.
An Assistant (General) is supposed to be posted generally for 3 years in India and 3 years in foreign countries and like this throughout his tenure of service whereas an Assistant (Cypher) is posted for 3 years in India and 6 years in foreign and like this.
A Cypher Assistant gets more foreign postings than general assistant but the promotion chances are better in general assistant. In MEA the promotional chances are very less and one can go up to the level of Under Secretary (US). He can be promoted to the next post in two ways- First direct after 15-17 years and second after 8 years of service or so after clearing departmental exams.
Candidates who prefer foreign postings & handsome salary can fill it first or second in the preference list.
Assistant Enforcement Officer
Assistant Enforcement Officer is an inspector post. If anyone posted in Headquartesr than he/she have to do Clerical or file related work. If one can posted in the field than he /she have to do Executive work like prevention of money laundering, to conduct searches of suspected persons, conveyances and premises and seize incriminating materials (including Indian and foreign currencies involved), to arrest and prosecute the person suspected to be involved in the act of money laundering, etc. Duty is round the clock; this means day as well as night shift job.

The Zonal Offices are headed by the Deputy Directors.The Directorate has eleven Sub Zonal Offices at Bhubaneswar, Calicut, Guwahati, Indore, Jaipur, Jalandhar, Madurai, Nagpur, Patna, Srinagar and Varanasi, which are headed by the Assistant Directors.

Sub-Inspector in CBI
Sub Inspector CBI post is of grade pay of RS 4,200. but it’s salary is almost equal to the total salary for the grade pay of Rs 4,600 as CBI executive staff is entitled to additional 25% on BASIC PAY + DA and in addition to that salary of 13 months instead of 12 months year.This is supposed to be a very powerful and influential post due to nature of work. Any IT Inspector/ Examiner or for that matter any other central government employee will vouch for the fact that CBI is a much feared organization. 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. Training duration is 32 weeks in Ghaziabad involves physical training as well as training on criminal and anti-corruption laws.It is very hectic job generally the work stretched beyond the usual working hours like 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 etc, the job involves a fair bit of travelling especially in the starting years. The nature and hours of work also differs from branch to branch and place to place. Some branches have less workload and so the personnel can take it easy. No uniform required.Sub Inspectors in CBI or any other rank holder in CBI generally do 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 weapon.
Female candidates are advised to fill this post according to their wish but keep it nearby 10. Male Candidates are advised to fill this post very near to central excise inspector.
Inspector of Posts
Every Postal division has Inspector of posts in its office. Every district has two or more divisions. This is the worst post offered by SSC CGL Exam with Grade pay of 4200. A duty of Inspector of Posts is to sell Postal Life Insurance with a fixed target.
