Question –


Hello Sir, this is Ashwani, pursuing graduation from Banaras Hindu University. Sir I want to become an intelligence bureau officer. Can you suggest me what should I do for it? What is the process of selection?



Expert Advice –


Dear Ashwani,

It would be important for you to do a course in Forensic Science. To become an intelligence bureau officer, it is important to learn a foreign language. Chinese may be one of the best options these days. A good background in Psychology and Behavior will be an added advantage for you. Read materials on Narco Tests, Investigation methods and on the art and craft of Deception. There is a Chineses scholar who wrote a big treatise on this to develop Military strategies.


A smart Intelligence Officer is needed in CBI, CID, RAW, counter Intelligence operations and in Foreign Missions. Collecting intelligence by various methods and analyzing, it helps in countering so many events that are adverse to national security and interest. Since you are studying in BHU, the best way is to appear for UP state Police Service Exams and also for IPS and Indian Foreign Service. UPSC conducts examinations for IPS.


Good Luck
