Private answer

As we already aware with the fact that Electronics, Computer Science, and Information Technology Engineering graduate has fewer jobs in government sector as compared to other core engineering discipline like electrical, mechanical and civil.

If one gets a chance to join any of the above mentioned two, he/she should go for it as both of these offers greater job security as compared to private organizations.

Let's check the quick comparison between the two;


The Central Public Sector Enterprises which have implemented the 3rd PRC for their employees, they have a very high salary as compared to the IBPS or SBI Specialist officers pay. So salary-wise profit making government PSUs are better for the engineers.

Work profile

The CS/IT/Electronics Engineers maintains the computer network, software, system, and various transmission switches/routers etc in the PUSs as well as in the banking sector. The Electronics engineers have little bit different work profiles in the power, manufacturing and metal industries.

Working hours

The working hours in the banking industry is from morning 10 AM to 6 PM whereas in the PSUs may be in vary according to the nature of the job. Many PSUs work starts from 8:00 AM in the morning till 5:00 PM. The electronics engineers may have to work in the shift duties in the power, manufacturing, metal and any other process companies.

Posting location

Banking sector Specialist Officer has an advantage of a good city posting location. Whereas most of the industrial PSUs are located in rural remote areas. So employee working in the PSUs has to work in these locations at the start of the service.

Pay revision

The Banking sector Pay gets revised after every 5 year period and next wage revision is due from November 2017.

The PSU employees get the benefit of the pay hike after every 10 years. The last pay revision was applicable from 01.01.2017. The 3rd PRC was not implemented by many Public Sector Enterprises like which are in not earning profits like SAIL, Vizag Steel, BSNL, MTNL and many more enterprises due to strict affordability criteria.

On the basis of the above point, one can really take the individual decision as per own priorities and interest. I hope this will help to take a better step for the career ahead.
