Thx
Dear it varies from person to person it depends on what you like to have in your life? If having 50+ salary,house & car finance and living a peaceful life with your family all what you want then for sure you better continue with your NBP job

BUT

If you like meeting new and new people every day, want to have extensive contacts in all government departments,media and politicians, want to improve your qualification by getting a masters degree from a foreign university,want to be posted abroad as Press attache', press counselor and Press minister then for sure you SHOULD opt for Information Group.
At the end of the day you have to take the decision that what you like more amongst the two scenarios above. If I were you I definitely would have opted for Civil Service; the biggest edge one gets is the social recognition,contacts and lecurative scholarships for higher study abroad.

Dear your situation is simple...I think you MUST go for Information group because in any case being a commoner is way better than being a lecturer in a university. As far as information group itself is concerned; as mentioned above it varies from person to person. some people become very successful in IG whereas others suffer because they do not like hard work. This is the group in which one has to work hard to make his mark. This is the group in which one has to be involved in Public diplomacy and one has to manage pakistan's dangerous media.
There are postings in PID as IO or PRO,EP Wing, IP wing, APP, DFP, PBC and ABC moreover from 18th grade onwards IG officers are posted as Press attache', press counselors and press ministers in some 25 pakistani missions abroad

Don't join. Believe me its not worthwhile if you are already getting such good salary and perks. If you join you will always look back at leaving the NBP job with regrets because the information group does not give you much perks and privleges and if one is a female it becomes even tougher especially if one gets posted with a male Minister as PRO. Most of information group officers look to leave on deputation as soon as they are posted in the field. After 18th amendment when a lot of federal ministries are being handed over the provinces ,the prospects of this group have severely declined as instead of expansion the seats in this group are set to get reduced at senior levels. The only positive thing for you would be the prestige that is attached with being a csp officer but what is the point if you can't pay your household bills and have to look for other means to feed yourself. Information group can only be revived if all administrative positions in Pemra and PTV are handed over to this group. Otherwise, this group is no longer attractive.

@ tadap

well bro!! u will get 100 diff opinions here but the thing is that u have to decide ur priorities in life first and make your own decision...u cant really know anything unless u r really into it...

If u have to support a family..that is ur the earning person then in my opinion DO NOT join civil services...coz ur first objective then is to earn a gud living for ur family and falling from 50k to 25k doesnt seem much appealing..and u wont worthy status if ur family would b suffering

And if u dont have to support a family.. have other income resources then do join civil services..as for status and prestige

But at the end as i said the decision should be yours... set ur priorities first/...
