There were some who supported his message despite the fact that many others opposed it, saying the IAS is all about “power and respect.” On his official Twitter account, CA Chirag Chauhan stated, “The starting salary of a CA is the average salary of an IAS.” Why is IAS preferred by people? He included a picture of the salary division of an IAS officer with the tweet.

The post was published on April 17, 2024. The share has had over 7.5 lakh views since it was tweeted, and that number keeps rising. Over 2,400 people have liked the post. In reaction to the share, other people made different responses.
