Every debate eventually leads to a point when the suggestion of more
autonomy and freeing the system from bureaucrats comes up. 
The defence personnel want to deal directly with the ministry, 
academicians want to be freed from the clutches of bureaucrats,
sportsmen too want to help their sport and want the bureaucratic
control to go and so on.

The solution is not to increase the pay of IAS officers but to
do away with this system. Instead each Ministry should have 
officers who have performed well in their field. The system of
generalists has led to bureaucrats who know nothing in any field.
Surely, we can think of an alternate system.
