Information about Sub-Inspector in CBI

This is a post in the pay band 9,300-34,800 with grade pay of RS 4,200. They are also paid 25% of the basic pay per month in addition.
This is supposed to be a very powerful and influential post due to very nature of work. Any IT Inspector/ Examiner or for that matter any other central govt servant will vouch for the fact that CBI is a much feared organisation. I can’t say about higher bureaucracy like IAS etc, but for middle and lower level officers, once they come under the scanner, it is very difficult to get away.
Life in CBI is stressful due to heavy workload and deadlines there. Training duration is 32 weeks involving physical training and training on criminal and anti-corruption laws. During the training the daily physical activity includes 2 km run, PT, Drill in the morning and Games/Unarmed Combat Course in the evening.
Friends, as it’s generally thought it is not a 24 x 7 job; but sometimes the work stretches beyond the usual working hours i.e. sometimes one has to work till 8 or 9 pm. Usually on Saturdays, if the workload is more, the work goes on as usual; though Sundays are spared. Also in some branches like Special Crime etc, the job involves a fair bit of travelling especially in the starting years. The nature and hours of work also differs from branch to branch and place to place. Some branches have less workload and so the personnel can take it easy. 
No uniform required.
Sub Inspectors in CBI or for that matter any rank in CBI does not possess revolver/pistol. In a very few cases, when a search is to be carried out in some dangerous places, weapons are issued to the staff. The officers of CBI themselves are not interested in carrying a weapon.
The first promotion is to the post of INSPECTOR, and it takes 4-5 years normally. The next promotion is to the post of DSP, which takes about 10-12 years after becoming of Inspector.
20-30 for UR. For reserved categories add to it the usual age relaxation available to them.
Note: Being Group-B service, the age relaxation for UR central govt employees servicing for 3 years continuously is 5 years above the normal age limit for this post. For reserved categories add to it the usual age relaxation available to them.
