It is a non uniform job .The main function of Sub-Inspectors (or Inspectors) posted in the Branches/Units is to make enquiries and investigations and to gather information. They will enquire into or investigate the cases which are allotted to them. It is also their duty to look after their cases in Courts during trial or during the disciplinary proceedings which are initiated on the recommendations of CBI. Therefore the job profile of CBI includes frequent visits to courts which can be cumbersome for many people. Taking criminal to the courts safely is another concern attached to this profile. As CBI sometimes takes up cases of terrorists, it can be a challenging task. But no concern as you shall be provided adequate security from police. The work profile of an inspector and sub inspector remains the same. Due to these functions the CBI SI profile is considered to be a tough profile. You will need to extend your working hours or may even work on Saturdays.
