 MInisters are more powerful than civil servants as the ministers are elected by the people and only the ministers know the people's interests well as compared to the civil servants. Therefore, in our indian electoral system, more priority is given to people's interests and so the ministers are given more power than the civil servants.

ministers are more powerful since they are directly elected by people

civil servants(political & permanent executives) are appointed by ministers 

thus, ministers have more power
