Union home minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated the annual two-day 11th Civil Services Day programme on Thursday (April 20), attended by the country’s top bureaucrats. Every year on this occasion civil servants take vows to dedicate themselves to the cause of citizens and renew their commitment to public service.

At the event, Singh said, “Civil servants are fortunate to have certain opportunities, responsibilities and minimum facilities at a very young age and the country has a lot of hope from them.”

He also said that it provides a platform to discuss and deliberate upon various issues and is also a forum to introspect.

Singh stressed on the fact that civil servants provide administrative continuity in the country and Indian polity has never faced a vacuum in all these years. “The ‘steel frame’ of our civil services has not weakened even after seventy years of Independence,” Singh said.

The awards on the Civil Services Day are given on five priority programmes, namely Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana, Deendayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana, Start Up India/Stand Up India and e-National Agriculture Market (e-NAM).

A total of 10 districts will be awarded the Prime Minister’s Awards this year under the five programmes.
