Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh inaugurated the eighth Civil Services Day held in New Delhi on April 21, 2013. The Prime Minister also gave away the PM’s Awards for Excellence in Public Administration for the year 2011-12.
The day is observed by Civil Services to rededicate and recommit themselves to the cause of the people. It provides a unique opportunity for introspection as also working out future strategies to deal with the challenges being posed by the changing times. Eighth in a row, the day is being celebrated since 2006.
