What is Civil Services?


In India, the Civil Services System is the backbone of the administrative machinery. The concept of organized Civil Services is deep-rooted in our Indian History. Back then, in the Kautilyan era, when the empire was expanding, need arose for organized administrative machinery, as, a wholly personal administration was impossible. In 1854, Macaulay Committee gave India its first modern civil service. Post-independence Administrative set up is weaved around the vision of Sardar Patel to promote and strengthen national unity through the Civil Services with integrity, impartiality and merit at the core of it. Currently, for recruitment in Civil Services, we have a merit based system through competitive examinations conducted every year by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) in three stages, i.e., Prelims, Mains and Interview. It would be completely safe to say, that it is the most prestigious and toughest exam conducted in India.

Why Civil Services?


Civil Services paints ‘India’ in one colour. In India, the exam for the Civil Services is conducted at National Level. Regardless of the State you belong to, caste you belong to, the language you speak, it has a true ‘nationalist’ character. The work of the Civil Servants is sui generis. The legislature makes the laws, while, the Judiciary cannot go beyond what has been provided by the legislature. But the administrative wing takes upon them this challenging task to implement those laws at the same time taking care of the social and financial repercussions. They, thus, also enjoy the power of ‘Executive Legislation’. The prestige of the Civil Services lies in the fact that the vigilant minds of the country are allowed in the civil services. Kautilya’s Arthashastra, categorically states the need of the civil services as “the sovereignty is possible only with the assistance, for, a single wheel can never move”. The civil services was then, and even now is kept at the same pedestal with the ‘ruler’ or the ‘king’. Being the most prestigious and lucrative career option, the people employed in Civil Services are known for their higher intellect and swift problem solving skills. Due to its multifold character, the civil services provide a large platform to serve the nation and enrich oneself to live a better life.
