Civil Service Day

Every year, on the 21st of April, the "Civil Service Day" is observed by all Civil Services to re-dedicate and re-commit themselves to the cause of the people. It provides a unique opportunity for introspection as also chalking out future strategies to deal with the challenges being posed by the changing times.

 Why 21st April? Because it was on this day that Sardar Vallabh Bhai Pateladdressed the first batch of civil servants in Independent India at Metcalf House where he referred to civil servants as the 'steel frame of India'.
