A group of 176 IAS officers of the 2016 batch, currently posted in different Ministries and Departments of the Government of India at the rank of Assistant Secretary, called on the President of India, Ram Nath Kovind, today (July 27, 2018) at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Addressing the officers, the President said that the IAS is our premier all-India service. It is one of those institutions that knit together our country with a common governance framework, a shared administrative ethos and by promoting a uniform culture and value system in public service. As IAS officers in the districts and state capitals, the officers will be responsible for implementation of national and Union government programmes. These may sometimes be tailored or adapted for local conditions. This makes the officers an important link between the government of India and the state government. It is incumbent upon them to bring the learning, expertise, experience and standards of integrity of an elite all-India service to every rung of government in our very diverse country.
