More about Civil services day: This date was selected to remember the day when Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the country’s first Home Minister, addressed the probationers of Administrative Services Officers at Metcalf House, Delhi, in 1947. The Prime Minister’s Awards for Achievements in Public Service are given to Districts/Implementing Units for the execution of the target policy and creativity categories as part of the Civil Servant Day. In 2006, the first Civil Services Day event took place in Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
