Civil Services at the Union and State levels

The Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions

The Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions is the coordinating agency of the Central Government in personnel matters specially issues concerning recruitment, training, career development, staff welfare as well as the post retirement dispensation. The Ministry is also concerned with the process of responsive people-oriented modern administration.

Department of Personnel and Training

The role of the Department of Personnel & Training can be conceptually divided into two parts, In its large nodal role, it acts as the formulator of policy and the watch-dog of the Government ensuring that certain accepted standards and norms, as laid down by it, are followed by all Ministries/Departments, in the recruitment, regulation of service conditions, posting/transfers, deputation of personnel as well as other related issues. Towards this end, guidelines are issued by it for the benefit of all Ministries/Departments and it monitors the implementation of these guidelines.

The two organizations through which the Department ensures recruitment of personnel for the Government are the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC)and the Staff Selection Commission (SSC).

Training Division is responsible for coordinating the implementation of National Training Policy which was adopted in April 1996.Two major training institutions directly under the administrative control of the Department are the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA), Mussorie and the Institute of Secretariat Training and Management (ISTM), JNU Campus, New Delhi. The former is mainly responsible for providing induction training to recruits to the Indian Administrative Service and other All India Services and Central Services.


The various Civil Services at the Union and State levels can be classified in several different ways. Firstly, the Civil Services can be categorized into three broad groups –
Central Civil Services, All India Services and the State Civil Services. The Central Services function under the Union Government and are generally engaged in administering subjects which are assigned to the Union under the Constitution, whereas the All India Services are common to the Union and the States and the State Services function only under the State Governments. Secondly, the Union and State Services can be classified into Group A, B and C categories based on their role and responsibilities. Thirdly, these services can also be classified into technical and non-technical services.

Central Services and State Services can be sub-divided into Group A, B and C according to the rank and responsibilities of its officials. Th is classification is hierarchal with the Group A Services generally carrying higher ranks and responsibilities. Though each of these groups has a different channel for recruitment, there is provision for promotion from Group C to Group B and from Group B to Group A

Central Services can be further categorized as (I) Non-Technical Services, (II) Technical Services (which include engineering services), (III) Health Services and (IV) Other Services (which includes some engineering and scientific services) and (V) Central Secretariat Services.

The Constitution, in Article. 312, originally mentioned only two Services as belonging to the category of All-India Services, namely, the Indian Administrative Service and the Indian Police Service. Subsequently, the Indian Forest Service was also constituted as an All India Service. The Constitution (Forty-second Amendment) Act, 1976 made provisions for constituting an all India Judicial Service, which has not yet been formed.
