PM Modi also conferred Awards for Excellence in Public Administration 2021 on Civil Services Day. Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said, “Can the award winners share their stories at training institutes related to civil services? This will not only inspire others but will also give practical exposure to them.”
“The awardees conferred today should select any one of the government schemes and draft a plan to implement it in their districts,” he said. The Prime Minister highlighted that everybody has an opportunity to learn from each other. PM Modi said, “We always have an opportunity to learn from each other. When you try to proactively learn from people, you will always find something new to adapt in your life.”
“As India celebrates 75 years of Independence, speak to former officers who served the district you are currently deployed in and take their counsel. In this way, you will not only honour their services but will also be able to take inspiration from them,” he said.
