'Making New India' announced as theme of Civil Services Day
Dr Jitendra Singh Union Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) reviewed the preparations for the two-day observance of Civil Services Day this year and announced that "Making New India" will be the theme for Civil Services Day, 2017 scheduled to be held on 20th and 21st of this month in New Delhi.

According to an official press release, the stress will be on having 'the largest ever participation to compete for Prime Minister's Awards for Excellence' for 'implementation of priority programmes on the occasion of Civil Services Day'.

On the occasion of the observance, three films will be shown respectively on, award winning initiatives, citations of the award winning achievements and the entire process of initiating, selecting and finalizing the awards as well as conceptualizing and holding of the event, stated the release.

The awards will be based primarily on excellence in implementation of five priority programmes of government of India, which include: Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana; Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana; Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojan; e-National Agriculture Market (eNAM) and "Start Up India, Stand Up India".

However, awards shall also be presented for innovation work done in areas of environment, conservation, disaster management, education, health, women and child initiatives, etc, this time.

But, many feel that creation of ever-increasing number of observances and awards or prizes serve no purpose except spreading a facile feeling of 'all is well'.
