He said only a few candidates get selected to the IAS, IFS and IPS postings from Karnataka compared to other south Indian states. He lauded the steps taken by the JSSTICE for providing training for candidates opting of for civil service examination.

He said hard work was required to pass All India Civil Service examination, which has become highly competitive. Mr Moily said personal prejudices of higher officials should not become criteria for promotions for lower rank officials. Loyalty to the rule of law and commitment to the public service would only ensure inclusive growth, he said.

Moily underlined the vital role of IAS officers in helping curb Naxalism by ensuring implementation of central schemes and equitable development.IAS officers have a role to play in ensuring that the schemes targeted at the underprivileged are implemented at the grassroot level, Moily said.
