Article 312 of the Indian Constitution introduces that besides separate services for the Union and the States, the Centre can create certain services common to both. These services give cohesion to the feral structure and help in achieving greater efficiency in the administrative of the Union and the States. The all-India basis of recruitment attracts the best available talent in the country to theses services. The two-main All-India services are the Indian Administrative Service and the Indian Police Service. The raison’d eter of creating All-India Services is that officers on whom the burden of responsibility for administration will inevitably fall, may develop a wide and all-India outlook. With a view to correcting particularistic trends and also to secure a greater inter-state coordination for efficient implementation of All-India policies efforts have been undertaken towards creation of few more All-India Services, especially for technical departments, for the Central and State Governments have to work in very close co-operation in executing important development projects.
