The publishing of the civil list of IAS officers started in the 1960's.

The fourth edition of e-book makes a departure from bulky paper-backed document, thereby reducing the cost, he said.

“The civil list is a comprehensive platform for the government to select best officers from different parts of the country and (provides) a level-playing (field) for officers to seek opportunities," said Singh, Minister of State for Personnel.

It will widen the horizon for the government to choose the best suitable officers from a wider pool of talent with more objective feedback, and thus not limiting the opportunities to officers who have worked with senior ones.

Singh, in his address, also emphasised on the use of next-generation tools and technologies for ease of working of the government.
