Father of Indian Civil Service
Charles Cornwallis, who is known as the Father of Indian Civil Service, improved and contemporized the Civil Services' inner workings, though Warren Hastings was notable for spreading the earlier foundations of Civil Services in India.
There were two kinds of civil service in India:
- Covenanted Civil Services (Higher Civil Services);
- Uncovenanted Civil Services (Lower Civil Services).
The Civil Service Covenant was constituted of only English personnel controlling higher government positions.
- Partition of tax management from the Indian Judiciary administration was the underlying vision.
- The uncovenanted civil service was executed only to facilitate the entry of Indians.
- The current civil services of India are predominantly based on the imprint of the former Indian Civil Service of British India.
