New Delhi: Bureaucrats or the Civil Servants constitute the permanent part of the executive organ of government. They perform professionally and often the credit is taken by the political heads. That is the part and parcel of the game but unfortunately, the word bureaucracy is often received as a synonym of red-tapism. In order to reshape this perception and create a fresh narrative about the performance of bureaucrats in this country, three organisations- Fame India, Asia Post and PSU Watch decided to undertake a nationwide survey to find out the top 50 bureaucrats who have created a benchmark for the newer generation in terms of performance in public service.
There are more than 5000 Indian administrative service officers currently working in India. Doing a survey based on strict performance measures was a mammoth task. Editorial head of the Magazine Fame India, US Sonthalia said "Initially we thought of shortlisting 100 IAS officers in the first phase but then we could not downsize the list less than 300. Now imagine how difficult it was to choose the final 50 out of those super 300 officers.

That is why we categorized those 300 into 50 categories and chose the top officer from each category for the final list".
Managing Editor of PSU Watch, Vivek Shukla said "Honesty, integrity and impartiality to the core were the basic parameters for us while carrying out the survey. Choosing 50 out of thousands does not at all mean that the rest are inferior by any means. At the same time, these top 50 are clearly the best pick of the bunch"
