New Delhi, May 15 : Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today asked the 2006 batch Indian Administrative Service (IAS) probationers, who called on him here, to improve the quality of governance at all levels and to tackle corruption head on.Addressing the civil servants, Singh urged them to effectively administer the National Rural Employment Guarantee Programme and other flagship projects to soften harsh edges of extreme poverty.

Expressing happiness over the proportion of women officers in the 2006 IAS batch, Singh observed that it augured well for the future development of the country.

"The All India Services and other services are in a unique position to think about the long-term interests of the country and develop India into a cohesive entity by fighting fissiparous tendencies," he said.

Expressing concern over the marginalized sections of society like Schedule Castes, Schedule Tribes, minorities, women and others, he asked the civil servants to enforce law and order with justice, compassion, and ensure that the fruits of development were equitably shared.

"To realise the objective of nine to ten per cent growth, the agricultural economy must grow at the rate of at least four per cent per annum. Hence, our agriculture and rural economy needs to be revitalised through the application of science and technology and it must remain the prime concern of administration for many years to come," Singh added.

He further said, "There are no external constraints on our development. Our challenges are at home. The world respects India. Democracies around the world want India to succeed to show democracy can deliver development".

The Minister of State in Prime Minister's Office, Prithviraj Chavan, Cabinet Secretary, Principal Secretary to the PM, Director and faculty members of the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration and other senior officials of the government were present on the occasion.
