Best IAS Officers in India
These are some of the top IAS officers in India who are male:
Raj Yadav has adopted 5 Sikkim villages and has changed more than 7500 lives. Seven years ago these villages were facing daily problems like irregular supply of water and electricity, dysfunctional schools, and lack of basic development. But all these problems faded away as IAS Raj Yadav was appointed as District Magistrate (DM) in 2014.
He started an initiative named “Distract Administration’s Adopted Village” (DAAV). In this, the District Administration would take the responsibility of any underdeveloped village for its development.
Initial there was no participation from the people of the village but then after eight months, the IAS Raj Yadav won the trust of the villages which lead to the formation of the Gram Panchayat Unit (GPU) of Rongbul in the model village.
Athar Aamir Khan
Athar Aamir Khan is fighting child marriage and revamping education In Bhilwara, Rajasthan. After he was posted as Sub-District Magistrate (SDM) in the Badnore sub-division of Bhilwara district, he learned about the social as well economical problems faced by the district. He came to the conclusion that child marriage practise was the main problem of the region which is a sign of lack of education among villages.
To stop such practises Athar came up with a solution of creating a special control room to monitor at the District Administration’s office for looking into the cases of child marriage.
If any child fails to attempt school in the Badnore area of the district of Bhilwara for one day, the appointed squad is informed. The squad then do an investigation if the parents are planning the marriage of that child. If this is the case then the teachers and neighbours alert the appropriate officials.
These officials educate the family about the legal action that can be taken against the parents for practising child marriage.
Because of these actions by Athar Aamir Khan zero cases of child marriage have been reported since last year.
