This chapter examines the history and structure of the all-India services. The term was first coined by the Committee on Division of Functions set up under M.E. Gauntlett in 1918. Of the nine all-India services in 1919, only three remains today. These are the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), the Indian Forest Service (IFS) and the Indian Police Service (IPS). This chapter discusses the legal framework and the constitutional basis of the all-India services.
