People’s IAS officer

People’s IAS officer

 

S.R. Sankaran

This former IAS officer was commonly known as “an ideal people’s IAS officer”. He played a crucial role in creating pro-poor policies and was the man behind the abolition of bonded labour, the creation of the special component plan for SCs & STs and the assigning of resources for marginalised communities in the rural development programmes. He remained unmarried so that he could serve the society and also contributed to the education of over 500 poor students. He died due to illness in 2010 but he will always be remembered as a “people’s man”.
