‘IAS Week’ to be held in Lucknow in March

Lucknow, Feb 3 (IANS) A three-day ‘IAS Week’ would be held here in the Uttar Pradesh capital during March 18-20, an official announced on Wednesday.

UP IAS Association chairman Rakesh Bahadur said a delegation of officials called on Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav earlier in the day and sought his consent for organising the annual event.
“The chief minister approved the dates after which we have begun the preparations,” he added.
Though an annual event of IAS officials in the state, it was discontinued for five years, during the Mayawati regime as the then chief minister did not allow it.
It was, however, in 2013 that Akhilesh Yadav okayed the event and it restarted.
