Passage

Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow based on your understanding of the passage:

The main function of civil service is formulation and implementation of public policy. The civil service engages itself in collection of relevant data and information in order to identify the crux of the problem. The civil service, specially at the secretariat level, is considered as the ‘think tank’ of the Government and it helps in making sound and effective policies. The civil servants also administer the law of the land. They are to implement and execute the law of the land faithfully and impartially. In finance, the civil servants not only prepare the budget but also influence the taxation and expenditure policy of the government to a great extent. Today they perform quasi-legislative and quasi-judicial functions also. Public relations have become an important part of their official duties. Therefore, they are expected to explain the Government policy to the people and to win their co-operation in its implementation. In a country like India, civil servants are entrusted the responsibility of implementing various programmes of rural development and welfare measures. Recent decades have seen a shift towards a reduced role for the Government in all countries. Thatcherism in UK and Reaganomics in USA tried to pull out the State from the morass of over-involvement. The decline of Communism in Eastern Europe has furthered the trend towards economic liberalisation and disinvestment in public sector enterprises. India could not have remained unaffected by these global trends.
