The Central Secretariat Service (CSS) is one of the
earliest organized services in the country. The origin of the service can
be traced back to the year 1919, when the Imperial Secretariat Service came
into being as one of the off-shoots of the Lewllyn-Smith Committee which had
been set up on the eve of the introduction of the Montague Chelmsford Reforms.
Central Secretariat Service cadre
