Kannur (Ker): If bureaucrats carry out their responsibilities with a humanitarian approach and dedication, they could significantly help in all-round progress of the country, Vice President M Hamid Ansari said here on Saturday.

"There are vital areas where civil servants can contribute more effectively than politicians since they are better equipped to work out details of projects... They should carry out their responsibilities with a humanitarian approach and dedication," Ansari said after presenting the A K Nair memorial award to T K A Nair, Principal Secretary to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Civil servants could also play an important role in co-ordination between states and the Centre to ensure materialisation of major projects, he said.

Lauding Nair's services, Ansari said he has made valuable contributions in ensuring materialisation of major schemes in Kerala like Vallarpadam Container project and Sabarimala Master Plan.

The award was instituted in memory of A K Nair, a leading entrepreneur from north Kerala, who was instrumental in finding world markets for the handloom textile of Malabar.
