Derived from the Covenants of good behaviour that an employee was obliged to sign, a Covenanted Civil Servant became a member of the cadre of men who administered the government of India.

Most of those who served in the first half of the nineteenth century were trained and educated at Haileybury.

In contrast, an Uncovenanted Civil Servant was often recruited to work in the more junior positions of the Civil Service.
