'''Bureaucrats''' are Wikipedia users with the technical ability to:
* promote other users to [[विकिपीडिया:administrator|administrator]] or bureaucrat status;
* grant and revoke an account's [[विकिपीडिया:Bots|bot]] status; and
* [[विकिपीडिया:Changing username|rename]] user accounts.
They are bound by policy and consensus to grant administrator or bureaucrat access only when doing so reflects the wishes of the community, usually after a successful request at [[विकिपीडियासम्भाषणम्:प्रबंधक]]. In like fashion, they are expected to exercise judgment in changing usernames, and in granting or removing bot flags. They are expected to be capable judges of consensus, and are expected to explain the reasoning for their actions on request and in a civil manner. Bureaucrats are not super-admins, and have no authority beyond these technical competencies and the domains of requests for user access levels, bot flags, and account renaming.
Bureaucrats do not have the technical ability to remove administrator or bureaucrat rights from users or to grant certain levels of access such as oversight or checkuser rights. These actions are performed by [[m:Stewards|stewards]], a small multilingual group of individuals who serve all Wikimedia projects and are elected and reconfirmed annually. Changes in user rights by stewards are recorded at [[meta:Special:Log/rights]]; for more information see [[meta:Requests for permissions]].
