Switch Default Gateway

Hi All ,
Layer 2 Switch makes forwarding decisions based on Layer-2 header. It has nothing to do with Layer-3 ip address.
Then why do we give default gateway to a switch in VLAN network environment.

IP default-gateway" command ?

    In order to manage or connect to switch we need to set up vlan interface x .
    Layer two will have one svi interface up. Likely it is vlan 1
