Shri Sanjay Kothari inaugurates Conference of Training Managers

Connect with rural India: Shri Sanjay Kothari to Civil Servants 
Secretary, Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) Shri Sanjay Kothari has called on the civil servants for making a connect with the rural India. Shri Kothari stressed on a Citizen Centric training module for the various levels of Government employees to make them responsive to the needs of the millions of the poor and needy people. Shri Kothari said this in his address at the inauguration of the Conference of Heads of Administrative Training Institutes (ATIs), Central Training Institutes (CTIs) and Cadre Controlling Authorities (CCAs) and a workshop for Training Managers of Central Ministries/Departments here today.

Noting that unless the mindset of the civil servants changes from the colonial era, Shri Kothari said that the second round of administrative reforms will not be possible. Pointing out that the major problem in the government is that the officers are quite away from the realities, Shri Kothari said the DoPT is trying to frame new induction and refresher training capsules in association with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and a lot of new initiatives are in the pipeline.

In her address, Ms. Marina Walter, Deputy Country Director, UNDP said training is motivational and very important as we all need to be continued to learn.

The one-day Conference and Workshop aims to wrap the various initiatives together for focused approach in capacity building efforts at DoPT as laid out in the National Training Policy (NTP), 2012.

The NTP-2012 articulated a new vision for capacity building initiatives for civil servants in India. On the relevance of Human Capital in the context of Government of a democracy, the NTP-2012 suggests the DoPT to adopt a strategic view to Human Resource management of Civil Service.

During 2014-15, with a view to take the work on implementation of NTP further and to make the training cell of each Ministry/Department/Cadre Controlling Authority functional, the DoPT has taken up capacity building support to all Training Managers in each Ministry/Department/Cadre Controlling Authority. The purpose of this work is to develop generic and domain specific competencies in officers to promote citizen centric attitude for better public service delivery.

The 3 major initiatives launched by DoPT during the year are:-

• Induction Training Program for newly recruited Group B (non-gazetted) and Group C, frontline state government functionaries involved in 103 districts of 21 states

• Development of modules and National Pool of Trainers on two thematic areas of Leadership Skills and Ethics,

• Development of functional manual for guiding Training managers in implementation of National Training Policy and provide handholding support till training cell becomes functionally operational in each Ministry and Department.
