Civil Servants work for the welfare of the public and if the public is not comfortable around them, then all of it goes in vain. To resolve the issue, Modi Government has decided to organize a seven-day training program for IAS, IPS, Indian Forest Service (IFS) officers, and those from other services, where the sole purpose of the campaign would be to make the officers more ‘people-friendly’ and ‘ethical’ while dealing with the public.
In-service training programs are organized by the government every year but this year, the focus would be on making sure that the officers deal with the citizens efficiently, and are not inaccessible. The campaign will be organized by the IC Centre of Governance in Panchgani in February next year. Officers with a minimum of four years in service all the way up to the rank of secretary will be eligible to participate and officers from both central and state governments could take part.
“There has been a significant focus in this government on the training of officers. This is an area where training is much needed because it is, after all, a ‘public’ service. All expertise and policy-making skills come after this fundamental quality,” a DoPT official added.
