Civil Services have to play an important role in executing New Initiatives: Dr Jitendra Singh

New Delhi I Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh today said that entire training curriculum for Probationers has been reoriented because Civil Services have an important role to play in executing new initiatives, policies and programmes to shape the vision and roadmap laid down by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for India for next 25 years.
Speaking after inaugurating the Foundation Training Programme of ASO (Probationers) of 2018 Batch at Institute of Secretariat Training & Management (ISTM) here, the Minister said, they will be the New Architects to lead the caravan and make India a Pre-Eminent Nation, when it celebrates 100 years of independence. He said, Modi has shared his vision for building a New India where the welfare of every citizen is at the heart of national planning and programmes. He said, in the light of this, there is complete reorientation of the entire training curriculum from top to bottom.

Addressing the Probationers, Dr Jitendra Singh said, “You are joining the service when India is celebrating AzadikaAmrutMahotsav, 75 years of Independence, but the next 25 years are going to be crucial for you as well as for the nation’s growth and progress”. He said, the ASO Foundation Training Programme is one of the first to have been redesigned, incorporating important principles of Mission Karmayogi. He told the Probationers that they are part of the historic batch which will be the first to undergo the revamped “role based” and “competency-based” training.

The Minister said that he would like to see them making maximum use of this redesigned competency based training programme being delivered by ISTM during the Foundation Module, which will empower them to fulfil the expectations of the Nation and its citizens.

Taking positive note of the fact that more than 60 percent of 900 officers are from Engineering or technical background, Dr Jitendra Singh said it augurs well as most of the schemes of the Modi Government in the last 7 Years have a huge scientific orientation and dependence like the JAM trinity, Agriculture and Soil Health Cards, Urban Mobility, Smart Cities, DBT, Digital India, National Highways and Urban Planning to name a few.
