Hyderabad: Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) joint secretary K Srinivas addressed the Telangana State and Central Group-I officers, who are undergoing their respective Foundation Courses at Dr. MCR HRD Institute on Friday.
The theme of the presentation was “Capacity Building in Government-A Case Study of Revenue Department in Gujrat”. Srinivas said that government employees, irrespective of the services to which they belong and the levels at which they work, have the potential to bring about spectacular changes in the nature and quality of life of people.
He stated that capacity building should focus on empowering employees to develop empathy to understand genuine problems of people and to be proactive in finding solutions for them. He said that employees belonging to different services should not work in their respective watertight compartments and called for coordinated efforts on their part.
He advised the officer trainees to develop a culture of innovation to turn out the best and the brightest results, considering the paucity of resources at their command. During the course of his interactions with the Officer Trainees, Srinivas applauded the efforts of Telangana government aimed at purification of land records considering the fact that about 90 per cent of the disputes revolve around land titles.
Dr MCR HRD Institute DG BP Acharya said that employees working at lower levels of organization hierarchy were not to be treated as mere cogs in the wheel as they too play an important role in the working of an organization. “Officers working at higher levels are as efficient as their subordinates at the lower levels”, he stated and added that Dr MCR HRD Institute follows the policy of equi-focus on the training needs of employees at all levels.
Acharya said, with a sense of pride, that Telangana state has notified a whopping 1,13,000 posts, of which 28,000 have already been filled up. Considering the huge number of the newly recruited employees, he added that the e-Learning training modules, developed by DoPT, would be of great help.
Srinivas gave away certificates to the Group-I Officers who completed the e-Learning Modules, which marked the launching of the Comprehensive Online Modified Modules on Induction Training (COMMIT) of DoPT. He presented awards to ASOs for their best presentation on village visits and honored the faculty of Institute of Secretariat Training and Management (ISTM), New Delhi & Centre for Information Technology, Dr. MCR HRD Institute of Telangana.
