For probationers, Delhi is first stop

img-sept15-29The Narendra Modi government is implementing an innovative idea for the young civil services probationers of the 2013 batch. As many as 147 officers will be put on training in different departments of the central ministries for 90 days. It will be the first posting of their career as Assistant Secretary and only after completing the training will they move to their respective cadres. Their training period will be from August 31 to November 30, 2015. But what is the need for such a move? There is no official comment but insiders say that it was the suggestion of the Committee of the Secretaries to put probationers under training in the central government for the first three months for grooming in the central government environment. Sources disclosed that the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and others with non-BJP governments had opposed the move. The West Bengal Chief Minister’s office is displeased as it had already issued posting orders for 12 officers with directions to report. This could have been avoided if the states had been taken into confidence. The DoPT is learnt to have already booked 104 guest houses in the Commonwealth Games Village, HUDCO Palace, Kidwai Nagar, Kasturba Gandhi Marg, and so on for the young IAS officers. Wait and watch for the impact of this innovative move.
