IAS wanted for 11 months long training on internal security

THE government seems to be serious in imparting training on internal security to senior IAS officers as well. It has asked for nominations of IAS officers below the age of 50 for participation of an 11-month-long training programme on defence or internal security at the National Defence College, New Delhi, beginning January, 2010. Only such officers who would have completed a minimum of two years of service in the Centre in January 1, 2010, should be recommended, a circular by department of personnel & training (DoPT) under the ministry of personnel, public grievances & pensions said. For officers of other services, or non-IAS, the ministry of defence has been addressing the respective cadre authorities directly, and accordingly, officers of other services may apply for NDC course, if and when their cadre authorities invite applications in response to the communication from the ministry of defence, the circular has further said. Departments, ministries or state governments should nominate their officers latest by 24th July, 2009. The government will sponsor the officer by paying the tuition fees of Rs 2,10,000 and bearing the expenses of domestic and foreign tours during the course. If you have any doubt, just pick up the phone and contact director Trishaljit Sethi at 011-23092842.
