Govt sends engineers to Japan for training on power distribution grid

REMEMBER the dark-age last year. The pan-India power grid collapse in July 2012 virtually stopped the nation’s movement for two days. Now, the government is sending some engineers to Japan for a group training course on “Improvement of Electric Power Distribution Grid”. The training organised by…
Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will be held in Japan from May 15 to June 21, 2013.
Training course will include lectures and practices by the distribution engineer of electric power utility, and the site viewing of distribution facility.
The programme is designed mainly for engineers working for government agencies, for electric power sector or electric power companies, and those currently or expected to be posted in the core position to encourage such developments of distribution systems as decrease of distribution loss, improvement of electric power quality or electrification, a government circular said.
Participants from Bhutan, Iraq, Jamaica, Malawi, Myanmar, Nigeria, Philippines, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Zambia are also expected to attend the programme.

No suitable officer for WTO?
Almost three months after it had first advertised the vacancy for the post of Counsellor (Services), Permanent Mission of India (PMI), Geneva, the government has failed to spot a suitable candidate. On March 18, 2013, it has once again written to the cadre controlling authorities to find the right candidate who will be posted in Geneva, Switzerland for three years. The post is at the level of a director or deputy secretary. Those who had applied on the basis of the government’s earlier circular dated December 27, 2012 may not apply once more, the new circular said.


  1. Improving the electricity power distribution needs a good training for that and for that we need a well trained persons. Like this in any sector training is much need for the business grow and this kind of training program helps for understanding other things.

  2. I certainly would like to learn many things from the author of this post. Project management training courses
