Training calendar for IAS, others includes anti-corruption strategy, ethics

A painting depicting corruption
HOW to fight corruption has figured prominently in this year’s in-service training programmes designed for IAS and other officers working under Central Staffing Scheme. The training calendar for 2013-14 shows that…senior officers have to attend sessions on eradication of corruption strategy, good governance, ethics in public governance among others. The officers are trained in batches at a number of institutions and academies across India. In the backdrop of big-ticket corruption cases being surfaced at regular intervals, the anti-corruption training as part of senior bureaucrats’ in-service training programmes assumes significance even though senior bureaucrats used to get lessons on good governance in the past as well.
In the week beginning July 29, some officers, for example, will be trained at OP Jindal Global University located at Sonipat, Haryana. The subject of the training is “Fighting Corruption: Effective Corruption Eradication Strategy”. Similarly, some officers will be trained on good governance at Chennai’s Anna Institute of Management in August 16 to 20. At IC Centre for Governance (ICCG) based in Panchgani, there will be two training programmes on the same topic: ethics in public governance. The first programme will be held in November, and the second in January next year.
The other subjects that are a part of this year’s training calendar for IAS and other officers, include infrastructure finance, fiscal policy management, financial market regulations, procurement procedure and contracting just to name a few.
