Prez to Probationers: “Stay away from any temptations”; 10 Commandments

PRESIDENT OF INDIA Ram Nath Kovind on Monday met probationers belonging to three services — Indian Police Service (IPS), Indian Ordnance Factories Service and Indian Trade Service. During his interactions, first with the IPS and then with the two other services together, the President advised the probationers to live a life of optimism and make positive changes happen both in their work domains as well as in society at large. He also asked the probationers to stay away from any temptations. Here are the 10 things that the President told the probationers:

To Indian Police Service probationers
1. Members of an All-India Service will no doubt serve in individual states, but they will represent a national idea. 
2. The officers must discharge their duties without fear or favour, and without time delays.
3. They should be unafraid to give the political executive honest and unbiased advice. 
4. The holy book and the constant guide of the officers must be the Constitution.
5. Technology is both a challenge and a tool for policing. While it expands avenues for crimes, technology also allows the police to do its duties with greater efficiency.

To the Indian Ordnance Factories Service probationers
6. Ordnance Factories Service officers should feel proud that they will be managing the country’s Ordnance Factories, which provide our soldiers weapons, ammunition and equipment that they need to protect the country.
7. As managers of the Ordnance Factories, the officers would in a sense be responsible for India’s defence preparedness. (The President also urged them to develop a spirit of innovation so that they could take forward the much-needed modernisation of Ordnance Factories). 

To Indian Trade Service probationers
8. Indian Trade Service officers will play an important role in ensuring that our country regains its strong position in the global trading order. (India’s share in global trade now is around two per cent). 
9. The trade officers' role should no longer be that of trade regulators alone, but they should emerge as trade facilitators.
10. With their knowledge of economics and trade-related operations, they can improve our trade negotiations, suggest trade-friendly policies and initiate procedural simplifications that can facilitate trade.
