The Centre has planned a training schedule for bureaucrats in association with Ministry of Defence.
With such an initiative, the government hopes it will foster a better coordination between the bureaucracy and the Army and will help officers to deal with future challenges to national security in a much better way.
A letter written by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT ) read, “Such interactions are likely to benefit both the Armed Forces and Civil Services officers by mutual learning from each other’s strength and also by imbibing the best points of each other’s work culture, ethos and customs.”
A detailed programme has been prepared by the DoPT, Training Division in consultation with MoD for the various programmes to be conducted at training institutes across the country.
The programme will be held at four cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Jaipur between October, 2018 and April 2019.
DoPT has requested for nominations of at least three officers, one each from lAS, IPS and IFoS (DM/ADM; SSP/SP/Addl. SP and DFO level), from every State for participation in the Programme.
