Aim

The initiative aims at “competent civil services for good governance”.

About the Integrated Government Online Training Programme

  • The programme, developed by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), Ministry of Personnel, will make training inputs available to a government servant on-site and on flextime basis.

  • The minister also launched a hybrid course on administrative laws developed by the DoPT in collaboration with premier law institute National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru

  • On the occasion, a RTI Portal on judgments and orders of the Supreme Court, high courts and Central Information Commission, was also launched, the statement said.

  • It provides a learning environment for all stakeholders under which a repository on the landmark cases on the RTI will be available at one place, it said.

  • Speaking on the occasion, Singh said the launch of these initiatives on the eve of ‘good governance day’ shows the government’s commitment to “maximum governance, minimum government”.

Need for the New System

  • It has been a practice in the government that, from time to time, the officers at different levels and in different departments are expected to undergo upgradation courses, reorientation courses and several other specialized courses, for which they are granted leave and they have to abstain themselves from their official duties for the period of training.

  • With the new innovative launch, it will be possible for officers to undergo such training courses without abstaining themselves from the office, without taking leave and at a much more cost-effective manner without even leaving the station.

  • The new hi-tech system, he said, will also make it easy to adopt the latest international trends in the field of training which has a special significance, considering the fact that India is now emerging as a global player in a big way.
