Civil Service Training in India
In India in recent years, civil service training has acquired increasing recognition, not only as a strategy for achieving organizational goals, but also as an important means of inducing, even sustaining, change. As a result, there is a growing realization among political leadership and administrators that training is also a major tool for effective administration. Indeed, as the pace of all-around change increases, the need for thoughtfully planned and designed training becomes more evident. There is also much talk about the need to develop - through training and related measures - appropriate competencies among each individual working in India's government. Such competencies should be both generic and general, which are related to the level and category of the post at which the individual is working, as well as domain-specific and related to the specific schemes and programs with whose formulation and implementation the employee is associated. The 25 essays in this book comprehensively trace the entire gamut of all issues pertinent to training of civil servants in India.
