There is a proposal to reduce the tenure of induction programme for officers inducted to Indian Administrative Service (IAS) from eight weeks to six weeks. The induction Training Programme will entail four weeks of Academic instruction and two weeks of site visits within India and abroad. The Academic instruction will include inputs on public administration, law and Constitution of India, economics, management and behavioural sciences and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Two weeks site visits will include exposure to good governance practices within India and abroad.
This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri B.Vinod Kumar in the Lok Sabha.
