‘Maharashtra Govt plans training policy for staff’
Mumbai: On the lines of the national
training policy, Maharashtra government is coming out with a
policy for training all rungs of its employees, Minister of
State for General Administration Fauzia Khan said here on Tuesday.
"We have prepared a draft, which will be put up before
the state cabinet for consideration," the minister told PTI.
There is a proposal to have the Pune-based Yashwantrao
Chavan Academy of Development Administration (Yashada), as the
apex training body and a virtual academy, she said.
The academy is the administrative training institute
of the state government and meets the training needs of
government departments and rural and urban non-officials and
At present, there are 108 training institutes, where
the staff is trained, she said.
"I have proposed two kinds of training, the induction
training - at the time of entry and in-service training at
suitable intervals in the employee's career, maybe after a
gap of five years" she said.
The training would be broadly in two categories, the
first one being department-specific and the second one would
be common, aimed at sensitisation and motivation of the staff,
The policy would be on the lines of the national
training policy, the minister added.
"We are also proposing certification and if possible,
linking it to their performance, specially of class C
employees like clerical staff and teachers," Khan said.
