The reorganization of Telangana districts, from 10 to 33, has not only provided for focused and better administration but also brought in multiple benefits to the Government employees in terms of challenging assignments and exciting promotion opportunities, said the Vice Chairman of the Telangana State Planning Board B Vinod Kumar.
Delivering his valedictory speech at concluding 6-week Foundation Course for Director Recruit Group-II Service Officers of Telangana State at Dr MCR HRD Institute here today, Vinod Kumar stated that the reorganization of districts has also enabled officers to ensure effective launching, monitoring, and implementation of ambitious programs of Government and thereby changing people’s perceptions towards governance and giving them confidence that administration is accessible to them.
“Telangana State has introduced several reforms in irrigation, industry, infrastructure, education, health, welfare, etc., and thereby emerged as a role model for other State Governments, from across the country”, he said, with a sense of pride, and called upon the Officers to contribute their best efforts to this challenging growth trajectory.
State Govt Advisor for Finance, Dr G R Reddy, who was the Guest of Honor, advised the Officer Trainees to contribute their optimum best to enriching the quality of governance, which ultimately determines the fate of nations, rather than mere availability of resources. He advised the Officer Trainees to learn continuously, contribute to the process of innovation in governance, face the challenges head-on, and serve different sections of society in order to fully realize the dream of Bangaru Telangana.
DG of the Institute & Spl Chief Secretary BP Acharya, in his Presidential Address, said that the Foundation Course for 475 Group-II Officers is the largest-ever training program conducted by the Institute. Continuing his address, he stated that Group-II Officers work at the middle rungs of the administrative hierarchy, which is a unique characteristic of their positions, and, therefore, represent an important component of the structure of governance. He, therefore, advised them not only to help their higher-ups in taking right decisions but also motivating and mentoring lower-level officers.
MCRHRDIT Alumni Connect (MAC) Launched
BP Acharya also launched “MCRHRDIT Alumni Connect (MAC)” on the occasion by unveiling its Logo, for a live interface between All India Services, Central Civil Services, and Military Engineering Services Officers and the Institute. About 1000 Officers, who underwent training at the Institute in the recent past, will be taking an active part in its activities. Over 50 Officers, from across the country, who joined the ceremony, via virtual mode, stated that they cherish the fond memories of their stay at the Institute and are committed to using “MCRHRDIT Alumni Connect” as a vehicle to conceptualize and execute mutually-beneficial initiatives.
ADG of the Institute Harpreet Singh, in his address, advised the Officer Trainees to interact with people not only to fully understand their problems but also to find enduring solutions. “This initiative will go a long way in giving a big boost to the image of officers as the champions of development and welfare of people, especially their poor counterparts”, he added.
Dr G R Reddy, IES (Retd) and BP Acharya gave away prizes to winners in different competitions, conducted as a part of the Foundation Course for the Group-II Officers. Sub-Inspector (Prohibition & Excise Department) Harpreet Singh bagged the trophy for Best All Round Performance.
