By IndianMandarins- 07 Jul 2020


Union Minister for Personnel and PMO Dr Jitendra Singh inaugurated IAS Professional Course Phase-II (2018 Batch) of Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, Mussoorie through a video conference.

Dr Singh said that Civil Services in 2020 have assumed a Pan-Indian character in a true sense as it has representation from almost all States and UTs in the last couple of years. For a heterogeneous country like India, it’s a huge asset and in tune with the dream of the founding father of Civil Services in India Sardar Patel.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said that officers have an opportunity to become the architect of New India, the foundation of which was laid down by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said that in the 73rd year of Independence, India stands tall, strong and is looking at the future with great hope and potential. A diverse country like ours owes its sustenance to the constant efforts by the government to understand its citizens, work with them with a common goal of development in mind and inspire them to excel in every field of existence.

Over the last 10 weeks, India has shown to the world that despite the crippling Corona crisis, the show goes on here as smoothly as during the pre-pandemic times. Referring to the first-ever online inauguration of IAS Professional Course, he expressed satisfaction that out of 185 participants, nearly 125 are from engineering and other professional backgrounds and he added that this will go a long way in meeting the modern-day developmental challenges facing India. He also pointed out that the presence of 50 lady officers in the batch is a real testimony of the “Women Empowerment” mantra espoused by the Narendra Modi Government.
