MCRHRD Institute launches e-Learning program
Dr. MCR HRD Institute of Telangana launched its first-of-its-kind e-Learning program for cutting-edge level functionaries of Ranga Reddy District. The total duration of training will be for 28 hours in which e-Training will be for 20 hours covering 12 generic and three domain-specific e-modules, to be completed over a period of next 60 days.
S Niranjan Reddy, Vice Chairman, Telangana State Planning Board called upon extensive use of Information & Communication Technology (ICT), considering the fact that it is being successfully used across the globe for the delivery of all public services. He also stated that e-Training of employees is the need of the hour as they are the bridge between the Government and the people. He said the Chief Minister, who is a great friend of employees, expects them to contribute to the growth trajectory of the State in a big way, rather than confining themselves merely to their limited job description. “Employees should understand the felt needs of people, find enduring solutions to them, and serve with a missionary zeal”, he said and added, with a sense of optimism, that the e-Training will empower them to play a more constructive role in the changing perspective of the State.
Dr Devesh Chaturvedi, IAS, Joint Secretary, DoPT, Govt. of India said in the past training effort focused mainly on the Group A and Group B officers. However, he added, there is a major shift in the priorities of the Government of India and the training needs of Group C and Group D employees are receiving the attention that they richly deserve. “The selection of six States from across the country, namely, Assam, Haryana, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, and Telangana to impart e-Training to 82,000 employees during 2017-’18 is a step in this direction”, he said and added that its focus is to bring about a major transformation in the soft skills and attitudes of employees.
B P Acharya, IAS, Spl. Chief Secretary & DG, Dr. MCR HRD Institute of Telangana said that Government has conceptualised and launched a number of innovative schemes for the multifaceted development of the State and broad-based welfare of the people. However, he added, the employees hold the key for their ultimate success. “It is in this context that the selection of Dr MCR HRD Institute by the DoPT, Govt. of India to roll out e-Learning modules for 9000 cutting edge functionaries assumes great significance”, he stated and added that the inclusion of Heads Masters and Teachers in the e-Learning Program will benefit the three lakh students studying in 6000 schools in the long run.
