India to train Bangladeshi Civil Servants at Mussoorie
A batch Bangladeshi civil servant will be trained at the National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG), Mussoorie in Uttarakhand for a period between 2019-2025. NCGG is an institute under Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG).
Background: This training is based on a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in February 2019 between National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG) and Ministry of Public Administration, Government of Bangladesh, in this regard during 5th meeting of the India-Bangladesh Joint Consultative Commission (JCC). This is 2nd time that NCGG has signed an MOU for a training programme for Bangladesh civil servants. Under the 1st MOU signed 5 years ago, 1,500 Bangladesh civil servants were trained by NCGG.
Training Areas: public policy and implementation, e- governance and service delivery, information technology (IT), decentralization, ethics in Administration, urban development and planning and challenges in implementation of sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The training batch will consist of a total of 1800 Bangladeshi mid-career civil servants.
The 1st batch consisting of 30 civil servants leaving for a two-week long training programme at Mussoorie have already paid a visit to Indian High Commission in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
This collaboration represents a historic milestone in training and capacity building programmes between India and Bangladesh.
Such trainings provide an opportunity to share experiences of administration between civil servants of two countries and help in establishing strong bilateral relations.
Since the thrust of civil services has now moved towards development activities rather than administration therefore civil servants of India and Bangladesh knowing each other would help foster deeper ties between two countries.
