|Rule Based to Role Based:work allocations can be done by matching an official’s competencies to the requirements of the post.||John Maynard Keynes, the economist, once said that “The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones.”|
|Domain Training:Will focus on functional and behavioural competencies also.||A tendency in the Bureaucracy to resist the change which challenges their status quo.|
|Uniform Training Standard: will harmonise training standards across the country thus understanding of India’s aspirations and development goals.||Person in authority too should have the requisite skill and experience in that particular area.|
|Vision For New India: aimed at building a future-ready civil service with the right attitude, skills and knowledge.||There should be a behavioural change in the bureaucracy too-a need of the hour and not an attack on their status quo.|
|On Site Learning:will emphasize on ‘on-site learning’ to complement the ‘off-site’ learning.||These online courses must not become another opportunity for the officers to go for the sabbatical leaves.|
|Adoption Of Best Practices: will encourage and partner with content creators including public training institutions, universities, start-tips and individual experts.||Equally culpable is the political interference which manifests itself in transfers which must be addressed too.|
Ashok Khemka, the IAS officer from Haryana, is a living testimony of it who has been transferred 52 times so far in his career.
While this is a welcome move, it is also a fact that bureaucratic sloth is only one side of the coin,the reform process is not going to be easy but this is a good move in the direction.
