THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Cabinet on Wednesday issued its nod for the new state training policy, to be introduced to improve efficiency of government employees. The Institute of Management in Government (IMG) will coordinate the training programme.

The policy has been made to increase the efficiency of employees while making them people-friendly, corrupt-free and responsible officials. Considering the changes in various sectors, the policy focuses on transparency, e-governance and people’s participation. With the new policy, the government attempts to make the civil service a public service system, said an official communication.

Each officer should undergo public training at least thrice during the service period. There will be short-term training conducted in every two years. A calendar indicating the training to be attended by each officer will be prepared in the beginning of each year.

The Cabinet decided to formulate a training policy with KILA as nodal agency, to increase the efficiency of local bodies. A high-level council will be set up under the chief secretary to enact the state training policy.
