“Modernisation will be taken up at a cost of Rs. 35 crore”

The Civil Service Training Institute at Bhavanisagar in Erode district, established to impart foundational training to clerical staff, State service officers of various categories and in-service training for deputy tahsildars, will be modernised at Rs. 35 crore, Chief Minister Jayalalithaa told the Assembly on Monday.

Making a suo motu statement, she said it was no exaggeration that training centres played a vital role in improving the skills and knowledge of government employees and officials to ensure efficient functioning of the government machinery.

She said the conference hall, class rooms, hostel buildings, dining halls, staff quarters, trainer hostels, library buildings, hostels of deputy tahsildars and office building were in bad shape and this hampered the training.

“Keeping in mind the need for providing foundational training and make the Civil Service Training Centre into a high-class institute the government will spend Rs. 35 crore,” Ms. Jayalalithaa said.

The amount will be used for constructing class rooms, indoor stadiums, separate room for teachers, building for administrative office and video-conferencing room.
