Show Summary Details


This chapter examines in-service training for civil servants in India. In addition to making the trainees functionally competent and efficient, training for civil servants in India must be attuned to several goals. These include inculcating in the recruits the respect for the traditions of parliamentary democracy which India has adopted, fostering an essentially national outlook, and making the trainees programme-oriented. This chapter describes the specific training required for the Indian Administrative Services (IAS), the Indian Police Service (IPS), and the Indian Foreign Service (IFS).
