Tue, Jul 26, 2016, 05:13 PM
A three-day “Orientation Training Program for Urban Local Body (ULB) Officials of Madhya Pradesh” commenced at Dr. MCR HRD Institute in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

This programme is jointly orgaised by the Telangana state government, in collaboration with Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India, and Directorate of Urban Administration & Development, Madhya Pradesh.

The program is aimed at diversifying and enriching the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of the participants for the effective implementation of Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT).

Vinod K Agrawal, IAS, Director-General, Dr. MCR HRD Institute & E.O. Special Chief Secretary to the Telangana government, in his inaugural address, said that the mind-boggling increase in urbanization had aggravated the already existing problems relating to water supply, sewerage, transport, sanitation, roads, etc. in the urban areas. “It is in this context that AMRUT, with a much bigger mandate and an ambitious scope, assumes great importance, in improving the quality of life in the urban areas.

Vinod Agrawal further said that the requirements for extensive capacity building in ULBs are extremely high not only on account of the number of people to be trained but also in terms of the competencies of the trainers required.

“Continuous capacity building of people who are responsible for addressing the urban challenges is an absolute necessity for bringing about requisite changes in the existing urban governance and management systems”, he added.

He stated that skill development of urban managers, engineers, planners, and decision makers is an absolute necessity for recasting the urban landscape of the country to make it livable, sustainable, smart, and inclusive, besides driving the economic growth of the country.

Vinod Agrawal said that the training program, with its wider scope and learner-centric delivery mechanism, would be greatly instrumental in keeping the trainees abreast of new developments and building a cadre of well-informed and skilled ULB officials in Madhya Pradesh.

He released a copy of the Training Module prepared by the Centre for Urban Development of the Institute.

Professor Ms V Deepa Nair, Course Coordinator, said that Dr MCR HRD Institute, which has been empaneled by the Ministry of Urban Development, Govt. of India, under AMRUT, had lined up a series of capacity building programs throughout 2016-17 for the ULB officials from the length and breadth of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Chandigarh and Madhya Pradesh.

Earlier, Ms Sripratyusha, Faculty, welcomed the gathering. Mr Ram Babu, Project Associate proposed a vote of thanks.
