Shri Vaishnaw said, “be it Railways, Post, CSC or BSNL, all are service related departments and service industries require a different mindset as the interaction with customers and stakeholders in continuous and tt has a deep impact on the customers and the entire network. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi always says “Mind is never a problem, Mindset is,” and therefore, we need to make our mindsets solution oriented. Problems are faced by all but how we find solutions for these problems is important and this makes the difference between success and failure. Our thoughts dominate our action and these actions create our destiny”.

The Union Minister further stated, “Huge investments are being made in all four departments under the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi led government and we have long term investment plans as they will lay the foundations for a ‘Viksit Bharat’ or developed nation. We should keep up the spirit and never be satisfied with our performance and always work towards a higher objective. By 2047 we need to make a ‘Viksit Bharat’ and we all have to work towards achieving this goal together”.

The Chairperson of the Railway Board, Ms. Jaya Varma Sinha, said, “it is a proud moment to be a part of the Annual Capacity Building Plan. Indian Railway, being the largest civil employer, has to have a robust training plan and it is very important to train and enhance capacities for all employees so as to improve our service delivery”. The Chairperson thanked the Capacity Building Commission for helping Indian Railways draft the capacity building plan. The Annual Capacity Building Plan of Railways has been prepared in partnership with the Railway Board, and the main tasks have been identified. Competencies and requirements mapped out for holistic development at the Individual and organisational level.

The Secretary, Department of Telecommunication said, “We will try to make the training process more dynamic in nature and ensure that it does not remain a one-time exercise. We would like to train people not just for their current work profile but also for the services they aspire for. We will make the training for vibrant and more role based rather than rule based.

Secretary, MEITY said this is a detailed exercise down to the lowest level in the Ministry. Over 6000 officers have undertaken 8000 courses, and we are helping create content for the government. The key outcome has been the training for CSCs. The training has made a significant difference, and we will ensure that new courses are added routinely.

The Secretary, Department of Posts asserted, “right from the beginning we were involved proactively with training and on 22nd June 2022, we launched a ‘Dak Karmayogi Portal’ and today we are at a good stage. Over 1.25 lakh staff joined for role based improvement in service delivery through training. We will try to ensure technology enabled workforce keeping in view the national level and ensure there is training on demand through knowledge experts. We have created master trainers and domain experts.
