Central Government to hold stress relief programmes for officers: Dr. Jitendra Singh

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh has said here today that the Govt of India’s Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) will hold a series of regular “stress relief” and rejuvenating programmes including Yoga, workshops, sports, cultural events, etc. for IAS, Civil Services and other government officers in order to help them maintain a conducive frame of mind and ensure a harmonious well-being. At the same time, DoPT has also mooted a “stress management” segment in the Induction course for new employees joining State Services in the three States of Jammu & Kashmir, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra, and based on the experience from these three States, the same practice would be replicated in other States as well.

Dr Jitendra Singh said such efforts not only help in rejuvenating the energies and spirits of officers who are subjected to increasing work load and office stress but also help in bringing together the fraternity of civil service officers from all over India thus promoting a spirit of comradeship among them.

Increasing accountability and rising expectation level in administrative work tend to take their toll, said Dr Jitendra Singh and therefore, in-house provisions for stress management are called for. In this context, he referred to a two-day “Stress management” programme for officers being organized at New Delhi on 28th and 29th of this month followed by a Yoga course for officers beginning from April in forty different centers across India.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, the DoPT will not only plan events for government officials but will also devise programmes for their children in the form of academic tutorials, summer coaching camps, etc.

CBI seeks CBEC Officers on loan basis to investigate complex cases including those on financial crimes

 CBI has sought customs and central excise officers on loan to help it investigate complex cases, including those on financial crimes.  CBI Director Anil Sinha has written to Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) seeking nominations of eligible officers.

The agency which is entrusted with probe of various economic offences lacks officers with expertise in taxation and accounting related matters which are must for deciphering white-collar crimes.

"As you are aware that Central Bureau of Investigation is a predominantly deputationist organisations, hence we keep requiring services of officers from different organisations for induction.

"This would be advantageous for both the organisations," Sinha said in a letter to CBEC chairman Kaushal Srivastava.

The Bureau would utilise the expertise and experience of the officers for investigation of complex cases and after their repatriation the experience gained by them in CBI would benefit the parent organisations, Sinha said seeking nomination of Indian Revenue Service (Customs and Central Excise) officials.

The CBI is looking on deputation basis suitable and eligible officers with impeccable integrity and outstanding annual confidential reports to fill nine posts in the rank of Superintendents of Police (SPs). These posts are to be filled by officers other than those belonging to Indian Police Service (IPS).
