Training on reservation policy in Kochi

cochinThere were times when backward classes did not get the proper privilege of reservation policies no matter how much educated they were. Eligible candidates who deserved, did not get a chance to expose themselves but now situation is somewhat improving. To make it even better, training on reservation policy will be given to government liaison officers. The programme will be held at hotel Taj Malabar in Cochin from August 24 to 26. The delegates taking part in the training programme will be liaison officers from various departments and ministries. The department of personnel and training (DoPT) has issued a letter to government ministries and departments to nominate their liaison officers for the training programme. Various government departments and ministries are requested to send their nominees along with the non-refundable fee of Rs. 17,648 per participant. The training will be imparted by the Institute of Public Administration, Bangalore.

Even after 12 years of the government introducing the post-based schedules, liaison officers have no idea about what should be done with the reservation policy. The Constitution Bench of Supreme Court has held that reservation of jobs for the backward classes should apply to posts and not to vacancies but this is not what’s happening in reality. There are few among the liaison officers not aware of this fact.

The training programme is the one chance the liaison officers can take advantage of. They will be given training on the reservation policy of the government regarding SC, ST and OBCs. The liaison officers will have a good time in this picturesque town to find out a solution to the long pending issue of reservation. Now, they can brush up their brains in a cool manner away from their day to day hectic official schedules.  Who knows one fine day they will come up with solutions about what should be done with the reservation policy!
