NEW DELHI, Apr 21 : Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh, who is also Minister-Incharge Personnel, has hailed the civil servants’ yeoman service in India’s fight against Corona.
In a nationwide video conference interaction with Secretaries, General Administration Department (GAD) / Personnel from different States and Union Territories on the occasion of Civil Services Day today, Dr Jitendra Singh said, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra  Modi, India has emerged as a frontline Corona Warrior in the community of world nations, and the yeoman service rendered by civil servants has contributed substantially in making this possible. He particularly commended Collectors, Deputy Commissioners and DMs  in over 700 districts across the country, who are working diligently and judiciously, and at the same time carrying along the civil society with them in perfect harmony.
Dr Jitendra Singh  disclosed that ever since the Corona crisis began, he has been regularly in touch either on telephone or through video conferencing with several District Collectors and District Commissioners across the country and the self-confidence and decisiveness with which they are working is a vindication of the Modi Government’s decision to introduce 3 months mentorship for new IAS entrants as Assistant Secretaries in the Central Government, which has helped them gain new perspective in crisis management. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave us the Mantra “Minimum Government, Maximum Governance” and these young administrators have actually lived up to it by demonstrating skills of efficient  governance and “on-the-spot” decision making.
Dr Jitendra Singh  said, while the senior officers in the government are playing an equally important part in managing the Corona crisis, he hailed the successful  “CARUNA” platform, which has brought together 29 service associations in an endeavour to support the government in managing the Corona crisis and other disasters. He complemented the civil servants for their support to Government’s COVID 19 relief operations by offering one day salary to the Prime Minister’s CARES Fund and their support to COVID 19 relief operations by contributing more than Rs 4227 crore.
Dr Jitendra Singh also expressed satisfaction that so far more than 1,44,736 persons have enrolled at the DoPT’se-learning platform (https://igot.gov.in) to combat COVID, which was launched on 8th of this Month and about 96,268 candidates completed the course. The target group is Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, Hygiene Workers, Technicians, Auxiliary Nursing Midwives (ANMs), Central & State Govt. Officers, Civil Defence Officials, various Police Organisations, National Cadet Corps (NCC), Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS), National Service Scheme (NSS), Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS), Bharat Scouts & Guides (BSG) and other volunteers.
