Comprehensive training programme for Railway employees to boost productivity, efficiency

A comprehensive training programme for Railway employees to boost productivity & efficiency is being launched under the name “Project Saksham”, an official release said today.
The week-long training in skills and domain knowledge will be imparted to all the employees of Indian Railways. The focus of all such training is to "make a difference" to the job performance, an official press release said.
Under this plan, all employees in each zone will be put through a week’s training in skills and knowledge relevant to their work area over the next one year. A communication to this effect from Railway Board Chairman Ashwani Lohani has been sent to General Managers of all zonal railways and railway production units.
General Managers have been advised that such priority training need should be quickly identified for each category of employees (employees can be grouped into their work areas) based on the needs of respective zone. Identification of training needs and formulation of planned training calendar will be required to be completed by December 31, 2017, ensuring that each employee is imparted training.
Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has emphasized that while continuous learning and education/training has been an integral philosophy and approach of the Railways, there is a need to do a concentrated capsule of training for all employees in a short period of time to boost their productivity and efficiency. This training programme will fulfil this need.
With growing rail network, new trains, different high quality services designed by the railways and the promise of the government to deliver superior and safe rail services and growing expectation of our passengers and commuters for better amenities and services, it is imperative that the railway employees rise to the occasion to deliver on the promise.
Employees can and do deliver only when they have the right skills, knowledge and the mindset to deliver to the new standards of excellence that the organization hold from them all. This training will help achieve these objectives.
This training will be a five-day on the job training or as classroom training in Railway Training Centre. However, the reporting managers of all employees receiving training will be actively involved in the pre-training and post training process to ensure that the benefits of training get reflected on the job performance and there is improvement within a short time after the training is imparted.
The training, as per the calendar, will be completed within nine months. General Managers have been directed to personally monitor the completion of the plans and their progress.
