Visit to LBSNA for a Training Programme on 20 July 2007

On 19 July 2007, I participated in a Panel Discussion at the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy (LBSNA). This was part of a training programme for IAS Officers of the 1998 batch from all over the country including promoted officers.

I and another visiting faculty arrived by Jan Shatabdi from Delhi (a 5½ hour journey) and we were met at the Dehradun railway station by a car from the Academy. We got the full treatment with the “Lal Batti” (red light) flashing through all the populated areas on the 36 kms to the Academy.

“The Charleville complex is spread over 69 acres and caters to training of fresh entrants as well as customized courses. Glenmire houses the erstwhile National Institute of Administrative Research (NIAR), and now the National Centre for Good Governance and a residential area of LBSNAA. The Indira Bhawan campus offers facilities for in-service training, other specialized courses, programs, workshops and seminars.”


On 20th July I participated in a panel from 9.00 am – 1.00 pm. The topic was, “GOVERNMENT, BUSINESS, AND GLOBALIZATION”. The panel members were Vijay Mahajan, Deep Joshi, Brij Mohan, Sachin Sachdeva, Ajit Mani.

At that time, I was in Bhopal working as the Benefit Monitoring & Evaluation Consultant for the Urban Water Supply & Environment Improvement Programme (UWSEIP), Madhya Pradesh, ADB Loan No. 2046-IND (2006-2009).
