Dr MCR HRD Institute enrolled over 20, 000 field staff in different districts of the State to impart training on 12 soft skills modules and three domain-specific modules on RTI, Office Procedures, and Finance & Accounts, apart from Sustainable Development Goals.

During the last two years, over 40, 000 field staff belonging to different departments were trained in the State that marks a new milestone in achieving the goal of ‘training for all, said BP Acharya, Director General of the Institute.

To ensure decentralized implementation of the e-Learning training program, fully equipped and dedicated computer labs were set up by the institute in all its Regional Training Centres in districts.

The Institute is also mentoring other states such as Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, J&K, Odisha, Uttarakhand, and Gujarat to train the trainers for e-Learning training program and develop modules in regional languages, Acharya said.

At the request of NITI Aayog and Government of India, a national module on SDGs was also prepared by the Institute.
