Sibal announces entrepreneurship programme for postal department officials
New Delhi, June 27(ANI): Union Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal on Monday announced an entrepreneurship programme for skill and capacity development of the officials of the postal department.
Under the programme, the employees of the postal department would be trained so that they can start their own business after serving their jobs.
"What we intend to do is, is launch a comprehensive time bound programme and it's for skill development and capacity. So, we are going to have a Gramin Dak Sevaks (Village Postman) go through a particular course for development of skills and for capacity development and they run about 3.25 such Gramin Dak sevak employees in India on the postal department," Sibal said while conferring the 'Meghdoot Awards 2011' to postal department officials in New Delhi.
"We are going to empower them and ensure that they actually become entrepreneurs, where ever they are," he added.
The Telecom Minister also said that the country's postal department has to get progressive developments and adopt good marketing strategy with an aim to enhance its image in this rapidly changing world of technology.
"The postal department has not got the kind of, what should I say, 'publicity' and the kind of posturing that the postal department deserves because I think it's perhaps one of the most important, historically and otherwise, department of the Government of India and I want the postal department to be right up there along with the other departments," Sibal said.
This scheme of national awards known as 'Meghdoot Awards' was instituted in 1984 to provide encouragement to the postal employees by recognizing performance of high standard.
The awards are given every year to the officials selected from amongst the nominations received from various postal circles. (ANI)
