UPSC Essentials: Get inspired- What was APJ Abdul Kalam’s oath for Civil Servants?

 

A.P.J Abdul Kalam is a role model for many aspirants. Know about his message, oath and idea of a societal grid for civil servants. Enrich your answers in Essay, GS, Ethics and shape your personality with Kalam's words of wisdom.

Written by Manas Srivastava | New Delhi | June 26, 2022 1:49:21 pm

During his presidency, A.P.J Abdul Kalam used to visit civil services probationers at Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, Mussoorie. Civil servants in the making would go to Rashtrapati Bhavan before their final posting. He always encouraged the civil servants to be creative and follow the innovative leadership style. People’s President A.P.J Abdul Kalam’s words of wisdom take us back to basics. What was his message for civil servants? Let us know.

Relevance: Use it for value addition in your essay, GS II-Role of Civil Services in a Democracy, GS IV Ethics, Personality test. Moreover, read it and apply also in order to remain motivated in your own journey of preparation for the civil services and beyond it as a good and ethical citizen.

At the start of the service, a young officer is ethically upright and resolute for integrity. However, as time progresses, how can they continue to follow the same values with strong determination?

Kalam believed that young officers entering governance have to determine a long-term goal for which they will be remembered. This goal will inspire them at all times during their career and help them overcome all problems. Young bureaucrats of our nation must remember that when they undertake difficult missions, there will be problems but we have to defeat the problems and succeed.

How can a civil servant tackle the problem of the corrupt political system which leads to compromise on ethical standards?

Kalam was in charge of large missions with huge human capital investment involved. His message to young officers was very clear. Young officers can establish a brand of integrity for themselves. It will keep away all those who want them to compromise their ethics. He cautions that there may be some problems. But, finally, the best in human beings will find a way to succeed.

If the job of a civil servant is to provide good governance to the nation, how can this objective be realised?

According to Kalam, governance is judged by how proactive and responsive to people’s needs it is. Governance should help people lead a life that is morally upright, intellectually superior and of high quality. This is possible through the acquisition and enrichment of knowledge.

Kalam suggested to evolve a Societal Grid which comprises of a Knowledge Grid, Health Grid and E-governance grid that feed into the PURA Grid.

Note: Provision of Urban Amenities to Rural Areas (PURA) is a strategy for rural development in India. This concept was given by former president Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

Knowledge grid– It will empower citizens with appropriate knowledge in a democratic way, thereby ensuring the growth of knowledge society.

Health grid– It will ensure that the benefits of quality health care services reach the needy. This will enhance their quality of life and increase individual productivity. This will lead to faster development of nation.

E-governance grid– It will lead to transparency in government services and ensure that they reach all the people uniformly without and dilution of quantum or quality.

Kalam was of an opinion that if these grids complement each other and connect India’s villages, the villages will be empowered and our country can have empowered growth. According to Kalam, “empowered villages ensure good and smart governance.” He was confident that the Societal grid model is technologically possible and will help us achieve the goal of transforming India into a developed nation.

What thought a civil servant must always remember to keep himself motivated?

According to Kalam, civil servants must always remember the inspiring words of Maharshi Patanjali (Yoga Sutra, more than 2000 years ago).

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

During his presidency, civil service probationers would come to Rashtrapati Bhavan and take a five-point oath from him. What was Kalam’s five-point oath for civil servants?

Kalam’s five-point oath for civil servants-

1. I will work towards 100 percent literacy among the people of the region where I work and also ensure that no child drops out of school.

2. I will ensure that the status of women is enriched and work towards parity between girls and boys.

3. I will ensure that no one can lead me to the temptation of corruption.

4. During my tenure in any district, I will ensure that a minimum of one lakh trees are planted and maintained.

5. I will work towards the execution of at least five PURA complexes in the district where I am posted and create employment opportunities for at least 25 per cent of the people through the creation of rural enterprises.

Key takeaways

1. Kalam’s five-point oath for civil servants revolved around literacy, status of women, integrity, environment, PURA and employment.

2. Kalam asked civil servant to recall the words of wisdom by Patanjali.

3. Kalam suggested to evolve a Societal Grid which comprises of a Knowledge Grid, Health Grid and E-governance grid that feed into the PURA Grid.

4. Young officers can establish a brand of integrity for themselves.

Point to ponder: The bureaucracy is trained and known for maintaining status quo. In this context how can a civil servant be creative, innovative and ethically upright?

ITI students can now take admission in Engg second year

The state technical education department has allowed choice-based lateral entry into second year in polytechnic colleges for students who have completed two-year diploma from Industrial Training Institute (ITI) from this academic year

PUNE News | Published on Jun 21, 2022 01:18 AM IST  

The state technical education department has allowed choice-based lateral entry into second year in polytechnic colleges for students who have completed two-year diploma from Industrial Training Institute (ITI) from this academic year. 

The notification issued by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to the director of technical education in Maharashtra will benefit ITI pass-outs seeking admission in polytechnic colleges.

The earlier criteria for second-year admission in engineering diploma was Class 10 plus two years with Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Electronics, Biotechnology, Agriculture and other engineering courses.

The latest AICTE notification will allow Class 10 students plus two years of ITI course to be eligible for admission to second-year diploma courses in polytechnic colleges. The affiliating body will offer bridge courses such as Mathematics, Physics, engineering drawing for students coming from diverse background.

“The relaxation is granted because students already pursuing Minimum Competency and Vocational Courses (MCVC) courses stand deprived of engineering courses. DTE Maharashtra is informed that as of the academic year 2024-25 the current norms (or any subsequent amendments to it) shall prevail. Therefore, DTE Maharashtra may issue a notice giving clarification for the same to be applied for admission to lateral entry diploma courses in engineering and technology for the next two years,” said Prof Rajive Kumar, AICTE member secretary, in his letter to state technical education directorate. 

Abhay Wagh, director, technical education, issued a circular on June 15 regarding the change in admission process.

“This change is only for two years - 2022-23 and 2023-24. So, we appeal to students to take maximum benefit of these changes,” said Wagh.

Amol Bhor, a student who has completed MCVC course and willing to take admission in polytechnic, said, “I want to pursue a career in biotechnology and the latest decision will help me save one year of diploma and directly take admission in the second year.”

AICTE Welcomes CCS Approved Agneepath’ Scheme, Apex Technical Council Pledges Induction of the Scheme in Higher Education & NCF

 Source: https://indiaeducationdiary.in/aicte-welcomes-ccs-approved-agneepath-scheme-apex-technical-council-pledges-induction-of-the-scheme-in-higher-education-ncf/

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has welcomed the ‘Agnipath Scheme’ launched by the Ministry of Defense, empowering the youth in defence training and securing the nation.

It is to be noted that Agnipath Scheme is a pan-India short-term service youth recruitment scheme for the armed forces. Recruits, called Agniveers, will serve in varied terrains — desert, mountain, land, sea, or air for 4 years.

Under the Agnipath scheme, 45,000 to 50,000 soldiers will be recruited annually, and most will leave the service in just 4 years. Of the total annual recruits, only 25% will be allowed to continue for another 15 years under permanent commission.

AICTE Chairperson Dr. Anil Sahasrabudhe hailed the initiative of the government and said, ”

We welcome this brilliant initiative by the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi led Cabinet Committee on Security and the Defense Ministry. It will increase employment opportunities and because of the skills acquired by the youth during 4 years of their service, they will get employment in various fields. AICTE will give due credits to the experiential learning they undergo as per NCF framework.”

The Chairperson also emphasised how AICTE will be working towards recognition of the skill gained during their service in the armed forces under AGNIPATH as per the framework of UGC / AICTE to be accounted for graduation program.


 

 

 

‘AICTE survey will help colleges identify learning gaps so that students can be industry-ready’, says Prof MP Poonia

 Source: https://indianexpress.com/article/india/aicte-survey-will-help-colleges-identify-learning-gaps-so-that-students-can-be-industry-ready-7970154/

All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) vice-chairman Prof MP Poonia believes the PARAKH survey undertaken by the council will help colleges identify learning gaps so that students can be made industry-ready while they are pursuing their courses.

On Monday, The Indian Express reported that the survey, undertaken between last September and June 7, has found that first year engineering students are struggling with maths more than any other core subject. It has also recommended structural reforms in the civil engineering branch which lags behind other disciplines.

Why was PARAKH launched?

The industry is looking for problem-solving, decision-making abilities among students. They want students capable of critical thinking, offering fresh ideas. The objective of PARAKH is improving higher order thinking skills among students. We are also testing academic skills but it is more about assessing to what extent students can tackle unknown problems. It goes beyond improving the employability factor of students.

How have you tried to address the problem of not enough engineering graduates getting jobs?

If you are able to solve solutions, people will run after you with jobs. See, if the industry says that a student lacks ability after he leaves the education system, it is of no value. Issues should be addressed while the student is in the system. We can take corrective measures then, be it in the form of syllabus change, changes in teaching-learning process, internships to make a student industry-ready so that a student is technically sound and professionally-competent.

How was PARAKH designed?

We followed the Bloom’s Taxonomy model in drawing up the questions. Around 40,000 to 45,000 teachers were trained to create a question bank for the test. The involvement of industry is not much in the question drafting process for now but we are trying to address that aspect also.

Students can now pursue PhD after 4-year undergraduate course

 Source: https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/students-can-now-pursue-phd-after-4-year-undergraduate-course/articleshow/92191368.cms

  Students with a minimum CGPA score of 7.5/10 in the four-year-undergraduate programme (FYUP) will now be eligible for PhD admissions, without having to complete a master’s programme, according to the new regulations on award of PhD degree finalised by the University Grants Commission (UGC). In order to arrest the trend of publishing in predatory journals, the new regulations recommend either patenting or publishing in peer-reviewed or referred journals only.
The University Grants Commission (Minimum Standards and Procedure for Award of PhD degree) Regulations 2022 are likely to be announced by end of June and set to come into effect from the forthcoming 2022-23 academic session.

Giving a boost to FYUP introduced under the National Education Policy (NEP), the regulations state that “a candidate seeking admission after a 4-year/ 8 semester Bachelor’s degree should have a minimum CGPA of 7.5/10,” while offering a relaxation of 0.5 CGPA score on a scale of 10 for candidates from SC/ ST/ OBC/ differently-abled as well as economically weaker sections.

“Encouraging four-year undergraduate students with a research bent of mind to do PhD is important to improve the research ecosystem in our HEIs. That is why we are permitting four-year UG students who have a CGPA of 7.5/10 or above to be eligible for PhD admission. Those who have a CGPA less than 7.5, will have to do a one-year Master’s degree to be eligible,” said UGC Chairperson M Jagadesh Kumar.

As per the new regulations, 40% of the vacant seats can be filled through university-level tests. Two modes of admissions — 100% based on national level entrance tests or 60-40 split based on national level entrance tests and university level or state-level entrance tests have been recommended.

If the total vacant seats are filled by the candidates qualifying in the national level entrance tests (conducted by UGC, CSIR, ICMR, ICAR, etc), the selection of such candidates will be based on a merit list with 100% weightage from interview/ viva conducted by the higher education institution.

A blend of culture and technology can create resilience to future challenges. To make India a complete digitally skilled economy, we need to de-commercialize digital education and make it more accessible for all, in other words, make digital education a mass movement in India, said," Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister of Education and Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Govt of India.

Dr. Buddha Chandrashekar, Chief Coordinating Officer, AICTE, added, Digital skills are augmenting at an unprecedented speed and students across levels need this fuel for a long career mileage. He lamented that the supply-demand skill gap rate comes to 21.1 per cent where reskilling becomes the need of the hour. “I firmly believe that the NEP policy is a game-changer to make India a frontline digital economy to produce millions of top skilled labor talent. I am indebted to corporates and EdTech’s who under the digital skilling initiative are creating opportunities to empower one crore digital workforce in the next six months," he said.

Ministry of Education, AICTE and AWS to Upskill Students in India in Cloud Computing and Machine Learning

  |

New Delhi  : The Ministry of Education is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) with an aim to impart cloud computing and machine learning (ML) skills to higher education students in India. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), a statutory body under the Ministry, and Amazon Internet Services Private Limited (AISPL), which undertakes the resale and marketing of AWS in India. This new collaboration extends the Ministry’s efforts to enable students with critical technology skills, and strengthen the focus to build a future-ready digitally-skilled workforce in India. Thousands of AICTE-affiliated colleges in the country will extend this initiative to benefit students.

Dr. Buddha Chandrashekhar, Chief Coordinating Officer, AICTE, said, “Digital skilling on future technologies at a national scale is a key priority for the Ministry of Education. Skilling our students in cloud computing and machine learning is especially crucial to not only ensure employability for our students, but also to build capacity in these critical skills that will define the industries of tomorrow. We are pleased that an industry leader like AWS is committed to work with AICTE to support the Indian government’s vision for skilling to create an Atmanirbhar Bharat.”

Sunil PP, Lead—Education, Space, and Nonprofits, Amazon Internet Services Private Limited, AWS India and South Asia, said, “Over the course of the pandemic, we have seen organizations of all sizes accelerate their digital transformation plans by several years, driving an increased need for employers and their workers to advance skills training for cloud computing, cybersecurity, and machine learning. AWS recognizes this as a national priority, and today’s announcement of the MoU with the Ministry of Education is part of our continued commitment to support the government in developing India’s technology talent and strengthening the country’s digital economy.”

Through the MoU, AWS will provide students access to AWS Educate (www.awseducate.com), a program that offers self-paced online cloud learning resources and labs, designed to help people learn, practice, and evaluate cloud skills. The program’s easy-to-navigate and adaptive user experience guides learners to targeted training content based on their knowledge, goals and interests. Learners can register on AWS Educate with just an email address.

In addition, AWS will support the goal of skilling students in cloud computing and ML through the AWS DeepRacer Student League, launched today. The AWS DeepRacer Student League is aimed at introducing ML to students in higher education, and inspiring them to explore the technology. The competition provides participants an interesting and fun way to learn ML, and experiment with it by building autonomous driving applications. This is the second AWS DeepRacer initiative focused on students in India after the AWS DeepRacer Women’s League in 2021, and is being held with support from the Ministry of Education, AICTE, and Intel. The competition is open to students above 18 years who are currently enrolled in higher educational institutions in India.

Earlier this year, the research report “Building Digital Skills for the Changing Workforce” – prepared by strategy and economics consulting firm AlphaBeta, and commissioned by AWS – noted that four of the top six most in-demand skills in India by 2025 will be cloud-related. The report found that the ability to use cloud-based tools will be the most in-demand skill required by employers in India by 2025, followed by technical support skills, cybersecurity skills, advanced digital marketing, artificial intelligence (AI) and ML, and cloud architecture design. The importance and impact of the cloud-related skills are further underscored by their wide use across industry sectors, as employers surveyed in the research expect these skills to be in high demand in sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, fintech, media, and entertainment.
