Govt streamlines lateral entry appointments to induct best talent for particular task

New Delhi, March 22 : The Narendra Modi led-government at the Centre has streamlined the lateral entry appointments to induct best-of-the-best talent for a particular task, coupled with expertise, on Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology, Jitendra Singh, said on Tuesday. Singh interacted with 30 lateral entrants into the Central Government at the level of Joint Secretary, Director and Deputy Secretary during their 15-day induction programme at the Indian Institute of Public Administration, New Delhi, the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions said here in a statement. He said the ultimate goal of the lateral entry mechanism was to select the best from a wider pool of choice as various flagship schemes started by Prime Minister Narendra Modi require new skill sets and expertise. Singh, who is also the Chairman of IIPA Executive Council, suggested the inductees that accountability, transparency and citizen-centric approach should be the hallmark of their stint with the Government.
