GLEANINGS FROM LBSNAA -By Lunminthang Haokip, Manipur

The Promotion:  March 1, 2012. A much-awaited faxed letter from Department of Personnel and Training, Government of India, New Delhi, was received in the Secretariat of Manipur State. Members of 14 families of senior MCS (Manipur Civil Service) erupted in joy and reassurance because a member each of their respective families were inducted into the coveted IAS - Indian Administrative Service - by promotion. I happened to be one of them. Having been given the spiritual IAS (I am saved) way back in 1994 by the grace of God, I did not expect much future from my obscure 21 year old tenure in MCS in the backblocks. But, if the goodness of my Creator lifted me up to a higher level, who was I to question?

The call to LBSNAA: After two batches of 6 officers in each from the 14 officers who were promoted to IAS on 1st March, 2012 were given Induction Training at LBSNAA, Mussoorie, my turn to undergo the same came through Order No. 11/7. 2000-IAS/DP(Vol.III) dated the 18th February, 2013 of the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms, Government of Manipur. The Order deputed the 2 remaining IAS Officers from the 2012 list and another 4 from the next batch to participate in the 113th Induction Training Programme for IAS Officers at Lal Bhadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, Mussoorie from 25.02.2013 to 19.04.2013. With great expectations, the six of us deputed IAS Officers of Manipur-Tripura cadre, headed for LBSNAA and formed the largest group in the 113th ITP course that housed 35 similarly inducted IAS Officers from 13 States of India for 8 weeks.
