Indian Institute of Management Calcutta has signed a ‘Statement of Intent (SOI) with Capacity Building Commission, Government of India, for knowledge partnership with the aim to improve government's human resource management practices, IIM-C said in a statement on Friday.

The Capacity Building Commission (CBC), constituted in April 2021, has the mandate to improve the government's human resource management practices and augment the capacity of India's 25 million civil servants.

As part of this initiative, the commission entered into a knowledge partnership with IIM-C to structure a comprehensive strategy of innovative management development training for civil services at multiple levels, the statement said.

The IIM-C Director said, "Our collaboration with the Capacity Building Commission is another instance of our commitment to the public good as an eminent institution of management education in the country."

Under the general framework of this SOI, IIM Calcutta will lend its expertise to the design and execution of training programmes for the country's civil servants and support them through enhanced learning competencies in their efforts of effective governance.

Prof Bhaskar Chakrabarti, Dean (Academic) congratulated the Capacity Building Commission for its efforts to broad-base on-the-job learning for the country's civil servants through knowledge partnership.

He said "Through this partnership, we at IIM Calcutta wish to support CBC in its important national endeavour of creating well-trained human resources. We look forward to working closely with CBC over the next two years to build a knowledge repository for the benefit of all civil servants."
