QUETTA: The Balochistan government has decided to provide District Management Group (DMG) training to new officers of the civil service. Officers will get special training from the Pakistan Army for the first time in history.
According to sources in the Services and General Administration Department (S&GAD), 39 officers, including six women, who recently cleared the Public Service Commission exam, were under training at the Civil Service Academy, Peshawar where duration of the course had been increased on the S&GAD’s recommendation.
“Request by the Balochistan government for special DMG training for the assistant commissioners has been accepted by the GHQ,” said sources. The 39 assistant commissioners will receive training from southern command from April 30 to May 14.
During the course of training, assistant commissioners will serve in different units of the army while wearing the captain’s uniform.
The course will not only bring awareness to the officers about the army’s usual activities but will also strengthen the relationship between the civil service officers and the Pakistan Army.
