GOVERNMENT OF ANDHRA PRADESH
Commissionerate of Rural
Sub: CRD – Prioritized technical trainings to
Field functionaries on NREGS-AP –
................... Follow up action –
Guidelines issued – Reg.
per the Circular instructions issued by this Office, the Project Directors DWMA
were requested to identify technically qualified Resource Persons (MDT/DRP) to
undergo Training of Trainers (ToT) programme at AMR-APARD.
AMR-APARD with assistance from the PMU-APARLP have designed the ToT module and
facilitated the Training of Trainers in 5 Batches from 3rd to 9th
list of participants who attended the ToT programme from your district is
attached. As can be seen, the PDs DWMA do not seem to have devoted enough time
to ensure that technically qualified MDT / DRPs are nominated for the ToT. In
most of the districts, there is a predominance of Engineers while few Resource
Persons from Agriculture/Horticulture were nominated, Most of the districts
failed to nominate any Resource person under Forest/Plantation Sector.
Further, in spite of clear instructions, the Project Directors DWMA nominated
non-Technical persons like CLRC/DLRC Coordinators and Resource Persons.
thorough analysis of the composition of teams from each district is undertaken
and based on that it is felt necessary to give detailed guidelines for
operationalisation of the training programmes at district/DLRC & CLRC
soon as the Resource Persons reported back in the districts, the PD DWMA
shall hold a detailed review with them on operationalisation of the
training programmes in the district.
Project Director DWMA shall call for a meeting of all MPDOs and Addl. Pos
at district level and brief them about the training strategy and their
responsibility to mobilize the field functionaries for training as per the
non-technical Resource Persons who attended ToT should be asked to
undertake the following activities:
profiles of all Technical Assistants, Field Assistants & Mates (if
selection is completed) on Computer system.
this data base, they should work out the no. of batches to be organized,
the details of functionaries who have to attend training at each
location. Old FA/TA should be grouped separate from freshly recruited
FA/TA. Further, TAs with Engineering background and those with other
background should be grouped separately.
- Prepare budget for
conducting all the trainings.
- Approval of the budget by PD
- Issue of proceedings and
fund release to the DLRC/CLRC
Persons shall be at district Headquarters for 2 to 3 days to prepare and
complete this assignment so that the training plan, proceedings and funds are
released to the training centers.
technical DRPs should be asked to visit one Gram Panchayat and one Mandal
to physically spend one day time with Mate / Field Assistant / Technical
Assistant and study the following:
- The Job chart of the above
- Actual work that is being
carried out by them
gaps in the performance of these functionaries.
The Resource Persons must look at
the way the field functionary delivers the services by verifying the
records/registers being maintained by them, interacting with the labour and
personally observing functioning of the Mate/FA/TA in the field.
- Assess training needs based
on the above field visit and interaction.
back to district and design the training programme/sessions to address
the gaps identified in the field.
Technical Resource Persons must first of all identify top 10 types of
works being implemented in the district (can be downloaded from the
the field visit, each Resource Person must make field visit on his/her
own and not in teams. While in the field, they must focus on major types
of works identified earlier and focus on the performance of Mate/FA/TA
from the point of view of their ability to implement these types of
of the sessions should be skill oriented. For this purpose, the Resource
Persons should not indulge in lecturing. In each session, they can spend
15 Min. to introduce the topic and then make the participants practice
the items where they were found committing mistakes in the field.
Necessary extracts of muster rolls, measurement sheet, any other record
etc., should be brought, copied and given to each participant to identify
the mistakes committed and carry out corrections. Thus each session
should be taken as a case study and the participants should practice the
issues coming out of the case study.
the PD DWMA should identify Resource Persons for
Agriculture/Horticulture/Forestry from among the MDT/WDT and furnish the
list to the Special Officer and to the O/o. CRD. Only after confirmation
of composition of the teams from the CRD, the PDs will be permitted to
start the training programmes. Therefore, they should send the required
list to the Special Officer/CRD immediately.
is found that in some districts, the Project Directors have nominated
Resource Persons who are not familiar with the working of NREGS-AP or any
programme of the DWMA. Further, these Resource Persons do not have any
contract or clear understanding about the remuneration and facilities offered
to them. The PDs DWMA are directed to note that the above issues should
be clarified to the Resource Persons well in advance, so that they can
concentrate on the assignment given to them.
Resource Persons with technical background, trained at APARD shall be
available full time until the entire training programme in the district is
completed. They shall not be disturbed for any other work. Necessary
orders shall be issued, in written, to these Resource Persons.
Arrangements should be made for taking care of their regular duty by some one
Course Directors CLRC/DLRC shall be made responsible to organize the
trainings in the most conducive “teaching learning environment”.
Necessary equipment, material, residential facilities, catering etc.,
shall be arranged at each of the identified training location. The
Resource Persons and the CLRC/DLRC Coordinators shall stay at the training
center along with participants during the entire period of the training
The PDs DWMA are requested once again to scrupulously
follow the above guidelines to operationalise the prioritized training
programmes to the MPDOs / APOs / TAs / FAs and Mates as per the schedule
prepared for the district and ensure that all the trainings are completed by
end of November, 2007.
