Railways to organise lessons in ethics and integrity for officers


The class, which will be telecast live across all zones, will teach employees the basics of ethical behaviour in governance. 

The Railways will commence nationwide classes for their officers on ethics and integrity, while dealing with situations in public service.

The first such class would be held at the Rail Museum on July 27, for 150 officers and supervisors each from the 17 zones of the Railways.

Ashwani Lohani, chairman, Railway Board will be the keynote speaker. The class will be telecast live across all the zones.

The classes on ethics and integrity are aimed to bring about a change in the attitude of officials and cover each staff member. Through these classes, the employees will be told how to deal with ethical dilemmas in life through insightful real-life stories. Employees will be taken through leadership styles and taught to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ instead of ‘maybe’, while dealing with governance issues.

Among the invited speakers are former cabinet secretary, Prabhat Kumar, former education secretary, Anil Swarup and former member (traffic) Railway Board, Shanti Narayan. In fact, a schedule will be drawn up to organise these classes in every zone and to include as many officials as possible.
