Vedhik IAS Academy forays into Mysuru

2 min read

Mysuru: The off-campus centre of Vedhik IAS academy was inaugurated on T Narsipur road in the city on Sunday.

Former DGP Shankar Bidari, former minister and chief secretary of Karnataka Dr Alexander J and Lokayukta Mysuru SP P V Sneha were prominent among the dignitaries who took part in the inaugural session. 

Alexander remembered the time he spent in Mysuru working as registrar of University of Mysore 53 years ago.

He lamented on how reading has degenerated into downloading, writing to texting and debating with chatting and said that “reading can never be replaced by downloading since one does not just read a news paper, for instance, it is studied and the pieces of information that we get there cannot be acquired by any other means”.

Further, he said that students should not waste their opportunity to stand up and face the audience since it builds confidence, especially for those aspiring to get into civil service.

Later, in the inaugural speech, Shankar Bidari spoke about the lack of adequate representation of people from Karnataka in government services, especially in the state run banks and in civil service.

He said that local representation is important for administration and to prevent people from being put through hardships.

The former DGP also spoke about the experience, in operating his own account in Bengaluru with State Bank of India that has become a struggle since most of the staff there are from UP and Bihar and conversing with them is difficult.

He said that representation to locals is vital for administration, and pointed out that recruitment of group ‘B’ and ‘C’ officials through staff selection should be done from the area of their nativity.

Bidari also pointed out that the representation of Karnataka in civil services is only two per cent despite having a large land area and population and said that this should be at least 20 per cent.

“Representation in civil services and in other staff selections is crucial since ours is a diverse country and for its unity, diversity has to prosper, diversity is the strength of the country, not unity,” he said.
