Department of Power, Engineer-in-chief, G. Chishi yesterday released the first edition of the Lineman Training Center (LMTC) training manual at Electrical colony Dimapur.
Speaking on the occasion, Engineer-in-chief said that over the years LMTC was deteriorating due to lack of funds and assured that efforts will be made to change the scenario. Chishi urged all officers to have a positive attitude and contribute in a constructive manner for the department and in public service. Stating that all fresh recruits shall now be trained which shall be a departmental policy, Engineer-in-chief said that work-charge staff shall not be regularized unless they possess the LMTC certificate.
Chishi also instructed all working divisions to make some resource contribution towards LMTC development to create awareness within the department on the importance of training. Head of LMTC, Senior Engineer (Electrical), Dimapur, Moa Aier, while highlighting the issues confronting the power sector in the state, said that unless regular training courses were conducted, the power department would not be able to deliver proper services. Aier also suggested that the LMTC be upgraded to Nagaland Power Training Institute where not only the field workers but all officers, ministerial staff and all other category of staffs could be trained.
