Research, Training and Design Wing is presently on the following major tasks:
Mandatory Training for all the Cadres
As per Training Strategy of the Punjab Government, mandatory training is required to be prescribed in the service rules of all cadres of Government servants at post induction as well as promotional levels. RTD Wing is coordinating, assisting and guiding all Departments to implement the requisite action.
Training on Wheels Programme (TOW)
MPDD is catering to the training needs of a large number of the Government employees in the Punjab. However, it is not possible for this Department to provide training to all employees of the Punjab Government at its premises at Lahore. Under the guidance of Secretary MPDD, Training on Wheels Programme (TOW) has been initiated under which training is being provided at Divisional Headquarters to officers and officials of the Division/Districts. So far, training courses have been conducted at Faisalabad, Rawalpindi and Gujranwala Divisions. As a part of the programme, this Department is also providing two days training for Capacity Building of Naib Qasids and Sweepers. At the end of the course, uniforms and cleaning kits are given to all the participants to promote the cause of cleanliness. In near future, the Department intends to conduct such training courses at Sahiwal, Sargodha, Multan, DG Khan and Bahawalpur Divisions.
Establishment of Regional Campuses
MPDD intends to establish its regional campuses at Multan and Rawalpindi so that Government servants at the far flung areas can get training at their nearest places of posting and maximum number of employees can benefit from the training courses.
Up-gradation of Training Institutions
Research, Training and Design Wing is working for the up-gradation of training institutions including Punjab Local Government Academy, Lalamusa, Government Engineering Academy, Punjab, Lahore , Water Management and Training Institute, Lahore and Road Research & Material Testing Institute, Lahore in collaboration with the Departments concerned as well as the institutions.
