Intensive Training Programme (ITP)

Intensive training programme for frontline functionaries of State/UT Governments was initiated during the year 2008-09 on the advice of the erstwhile Planning Commission to replicate the robust models of training of frontline functionaries developed through externally aided projects during the X Plan Period. The focus of this programme is on demand-driven training of frontline personnel and is conducted in close coordination with line Departments by the ATIs. The Programme is undertaken to provide saturation training of frontline personnel manning the public service delivery chain, in sectors identified by States, in specific geographical area of a State. This programme aims to impact upon functional knowledge, skills and attitudinal orientation of the frontline functionaries through appropriately designed training interventions to make public service delivery effective.
