About 1,300 surveyors will undergo vigorous training in districts. The government has decided to depute senior moderators from the State Survey Training College at Samalkot in West Godavari district to the districts to launch the training session from August 26.
Initially, the government wanted to provide training at State Survey Training College, Samalkot. However, it was deferred and decided to depute the officials from the training college to the districts as part of the Covid-19 containment measures. The training programme was designed to give both off and on field exposure to staff in reaching targets of comprehensive survey.
Speaking to the media, survey and land settlement commissioner, Siddarth Jain, said that surveyors would also be given thorough training in handling the latest gadgets.
“Chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is of the view that surveyors should be capable of resolving all the field-level issues with the help of latest technologies and equipment. The training programme will help them switch to the new technologies and complete the survey without any delay,” said Jain.
