New Delhi: The Army has drawn up a fresh plan to reorganise all its training courses, a number of which have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak, ThePrint has learnt. The service conducts close to 600 courses for its personnel over a training year that begins on 1 July and ends on 30 June the following year.
While the bulk of the courses are in progress and will conclude in the latter half of the current training year, about 90 courses have been shifted to the next one, according to the fresh plan.
An Army source told ThePrint that the courses, which have been shifted to the next training year, may be conducted either as additional courses or fit into vacant slots that may be created to cater to the backlog.
“The decision on this would be taken in June when the new training calendar for 2020-2021 is being finalised,” the source said.
