The fi­nal of first-ever In­ter Thromde Co­or­di­na­tion Cup will be played to­day in Phuentshol­ing.

The tour­na­ment which be­gan on Oc­to­ber 31 for the first time saw two teams – young and vet­eran - from each of the four Thromdes. Two matches are played daily and two matches will be played in the fi­nal to­day.

Ini­tially con­ceived by Phuentshol­ing Thromde, the tour­na­ment is aimed to bring bet­ter co­or­di­na­tion amongst dif­fer­ent Thromdes in pro­vid­ing ef­fi­cient pub­lic ser­vice de­liv­ery to the peo­ple. The tour­na­ment is also ex­pected to unite the staffs of dif­fer­ent Thromdes, while also ren­der­ing a plat­form to share their ex­pe­ri­ences and ideas amongst them in­for­mally.

Phuentshol­ing Thrompon Ut­tar Ku­mar Rai said the co­or­di­na­tion cup has at­tracted in­ter­ested staffs from within the Thromde, in­clud­ing school teach­ers.

Mean­while, the Thromdes have also signed a Me­moran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing, agree­ing to host the tour­na­ment an­nu­ally. The tour­na­ment hence would be an an­nual one which each Thromde tak­ing turn to host the com­pe­ti­tion. Gele­phu Thromde will or­ga­nize the tour­na­ment next year, fol­lowed by Sam­drup Jongkhar and then Thim­phu Thromde.

The en­tire ex­penses for the tour­na­ment will be borne by the host Thromde and the par­tic­i­pat­ing teams don’t have to pay en­try fees.

As the Thromdes share sim­i­lar prob­lems, the co­or­di­na­tion cup, ac­cord­ing to the Phuentshol­ing Thrompon, will bring the staffs close and help dis­cuss is­sues and find so­lu­tions.

“It has mul­ti­ple ad­van­tages as the tour­na­ment will bind the staffs and keep them phys­i­cally fit, de­spite the heavy work pres­sures that the em­ploy­ees face,” he said.

“The tour­na­ment is also ex­pected to in­tro­duce staffs of dif­fer­ent de­part­ments as some still don’t know each other. It is also aimed to groom the young staffs through in­te­gra­tion and share ex­pe­ri­ences which will ben­e­fit the staffs,” Ut­tar Ku­mar Rai said, adding that peo­ple are happy to take part in the tour­na­ment.

Sim­i­larly, Gele­phu Thrompon Tika Ram Kafley said the tour­na­ment is a good plat­form where the staffs of dif­fer­ent Thromdes have op­por­tu­ni­ties to share their is­sues and ideas to grow mu­tu­ally.

“It’s a great ini­tia­tive and a lot of pos­i­tiv­ity is ex­pected to come out of it,” he added.

Apart from phys­i­cal fit­ness, Thim­phu Thrompon Kin­lay Dor­jee said such tour­na­ment among Thromdes will help the staffs so­cial­ize which will help in im­prov­ing re­sults. “It pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­gage and learn from each other,” he added.

Mean­while, Thromdes’ driv­ers, tech­ni­cians, en­gi­neers, plan­ners and ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cers, in­clud­ing the Thrompons are tak­ing part in the tour­na­ment.
