Dr Sub­hash Bhamre in­au­gu­rates new build­ing Of NIDEM


Min­is­ter of State for De­fence Dr Sub­hash Bhamre re­cently in­au­gu­rated the new build­ing of Na­tional In­sti­tute of De­fence Es­tates Man­age­ment (NIDEM) in Delhi. The train­ing in­sti­tute of In­dian De­fence Es­tates Ser­vice (IDES) has come a long way since its hum­ble be­gin­ning at Meerut in 1982. Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion Dr Bhamre said the day marks ful­fil­ment of a dream of hav­ing a full-fledged set-up for im­part­ing train­ing to the new re­cruits as well as up­dat­ing the in-ser­vice of­fi­cers in mod­ern tech­nolo­gies in man­age­ment of valu­able de­fence land and ad­min­is­tra­tion of Can­ton­ments.

He said the IDES Cadre is crit­i­cal in over­all scheme of man­age­ment of De­fence Land. Proper Cadre man­age­ment keeps the of­fi­cers mo­ti­vated to scale new heights and proper train­ing gives the of­fi­cers and staff,all the re­quired skills to dis­charge their du­tiesef­fi­ciently, ef­fec­tively and eth­i­cally. Dr Bhamre lauded the ef­forts of NIDEM in im­part­ing train­ing to in-Ser­vice of­fi­cers of the de­fence forces and it will now be con­ve­nient to or­gan­ise train­ing­pro­grams for the of­fi­cers of the Ser­vices more fre­quently.

Shar­ing his ex­pe­ri­ence of the last 21 months, Dr Bhamre said, “The or­gan­i­sa­tion has done well in the ambitious projects of sur­vey of en­tire De­fence Land and digi­ti­sa­tion of valu­able land records through lat­est tech­niques. I ex­tend my com­pli­ments to DGDE and his team.” He ad­vised that is­sues like re­newals of leases, mu­ta­tion of prop­er­ties in Can­ton­ments and pro­cess­ing of ac­qui­si­tion pro­pos­als should be­worked out within pre­scribed time lim­its.

The in­sti­tute started in 1982 from a small ac­com­mo­da­tion shared by Na­tional In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment & Ac­counts (NIMA) – a train­ing in­sti­tute of IDAS (In­dian De­fence Ac­counts Ser­vice) of­fi­cers. It was shifted to Delhi in 1995. It was ini­tially lo­cated in the of­fice of De­fence Es­tates Of­fi­cer, Delhi Cir­cle, there­after in the premises of Rak­sha Sam­pada Bhawan. In both th­ese places, the train­ing in­fras­truc­ture was in­ad­e­quate. The In­sti­tute ba­si­cally trains the of­fi­cers of De­fence Es­tates Or­ga­ni­za­tion in civic ad­min­is­tra­tion and land trans­fer mat­ters. With the rapid changes in the field of ur­ban­i­sa­tion and e-gov­er­nance, NIDEM has de­vel­oped ex­per­tise in train­ing of­fi­cers in the fields of solid waste man­age­ment, RTI, Pub­lic Pri­vate Part­ner­ship, de­vel­op­men­tal plan­ning, pub­lic health, the gen­der is­sues etc. Be­sides train­ing the of­fi­cers and staff of De­fence Es­tates Or­ga­ni­za­tion, NIDEM also trains the of­fi­cers of the wings of De­fence ser­vices on land re­lated is­sues and Can­ton­ment mat­ters.

Di­rec­tor Gen­eral De­fence Es­tates Shri Jo­j­nesh­war Sharma in­formed that there were 62 can­ton­ments in 19 States with an area cover of 1,86,730 acres. Can­ton­ment Boards are re­spon­si­ble for pro­vid­ing civic ad­min­is­tra­tion and im­ple­ment­ing the Cen­tral Govt schemes of so­cial wel­fare, pub­lic health, ed­u­ca­tion, hy­giene, safety, wa­ter sup­ply, san­i­ta­tion, ur­ban re­newal etc in the Can­ton­ment ar­eas.
