R.K. Mathur, Lieutenant Governor interacted with the fresh batch of 2019 Kashmir Administrative Service Probationers from Ladakh on May 13 at Raj Niwas.
Addressing the KAS Probationers, R K Mathur said that they are public servants and their focus should be the overall welfare of the public. He said, “You should be thinking bureaucrat, with one master namely the public of Ladakh.”
He emphasized on having a thorough knowledge of their subjects, learn from experiences and develop abilities to deliver results in any given situation.
R K Mathur advised them to adhere to the bureaucratic discipline and to excel in their career based on their abilities. He exhorted them to be innovative in their thinking and to make decisions based on the merits of the situation. He said that Ladakh has a civilization to be proud of, with a disciplined population and the onus is on the young officer to give the correct direction for this civilization to evolve further. He wished them good luck and good health in their public service in Ladakh at such a crucial period.
The delegation of 10 young KAS probationers requested the Lt. Governor to allow them to work both in the Secretariat and field with different departments on a rotational basis for exposure and experiences.
