The event brought together 27 Central Training Institutes (CTIs) and 34 State Administrative Training Institutes (ATIs) to explore innovative ways to integrate the PM GatiShakti principles into the training curriculum of these institutes.

The webinar comprised three insightful sessions, each shedding light on the significance and potential of the PM GatiShakti approach. The first session showcased the PM GatiShakti National Master Plan, demonstrated by BISAG-N, to unravel the approach’s comprehensive framework.

More than 250 senior officers from 27 Central Training Institutes (CTIs), and about 34 State Administrative Training Institutes (ATIs) from across the country, along with BISAG-N, CBC, and Network Planning Group Ministries, actively participated in the webinar.

During the event, Rajesh Kumar Singh, Secretary of DPIIT, emphasized the vision of a ‘whole of government’ approach embodied in the PM GatiShakti National Master Plan.
