National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG), Mussoorie was originally set up by Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA) in 1995 as National Institute of Administrative Research (NIAR) which was later renamed with expanded mandate as National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG) in 2014.
The Bangladeshi civil servants are being trained at the National Centre for Good Governance, Mussoorie based on the MoU signed in February this year in the Fifth meeting of the India-Bangladesh Joint Consultative Commission (JCC). According to the MoU 1800 Bangladesh civil servants would be provided mid-career training at Mussoorie between 2019-2025.
Welcoming the participants to the training programme acting High Commissioner of India in Bangladesh Bishwadip Dey said that such trainings provide an opportunity to share experiences of administration between civil servants of the two countries. He said that the thrust of civil services has now moved towards development activities rather than administration. He expressed the hope that civil servants of India and Bangladesh knowing each other would help foster deeper ties between the two countries.
