Rashtrapati Bhavan : 24.04.2015

A group of probationers of Indian Ordnance Factories Service (IOFS) of 2014 (I) batch called on the President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee today (April 24, 2015) at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Addressing the probationers, the President said that the Government service is still one of the most rewarding and satisfying experience for the people. The scope and breadth of exposure and responsibility that a career in Government offers, and that too at a relatively young age, is an experience and opportunity unlike any other.

The President told the IOFS probationers that theirs was a stellar role in the defence of the country. The officers should always update themselves with new technology. Technological up-gradation is extremely important because for every failed weapon or ammunition, there is the life of soldier at stake who is performing his call of duty. Therefore, it is not only about producing arms & ammunition but about giving quality products.

The probationers are presently undertaking training at National Academy of Defence Production, Nagpur and in Delhi to undergo training on Parliamentary Procedures and Practices at BPST, Lok Sabha Secretariat.
