New Delhi, Mar 16: Senior babus will now be able to learn stress management techniques with the Centre deciding to hold a two-day workshop for them.
The workshop, scheduled to begin from March 28, is being organised for officers working in Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) and the Cabinet Secretariat here.
Officers of the level of Deputy Secretaries, Director and above can register for the stress management programme to be conducted by the Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhan Sansthan at the Civil Services Officers' Institute (CSOI), here, a press release issued by the DoPT said.
The DoPT deals with works related to personnel matters of central government employees and anti-corruption initiatives like Lokpal and others while Cabinet Secretariat provides secretarial assistance to cabinet and cabinet committees.
"This is being started as a pilot project. Later, the programme will be extended to officers working in other ministries too," a DoPT official said.
The central government has been emphasising on popularising use of traditional medicine and yoga among others.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had in November last year elevated Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy (AYUSH) as independent ministry.
Earlier, the Department was under the ambit of the Health Ministry.
