New Delhi, Oct 5: 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' is one of the popular TV reality shows in which celebrities are seen taking part in different adventurous sports.
Now, central government employees of the country have been asked to take part in similar kind of adventurous sports. However, it would not be a TV reality show.
The central government reportedly asked its employees to go for rafting, jungle safaris and many more sports, so that the experience would help them to increase and enhance their risk-taking capacities.
The government is concerned about the health issues of its employees and the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) feels that adventure sports will cull the impact of stress and sedentary life on government servants.
DoPT released a memorandum which states, "Healthy employees are happy employees. A positive and energetic work force collaborates better and is more appealing to customers, which means investing in gym will improve the functioning and image of an organisation."
Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports, Manali, Himachal Pradesh, Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering, Gulmarg, Jammu and Kashmir, National Institute of Water Sports, Vasco da Gama, Goa and Nehru Institute of Mountaineering, Uttarkashi, Uttarakhand are among those institutions which have already received approval from the government.
