In view of the Lockdown and the threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Madhya Pradesh State Judicial Academy has decided to conduct the training programme of 155 newly appointed Civil Judges (Entry Level), through online video lectures.
The first phase of training for these officers was scheduled from March 24 onwards. However, the same was delayed due to the outbreak of Corona virus. The decision to go online has now been taken in the backdrop of this delay, which will in turn cause unnecessary burden on said exchequer.
For now, the programme has been scheduled for only 4 weeks, of the 12 months training period stipulated by the NJAC.
The Academy has prepared a "Pro-tem Scheme" for online training of judges, as approved by Chief Justice AK Mittal, and it will offer online video lectures and interaction with other modes of telecommunication between May 11 and June 12, 2020.
The scheme is applicable only for the Civil Judges Class II (Entry Level) appointed in 2019-2020 (2020 Batch).
The duration of First Phase Institutional Training will be four weeks however, conduction of the course will start initially for two weeks and thereafter, if contingency subsists, the same mode will be continued for full duration of four weeks.
The contents and topics of the online training will be same as prescribed under the 'Principal Scheme' for Induction Training of Civil Judges.
Online delivery of lectures, online exhibition of written material and practical exercises will be the method of imparting training under the Pro-tem scheme.
The MPSJA will also undertake an Impact Assessment of this entire exercise to assess special attention or further training of the concerned participants.
