Message from Director, NIDEM
Shri C Ravindra, Director, NIDEM
The National Institute of Defence Estates Management is a central training institute involved in the training of officers of the Indian Defence Estates Service. IDES Officers report to NIDEM after completion of the foundation course at LBSNAA and other institutes. The induction training as well as end-of-probation training programmes for officer trainees are held at NIDEM every year.
Apart from holding professional courses for IDES officers, NIDEM is also involved in conducting courses on land management for various other organisations and services. We are accordingly training officers of the three-armed forces, along with the DRDO and other wings of the Ministry of Defence on the issues of land management. The endeavour has always been to conduct training programmes on an interactive model wherein land issues are discussed and plausible solutions are arrived at. These courses have therefore become very sought after by officers involved in land management among the services.
Customized training programmes are also being run for organisations outside the Ministry of Defence like Prasar Bharati, DoorDarshan, All India Radio, and DDA. These organisations have started sending their officers to NIDEM for training on land management, land acquisition, the PPE Act, and other issues. Having moved into a new campus next to the Raksha Sampada Bhawan, we are on a thrust to achieve greater heights as a training institute
NIDEM is the only institute of its kind in the country that trains Government Officials, Officers of the Armed Forces, and others on land-associated matters. We will always endeavor to carry this legacy forward by organizing effective training programs in the future.
