Message from Director, NIDEM
Shri C Ravindra, Director, NIDEM
National Institute of Defence Estates Management is a Central Training Institute involved in training of officers of Indian Defence Estates Service. IDES Officers report to NIDEM after complication of the foundation course at LBSNAA and other institutes. The Induction Training as well as End of Probation training programmes of Officer Trainees are held at NIDEM every year.
Apart from holding professional courses for IDES Officers, NIDEM also is 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 DRDO and other wings of 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 Ministry of Defence like Prasar Bharati, Doordarshan, All India Radio and DDA. These organisations have started sending their officers for training on Land Management, Land Acquisition, PPE Act and other issues to NIDEM. Having moved into new campus next to the Raksha Sampada Bhawan, we are giving a thrust to achieve greater heights as a training institute.
NIDEM is perhaps the only institute of its kind in the entire country which trains Government Officers, Officers of Armed Forces and others on land related matters and we will always strive to take this legacy forward by organising effective training programmes in the future.
