Union Minister Suresh Prabhu and Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani will visit Vadodara on Wednesday to ink an MoU between the Railways and the state government, officials said.
This will be Rupani’s first visit to the city after taking charge as the Chief Minister.
As part of the MoU, city-based National Academy of Indian Railways (NAIR) has arranged new educational modules along with the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda (MSU).
“The faculty of management studies of MSU will regulate the 104-week training and confer the MBA degree which is now must for railway officers,” the University’s Vice Chancellor Parimal Vyas said.
“We have designed the MBA course after receiving the request from NAIR and the Railway Ministry,” he added.
“New recruits of three Group A Services – Indian Railway Stores Service, Personnel Service and Accounts Service, will be the first batch to follow the new curriculum which will start later this year when new batch of Railway officers join,” said Pradeep Sinh Jadeja, dean of the faculty of management studies.
