Odisha Secretariat Training Institute, Bhubaneswar


The Odisha Secretariat Training Institute (OSTI) was constituted in the year 1960 to impart training to erstwhile Junior Assistants of different Government Departments of the Secretariat. After introduction of IT and ITES in the transaction of Government business, the Secretariat Administration witnessed some structural changes which necessitated improvement in the quality of training of OSS cadre officers. 

1. Accordingly, a new revised scheme for training for OSS officers has been formulated by the Home Department vide their Resolution No 21647, dated 30.05.2019. As per new training policy, OSTI would now impart training under following three categories:-  

  • Induction Training for directly recruited ASOs and Junior DEOs including those selected through induction; 
  • Refresher Training   for ASOs/ DOs, and 
  • Orientation Training on particular topics to be decided by the Home Department from time to time.

2. Since its reconstitution (i.e from 04.02.2017), the Institute has already imparted induction training to 1076 number of ASOs in 13 batches and 34 Jr. DEOs in one batch.
