New Delhi, May 25: Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Dr Jitendra Singh, who is also the National Chairman of the Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA), inaugurated the 101st branch of Kendriya Bhandar in the IIPA premises and chaired the 322nd meeting of the National Executive Council of IIPA
The minister, in his capacity as National Chairman of IIPA, also approved 181 new members of IIPA including 56 Professors, Associate Professors and Assistant Professors.
Presiding over the 322nd meeting of the Executive Council of IIPA, Dr Jitendra Singh informed that he decided in November 2021 to throw open the IIPA membership to the serving officers, which was earlier reserved for only retired officers, over 700 members were enrolled so far.
The minister expressed happiness that apart from a wide range of ages, the fresh membership is also coming from Allied and Defence Services and Academic and Professional fields. He urged the regional branches of IIPA to speed up the membership drive to bring quality manpower to the IIPA fraternity. 
Earlier, Dr Jitendra Singh inaugurated the 101 branches of Kendriya Bhandar in the IIPA premises with a variety of ready-to-eat food items and a “Karmayogi Dwar”. He said, “Kendriya Bhandar which was running in losses in 2014 and a paper was also initiated for its closure was given a complete facelift by the Modi Government.” 
He informed that from a turnover of merely Rs 750 crore in the Cooperative has registered 500 percent growth and now doing business worth Rs 4000 crore. 
Dr Singh urged the members of the executive council to explore the idea that each State Branch must come up with a calendar of activities as the mandate of the IIPA is mainly Academic. He also expressed satisfaction that the institute will soon release “A manual of Good Governance” for the officers working in the fields facing day-to-day public delivery challenges. He termed this will be a completely New Paradigm of Good Governance. 
The minister was apprised of the action taken on the minutes of the 321st Meeting of the EC held on 12th October 2022. The IIPA’s Executive Council has the Vice President of India, Jagdeep Dhankhar as its President and Union Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh, as Chairman.
