Speaking to reporters here on October 1, Monday, Palemar said  the one year Diploma Program in Hostel Management including internship will have compulsory as well as optional subjects wherein candidates will be trained in management of hostels for boys and girls at post graduate, undergraduate and primary school levels.

While planning to offer this course, Vikas Group has kept in mind the fact that those appointed as wardens in hostels have until now never undergone any  training in hostel management as well as the ways to deal with students who are away from their homes and face teenage issues including depression, fear of failures etc, Palemar said.

"The move has also come in the backdrop of an alarming trend in the number of suicides among youngsters and the problem of drug abuse, social media addiction as well as an addiction of viewing sexually explicit contents online," he informed.

 Palemar said that the Vikas Group recommends the government to create unique IDs for wardens in order to facilitate job openings and transfers and also to create a warden database of the state/country.  The Vikas Group also plans to hold regular orientation camps to improve the overall efficiency of wardens and will host Conclave of wardens at state and national level, he added.

"Vikas Group   appeals to the State Governor Honorable Vaju Bhai Vala, Chief Minister  Sri H.D. Kumaraswamy as well as the Education Minister to take the initiative in introducing such  Diploma Program in  every district of the state.  Vikas  also plans to offer  training to the trainers to conduct this Diploma programme in other parts of the state and country," Palemar informed.
