1. Introduction:
In the present era of globalization driven by cutting-edge technology and innovation, need for employees with extraordinary skills and who can add value to the organisation has become imperative. Human beings are naturally gifted with the potential to learn and spread to others what is learnt. Organisations aspiring to touch the zenith of excellence must leverage this inherent potential and achieve what they desire to. Learned workforce is therefore an asset to an organisation. An investigation of the most successful corporations and government agencies throughout the globe reveals that a quality workforce has made the difference between the success and the failure. 
Among almost all organisations irrespective of their nature and size there is a wide recognition that the skills of their staff need to be continually strengthened and enhanced. In the face of challenges from national and international competitors the effective organisations have been investing more resources in the continual training and re-training of employees at all levels. They focus not only on the competence of their staff, but also give time to stressing the need for commitment to the organisation’s goals and to promoting a capacity to change. Should not the same be true of our institutions of higher education? They are crucial to national aspirations for economic development and, if such capacity building aims are to be achieved, the institutions will have to make the most effective use of all their human resources. Inevitably training occupies a top spot in the HR agenda for almost all successful organisations transcending sectors, higher educational institutions like Universities cannot afford to be an exception.  
Universities in India have not so far been concerned about the induction, training and capacity development of the administrative staff. Once recruited into the job, they are expected to learn while working, which drastically reduces the optimum utilisation of their talent and potential. UGC has established Human Resources Development Centres (HRDCs) all across India, however these centres are exclusively dealing with the capacity development of the academic staff. The training centres like Institute of Secretariat Training &Management (ISTM), Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI), Administrative Training Centres (ATCs), Institute of Management of Public Admin (IMPA) etc established by the Central/State Govt. do offer training programmes but these programmes are tailored for the secretarial staff working in Central/State Govt. departments. Considering that the functions and assignments of the administrative staff of the educational institutions are different than their counterparts in the Govt. departments, these training institutions do not cover all functional requirements of the University staff. In such a scenario, establishment of an independent and dedicated Centre for induction, training and capacity development of the administrative staff in Central University of Kashmir shall be first of its kind in Indian University system. This Centre shall not only serve the CUK staff but can also extend its services to the educational institutions of the entire region.
