During Bharat Darshan, small groups of IAS probationers, as a part of their training in LBSNAA, involve themselves in various organizations and establishments of central and state government as well as civil society organizations (NGO). They also get a chance to visit rural areas to receive a systematic exposure to the work being done by the civil society organizations.

A group of IAS probationers will come on a three-day visit to KISS in the current year to learn how this largest free residential institution in the world for tribals functions in a systematic manner. They will also get a chance to receive first-hand knowledge about KISS, which s taking care of more than 25000 tribal children in one campus. One nodal officer has been selected to coordinate this programme.
