IEG organises short term orientation and refresher courses on request from the government or other institutions.These are usually subject-specific, such as courses in industrial or agricultural policy, environment and development, and so on. In recent years, such course participants have included Senior Officers of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), probationers of the Indian Audit and Accounts Service as well as the Indian Statistical Service, and researchers and teachers of Environmental Economics from research institutions and universities .
