The Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA) is a research and training institute on public policy and public administration in India. Operated by India's federal Union Government, LBSNAA is located in the remote town of Mussoorie, Uttarakhand in the foothills of the Himalayas. The academy's main purpose is to train civil service officers of the Indian Administrative Service, Indian Police Service, Indian Foreign Service, Indian Forest Service, Indian Revenue Service, Indian Audits and Accounts Service and other government agencies undergo training at LBSNAA. LBSNAA was established in the Charleville the property, acquired by the Indian government in 1959. The Happy Valley Club area was also soon acquired to house the sports complex for the institution. The academy was initially named the National Academy of Administration. The academy was renamed in honor of Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri shortly after his death.
