Union Cabinet Decisions - Jammu Kashmir Official Languages Bill, Mission Karmayogi

The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved ‘Mission Karmayogi’ – National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building to lay the foundation for capacity building for Civil Servants so they remain entrenched in Indian culture while they learn from best practices across the world.

The Cabinet stated that Mission Karmayogi aims to prepare Indian Civil Servants for the future by making them more creative, constructive, imaginative, innovative, proactive, professional, progressive, energetic, enabling, transparent, and technology-enabled.

C Chandramouli, Secretary, Department of Personnel & Training, said that “Mission Karmayogi focuses on the individual (civil servants) and institutional capacity building. At the top, there will be a PM’s HR Council which will consist of national and international experts under the chairmanship of PM.”

“Capacity Building Commission will be set up which will harmonise training standards, create shared faculty and resources and will have a supervisory role over all training institutions so that there’s a common understanding of India’s aspirations and development goals,” Chandramouli added.
