In a move that aims at transforming the face of civil services, the union Cabinet approved ‘Mission Karmayogi’ scheme on Wednesday.
A national level skill building programme, ‘Mission Karmayogi’ is aimed at changing the face of government servants across the country. The aim is to form a ‘roles-based system’ instead of a ‘rule-based’ practices.
“This is the biggest Human Resources Development reform in the government. It will help the officers to lean about the best practices across the world,” union minister Prakash Javadekar said at a press briefing outlining Cabinet’s decisions.
For ‘Mission Karmayogi’, at the helm will be an HR council, chaired by the Prime Minister, and consisting of select union ministers and Chief Ministers. The panel will also have eminent thought leaders including academics and global leaders besides civil services leadership.
“This scheme is based on the government’s vision on how a civil servant should be. A civil servant of today, in order to meet the challenges of the world, will have to be imaginative and innovative, proactive and polite, professional and progressive, energetic and enabling, transparent and tech enabled, and constructive and creative,” C Chandramouli, Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.
The objective is simple. The National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building (NPCSCB) will reincarnate a government servant into an ideal ‘Karmayogi’ to serve the nation, by enabling them to be creative, constructive, proactive and technically empowered.
“At present, there is diverse and fragmented training landscape. There are inconsistencies in training priorities by various training institutions in various ministries; this has prevented shared understanding of India’s developmental aspirations,” C Chandramouli explained.
