Prime Minister Narendra Modi has strongly endorsed ‘Mission Karmayogi’ which was approved by the Union cabinet on Wednesday and is tipped to be the next big disruptor.
He tweeted, “…National Program for Civil Services Capacity Building approved in today’s cabinet will radically improve the Human Resource management practices in the Government. It will use scale & state of the art infrastructure to augment the capacity of Civil Servants.”
He added that the iGOT platform will enable the transition to a “role-based HR management & continuous learning”. Mission Karmayogi, the Prime Minister said, aims to prepare civil servants for the future by making them more “creative, constructive & innovative” by using transparency and technology as key means.
Earlier, during the cabinet briefing, the government said that Mission Karmayogi will aim to prepare civil servants to be more creative, constructive, imaginative, innovative, proactive, professional, progressive, energetic, enabling, transparent as well as technology-enabled.
Through a powerpoint presentation, the government showcased its “vision” of the civil servants and end the culture of their “working in silos”. This is in sync with Prime Minister Modi’s vision of ‘New India’.
C Chandramouli, Secretary, Department of Personnel & Training, said that at the top there will be a PM’s HR Council under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister. It will also include experts.
