Dr Jitendra addresses ‘Mission Karmayogi’ workshop commemorating Good Governance Week


NEW DELHI: Union Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh on Thursday said that the aim of “Mission Karmayogi” is to impart futuristic vision to civil services which could effectively determine the roadmap for next 25 years and shape the Century India of 2047. Addressing the Mission Karmayogi Workshop – The Path Ahead, commemorating Good Governance Week, Dr Jitendra Singh said, the imperative need of shift from “rule” to “role” in governance is essential to meet PM Narendra Modi’s goal of New India and live up to its aspirations.
The Minister said, the era of generalists is over and this is far more relevant to Administration as we are entering the age of super-specialisation.
He said, a civil service ‘fit-for-purpose’ and ‘fit-for-future’ requires a competency driven capacity building approach that focuses on imparting competencies critical to discharge its roles and that is exactly the main goal of Mission Karmayogi.
Dwelling on the theme of Integration, Dr Jitendra said that Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA) has established a Mission-Karmayogi Resource Cell at IIPA and is working in close coordination with National Capacity Building Commission, LBSNAA and other central training institutions (CTIs).
Referring to Prime Minister’s exhortation to the Civil Servants to be creative and constructive, Dr Jitendra said, to achieve his vision, it is imperative that the civil servants across the country have the right set of attitudes, skills and knowledge. He said, keeping this in mind, the Government has undertaken several initiatives including the launch of the National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building (NPCSCB).
