'Mission Karmayogi' is a national programme for civil service capacity building.
The National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building (NPCSCB) -- Mission Karmayogi -- was launched last year with the objective of enhancing governance through civil service capacity building.
The project would have six pillars -- policy framework, institutional framework, competency framework, digital learning framework (Integrated Government Online Training Karmayogi Platform [iGOT-Karmayogi]), electronic human resource management system, and monitoring and evaluation framework.
The programme would provide strategic direction to civil service reforms and capacity building, preparation of annual capacity building plans, and strengthen functional supervision over training institutions, among other objectives.
