Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Tuesday said the imperative need for shift from "rule" to "role" in governance is essential to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi's goal of new India.
He said "Mission Karmayogi", launched by Prime Minister Modi, had institutionalised the process of capacity building, particularly for the benefit of civil servants, with the aim to shape the century 'India of 2047'.
Addressing the iGOT Karmashala 2023, a consultative workshop, Singh said the imperative need for shift from "rule" to "role" in governance is essential to meet Prime Minister Modi's goal of new India and live up to its aspirations.
"The whole concept has sought to give new culture to governance," he added. The minister said Mission Karmayogi is committed to Prime Minister Modi's vision for a reformed civil service that would pave the way for a "Viksit Bharat (developed India)".
"Mission Karmayogi has been playing a transformative role in shaping an administration that is agile, responsive, effective, and better equipped to serve the needs of the people," said Singh, the Minister of State for Personnel.
Designed as a comprehensive programme that seeks to enable civil servants to acquire the skills, knowledge, and abilities necessary for delivering high-quality public service in a rapidly evolving world, Mission Karmayogi has, over the last few years, made major strides under the expert stewardship of the capacity building commission (CBC), he was quoted as having said in a statement issued by the Personnel Ministry.
Radha Chauhan, Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said the mindset towards training and capacity building has changed ever since Mission Karmayogi was introduced.
"The moment we had a clear vision set forward by the political leadership, the desire to deliver was enabled within the civil servants," she said.
