KARMAYOGI GUIDELINES 2023 in Detail:

1. Background

1.1 The Civil Services play a central role in governance and delivery of public services. Their role ranges from steering formulation of public policies to devising and operating the mechanisms that deliver on the ground to its citizens. Throughout their career, civil servants contribute to the process of public policy formulation, implementation, monitoring, and analysis. Hence, it is essential that they be equipped with the right attitudes, skills, knowledge and competencies aligned to the demands and expectations of a rapidly growing ecenemy and its increasingly aspirational citizens.

1.2. To meet the above need, Government of India launched the National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building (NPCSCB) - Mission Karmayogi with a programmatic approach with six identified pillars, viz.: A. Policy Framework: A robust policy framework and an institutional structure for its implementation in alignment with the national priorities.

B. Digital Learning Framework (iGOT Karmayogi i.e. Integrated Government Online Training Karmayogi Platform): To provide anytime-anywhere learning opportunities for all civil servants and to evolve into a vibrant and world class marketplace for content modelled on Framework for Roles, Activities, and Competencies including skills (FRACs) supported by a robust e-learning content industry.

C. Competency Framework: Each Ministry/Department/Organization (MDO) to define the FRACs and to integrate it with the iGOT Karmayogi Platform.

D. The electronic Human Resource Management System (‘e-HRMS”): To facilitate digital working environment in Central Government.

E. Monitoring and Evaluation Framework: To enable the monitoring and evaluation of the performances of all providers and users on the iGOT Karmayogi platform on Key Performance Indicators framework.

F. Institutional Framework:

a) Prime Minister’s Public Human Resource Council (PMHRC) as the apex body for driving and providing strategic direction to civil services reforms and capacity building;

b) Cabinet Secretariat Coordination Unit (CSCU) for monitoring the implementation of NPCSCB;

c) Functional Institutions, i.e. Capacity Building Commission (CBC) and Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) - Karmayogi Bharat.

1.3. The two key pillars of the Mission Karmayogi, designed to deliver on the vision of capacity building of Civil Servants have already been operationalized. The CBC was constituted on 1st April 2021 and is fully functional since June 2021. It has facilitated preparation of Annual Capacity Building Plans (ACBPs) for about 100 MDOs. The SPV- Karmayogi Bharat, which became operational in August, 2022 is operating and maintaining the iGOT Karmayogi platform. Already, the platform has around 18 lakhs individual learners registered. Currently, it hosts 624 courses of 1237 hours duration. The e-HRMS has also been revamped with real time integration with iGOT Karmayogi platform and enablement of coupling between the employees’ profiles with the feature of Al based guidance on courses and competencies suited to role and career progression.

1.4. The Mission Karmayogi with its vision of citizen centric and future ready civil service and with its approach of democratized competency-led capacity building encompasses in its scope a mandate that unifies the efforts of both structured, formal and Service-based Training through Civil Service Training Institutions (CSTIs) and digital on-demand training through iGOT Karmayogi platform.

1.5 The existing training paradigm focuses on the institution-based training to a service specific cohort (batch) in a structured Rule-based mode where training is mandated at defined intervals and is driven by organization-based thinking. Beginning with induction for a significantly longer period of time to mid-career training interventions, it is in physical mode, where team building and promotion of esprit de corps, both across and within services remains a major objective. These trainings are typically delivered through CSTIs with a strong focus on hands-on-training, developing the requisite domain knowledge, skills and attitudes in its officials.

1.6 As distinct from class room or brick and mortar training, the capacity building efforts of using e-learning resources [exclusively or partially (phygital)] through iGoT Karmayogi platform follow a more democratic approach, agnostic to hierarchies or services and aim to build strong knowledge base of employees in workplace related operations. iGOT Karmayogi platform has been conceived and built as a solution space:

a) To provide for systems that continually tap on demand for competencies identified by MDOs in their ACBPs to identify requirements of learning resources;

b) To create mechanisms for assessment of competencies possessed by individual employees; and

c) To ensure availability of quality content, in the form of online courses and modules, for filling the gap in required competencies.

The competencies can be acquired as mandated or, alternatively, according to the interest and inclination of individual employees. With online assessments, iGOT Karmayogi platform will also provide an agile system of real time assessed capacities within Government ecosystem. This can be matched wherever requirement of such competencies is raised by MDOs at any time or through their ACBPs. At the same time, the development of capacity of CSTIs to be able to serve as an important player in training of Civil Servants would continue to be guided and supported by the administrative Ministries, DoPT as well as CBC in an integrated framework.

1.7 These guidelines, inter-alia, align to two components:

a) Accreditation Framework for CSTs; and

b) Integration with competency-based systems of iGOT Karmayogi platform. They aim to drive a unified system of delivery and assessment of individual capacities for career progression as alse systemic enhancement for overall achievement of Mission Outcomes. It is envisaged that the institutional training interventions in complementarity with online capacity building interventions on {GOT Karmayogi platform would facilitate the overall objective of shift from rule-based system to a role-based Human Resource Management in Government.

1.8 The National Training approach, therefore, has to harmoniously blend and realign the role of various CSTIs so as to fully complement the efforts of other pillars of Mission Karmayogi. It is also acknowledged that there is a large pool of resources in MDOs, which is not part of any organized civil services. As the training and capacity building of these resources will directly or indirectly contribute to the performance of the organization, therefore, there is a need to include this resource pool in the fold of the Training and Capacity Building framework.

1.9 These guidelines are being framed in consultation with CBC, SPV, and after factoring in the suggestions and recommendations of MDOs, CSTIs, States and their CSTIs, shared during the National Training Conclave 2023. These guidelines shall steer the efforts of all stakeholders including the MDOs in their operation and conduct of Capacity Building, through their own CSTls or any other Institutes, for training and development of their cadres and all other employees, across all levels.

2. Karmayogi Objectives

2.1 In line with the broader vision for the Civil Services, the aim of these guidelines is to align efforts of all stakeholders to create a civil service that is creative and consiructive, imaginative and innovative, proactive and polite, professional and progressive, energetic and enabling, efficient and effective, and transparent and tech-enabled.

(i) Develop civil servants equipped with fit-for-future knowledge, skills and attitude yet fully entrenched in the ethos of Indian culture, to deliver on national priorities with the spirit of jan bhagidari.

(ii) Align elements of training with broader elements of capacity building, in consultation with CBC and SPV - Karmayogi Bharat, aimed at evolving a unified system of assessment and evaluation of individual capacities,

(iii) Bring out the role the Ministries/Departments have to play with respect to planning, implementation, assessment and reviewing of training for all employees for responsive and efficient service delivery. 

(iv) Facilitate CSTIs to chart and implement their capacities in the spirit of the Accreditation Framework to develop at par with global standards.

(v) Enable the CSTIs to become an effective implementation arm for National Capacity Building Plan (NCBP) and self-reliant, to dynamically evolve & deliver on outcomes.

(vi) Develop ability to deliver whole of government and organization-specific learning and development strategies.

(vii) Define role of training and CSTIs with reference to CBC, SPV - Karmayogi Bharat, MDOs and States that seek to collaborate and contribute to the Mission Karmayogi as a whole.

3. Role of various Stakeholders 

3.1 The role of each of the stakeholders under these guidelines shall be as follows: -

A. Role of Civil Service Training Institutions:  The CSTIs play a pivotal role in developing competencies in Government and are, therefore, at the heart of the training ecosystem. They will continue to be the nodal points for training of civil servants. In this capacity, these guidelines do not confine their roles only to plan, design and deliver the content but also to play an active role in assessment of training needs as well mas in evaluation of training. The CSTIs shall:

i. Accreditation: Register on the digital platform and be guided by the National Standards for Civil Service Training Institutions (NSCSTI) developed by CBC and strive for enhancing their quality/standards.

ii. Training Institutions Capacity Building: Prepare their own Capacity Building road map for continuously improving their institutional quality and capacity - both physical as well as training infrastructure, in alignment with standards and guidelines by CBC.

iii. Centre of Excellence: Strive to develop Centre(s) of Excellence (CoE) in niche domain/specialized areas to become think tanks for policy formulation, implementation and monitoring with ability to provide on demand research/consultancy services to Ministries/Depattments. These CoEs are to be identified and certified in consultation with the CBC and shall be required to achieve at least 4-star rating as per NSCSTI standards. The COEs shall endeavour to serve the larger training and capacity building ecosystem.

iv. Faculty Development:

(a) Strive to have a diverse mix of regular trainers, trainers on deputation and external trainers, academicians and practitioners as faculty members to ensure availability of experienced faculty;

(b) Create robust mechanisms for selection, training, tenure and incentive structure for faculty;

(c) Ensure that the Honorarium for visiting faculty/resource persons for training and content creation is reasonable and competitive;
