The Programme

The National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building (NPCSCB)- Mission Karmayogi aims to create a competent civil service rooted in Indian ethos, with a shared understanding of India’s priorities, working in harmonization for effective and efficient public service delivery. The Mission seeks to keep the civil service at the center of all change, empowering them to deliver in challenging environments. The focus of NPCSCB is also on enhancing the government-citizen interaction, with officials becoming enablers for citizens and business, with development of Behavioural-functional-domain competencies leading to ease of living and ease of doing business. Thus, by design, Mission Karmayogi adopts a citizen-centric approach for civil service reforms.

Designed as a six-pronged initiative, NPCSCB lays emphasis on developing the potential of officials, training institutes and the government. It re-energizes key aspects in the capacity building and HR management structure in government, including regulation and governance.

On 2nd September 2020, Government approved the National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building (NPCSCB) with six key pillars including Policy Framework, Institutional Framework, Competency Framework, Digital Learning Framework (iGOT-Karmayogi), the electronic Human Resource Management System (e-HRMS) and the Monitoring and Evaluation Framework. The Programme will cover all civil servants (including contractual employees) across different ministries, departments, organizations and agencies of the Union Government.
