Model Question and Answers for APSC | Discuss the key elements of Mission Karmayogi and explain how it can lead to the holistic development of the human resources.

Ans : Mission Karmayogi is a National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building (NPCSCB), which aims to upgrade the postrecruitment training mechanism of the officers and employees at all levels.
The key elements of the programme are as follows:
1. Supporting Transition from 'Rules based' to 'Roles based’ HR Management.

2. Aligning work allocation of civil servants by matching their competencies to the requirements of the post.
3. To emphasize 'on-site learning' to complement the 'off-site' learning
4. To calibrate all Civil Service positions to a Framework of Roles, Activities and Competencies (FRACs) approach
5. To make available to all civil servants, an opportunity to continuously build and strengthen their Behavioural, Functional and Domain Competencies in their self-driven and mandated learning paths
6. A Public Human Resources Council will serve as the apex body for providing strategic direction to the task of Civil Services Reform and capacity building.
Its role in the holistic development of human resources and state’s capacity:
1. The mission proposes to set up a Capacity Building Commission which will ensure the holistic development of human resources
2. The iGOT-Karmayogi platform brings the scale and state-of-theart infrastructure to augment the capacities of over two crore officials in India.
3. Besides capacity building, service matters like confirmation after probation period, deployment, work assignment and notification of vacancies etc. would eventually be integrated with the proposed competency framework.
4. Mission Karmayogi aims to prepare the Indian civil servant for the future by making him more creative, constructive, imaginative, innovative, proactive, professional, progressive, energetic, enabling, transparent and technology-enabled.
5. Empowered with specific role-competencies, the civil servant will be able to ensure efficient service delivery of the highest quality standards. 

A transformational change in Civil Service Capacity is proposed by organically linking the transformation of work culture, strengthening public institutions and adopting modern technology to build civil service capacity with the overall aim of ensuring efficient delivery of services to citizens
