At the DoPT headquarters in New Delhi, Dr. Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Science and Technology, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy, and Space, officially launched the Capacity Building Plan (CBP) for Government employees.
The DoPT and the Capacity Building Commission (CBC) worked together to develop the Plan.
The CBP is a new initiative by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to train officers and rationalise the deployment of officers and personnel based on the abilities and learned competencies, according to Dr. Jitendra Singh, who spoke at the event. It emphasises the modernization of government buildings.
“Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has emphasised on eGovernance that leads to Easy, Economic and Environment friendly functioning in the Government. Easy implies Elaborate, eOffice leads to Economy, while doing away with file work saves not only time but is also Environment friendly. The Administrative reforms initiated by PM Modi are aimed at creating an efficient, transparent and corruption-free administration,” he said.
According to Dr. Jitendra Singh, the Karmayogi Prarambh module is now a part of the induction training for all government workers, and it has also been implemented for new hires who joined the government service through the Rozgar Mela, whose sixth iteration was held yesterday and at which PM Modi distributed appointment letters to more than 51,000 young people.
The DoPT Minister requested that the CBC update and improve the numerous training courses on a regular basis because artificial intelligence is likely to revolutionise our educational and workplace environments.
“In this age of technology, the doubling time has shrunk from five years to less than a year,” he said.
Dr. Jitendra Singh praised the CBP for developing the iGOT training modules for all government employees, from ASO to JS, and for a few select courses, even Secretaries. He then requested that the CBC Chairman, Shri Adil Zainulbhai, create a comparable Training Module for Ministers as well.
The CBC Chairman informed the Minister that 700 courses have been introduced on the iGOT platform. Of the roughly 3 million Central Govt employees, he said, 1 million staff is in the Railways, another 1 million in CAPFs and the remaining 1 million in the rest of Ministries and Departments. 80% skills are common related to functional and behavioural skills while just 20% are domain oriented related to specific tasks and roles. The Mission Karmayogi and iGOT aims to transform ‘karamcharis’ to ‘Karamyogis’, he said.
