Launching the scheme, Union minister Prakash Javadekar described Mission Karmayogi as the “biggest human resource development reform in the government”.

The Mission Karmayogi scheme will be open to all government employees for their re-skilling. They would be encouraged under the scheme to better equip themselves with their domain, and improve their functional and behavioural competencies.

The scheme will be under the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) with the Prime Minister’s HR Council functioning as the apex body to provide guidance and direction to these capacity-building reforms. The council will have chief ministers as members.
