To equip civil servants with the right attitudes, skills, knowledge and competencies aligned to the demands and expectations of a rapidly growing economy and its aspirational citizens, Government of India launched the National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building (NPCSCB) – Mission Karmayogi. Mission Karmayogi aims at developing a citizen-centric and future-ready civil service through democratized and competency-led capacity building, which encompasses in its scope a mandate that unifies the efforts of structured, formal and service-based training through Civil Service Training Institutions (CSTIs) with on-demand digital training through iGOT-Karmayogi platform.

3. In this regard, this Department had issued Karmayogi Guidelines, 2023, vide OM dated 28/07/2023, to bring more clarity to the roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders in the training and capacity building landscape, including that of the institutions established under Mission Karmayogi. The Guidelines mandate Civil Service Training Institutes (CSTIs) to strive to develop Centre(s) of Excellence (CoE) in niche domain/specialised areas.

4. In continuation to the Mission Karmayogi Guidelines, the Guidelines for setting up of Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Civil Service Training Institutes (CSTIs) have been issued, detailing the objective, function, structure, funding and process for setting up Centres of Excellence (CoE) in CSTIs. The Guidelines are enclosed herewith.

5. All Ministries/ Departments are requested to kindly circulate these Guidelines to Civil Service Training Institutes (CSTIs) under their administrative control to initiate the process of setting up of Centres of Excellence in specific areas.
