PM Modi stressed the importance of adopting a “whole-of-the-government” approach in training and nurturing the potential of officials.

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi also addressed the issue of vertical and horizontal silos and the constraints of hierarchy, urging officials to overcome these barriers and value the experience of individuals regardless of their position.
Highlighting the success of the iGOT Karmayogi platform, which has garnered over 10 lakh users, Modi expressed his satisfaction with the enthusiasm of people within the system to learn and improve. He explained that the Karmayogi Mission aims to enhance the orientation, mindset, and approach of government personnel, leading to their contentment and happiness, and ultimately improving the governance system.
