According to a Personnel Ministry order, the task force will include Govind Iyer, Consultant at global management consulting group Egon Zehnder, and Pankaj Bansal, Co-founder and Group CEO of HR tech company PeopleStrong, in addition to Mr Lal, founder and ex-CEO of Infosys Limited.

According to the statement, Adil Zainulbhai, chairman designate of the Capacity Building Commission, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), will be a special invitee to the task force's discussions.

The Centre recently approved the 'National Programme for Civil Services Capacity Building - Mission Karmayogi' to effect a transformational shift from rule-based training to role-based capacity development of all civil services in the country in order to improve citizen experience with government services and increase the availability of competent labour.

The order stated that in order to effectively carry out this competency-driven mission, a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), namely Karmayogi Bharat, would be established as a not-for-profit company. It will be established as a 100 percent government-owned entity under Section 8 of the Companies Act of 2013.

According to the SPV, it will be responsible for delivering and managing design, implementation, enhancement, and management of a digital platform and infrastructure, managing and delivering competency assessment services, managing governance of telemetry data, and ensuring monitoring and evaluation.

"It has been decided to form a task force comprised of leading experts to draw a clear road map for the guidance and operationalisation of the 'Karmayogi Bharat,' the SPV," said the order.

According to the statement, the task force will be free to form working groups, co-opt additional members/experts/special invitees, and consult with national and international leaders in the field.

The task force must submit recommendations on the SPV's organisational structure, including vision, mission, and functions alignment; policy frameworks for HR, compensation, IT, procurement, and oversight functions; and staffing plans for top management, including board members and key personnel, with panels of potential candidates.

The task force is expected to complete its work within six months of its formation and to submit its recommendations in the form of periodic/interim reports on the various terms assigned to it, according to the Personnel Ministry order.
