The Context

Karnataka is emerging as a Knowledge State in the country and needs to take on the 21st century global challenges in terms of innovation, conservation of heritage, generation of new knowledge, application of knowledge in every sphere of life, skill development, enhancement of competencies, creation of better human capital to create new knowledge economy besides creation of more humane society. 

Government of Karnataka has constituted an experts body in the Karnataka Jnana Aayoga (KJA).

The reason for having a body like KJA in the state is mainly to engage experts in different areas and  to obtain professional and knowledge recommendations for improving governance in state, benefit to society and enabling citizens of Karnataka. As an independent professional-expert body, KJA Members bring new ideation, undertake extensive brain-storming and wide consultations on important and relevant issues for the state’s development and make specific actionable ​recommendations to government. KJA was first established in September, 2008 for 3 year term and since then has been re-constituted for subsequent periods. The present KJA has been formally notified on December 26, 2016.
