​​​​​​​​​​​​KJA-Management Committee (KJA-MC)

KJA considers new ideation and concepts; innovative proposals related to technology, policy analysis and research; brain-storming and sounding-board discussions on visioning and opinionating exercises on key issues of relevance to the state. KJA also undertakes cross-cutting and integrating discussions and consultation across government departments at various levels, industries, academia and citizenry. Through such a wide process of networking, consultation and discussions, it is envisaged that KJA will be able to stimulate, design and recommend various studies/projects/evaluations etc in different sectors – thereby, bringing knowledge inputs and expertise for the development of the state. Thus, KJA can serve as a catalyzing agent for many innovative, knowledge ideations – and, through its proposal/projects/recommendations, identify specific actions for implementation that the Government of Karnataka can take up further. 

KJA needs to regularly address management and administrative issues of KJA so that all day-to-day matters of administration, management and expenditures can be addressed and recommended for further actions.  

To address management and administrative issues of KJA, KJA-Management Committee was constituted on September 8, 2014 under the Chairmanship of Dr. Gayatri Saberwal. The KJA-Management Committee is empowered, on behalf of KJA, to consider all aspects of administration and management-procurements/purchase and out-sourcing, hiring of consultants/research staff/secretarial and support staff on contract basis, performance review of hired staff and recommending hikes, authorizing expenditure, interfacing with KJA Technical Committee and any other administrative matter. KJA, in its 7th KJA meeting held on September 7, 2017, approved for continuation of KJA-MC under the Co-Chairmanship of Dr Gayatri Saberwal and Prof. S. Sadagopan and tasked it to continue its role in the renewed term of KJA. The KJA Management Committee is hereby continued and re-constituted on November 7, 2017 with following Members:
