Capacity Building Commission
• The centre plans to set up a Capacity Building Commission to harmonise the diverse and fragmented training landscape and create shared faculty and resources.
• The commission will have a supervisory role over all training institutions to ensure that there is a common understanding of India's aspirations and development goals.
• Currently, many inconsistencies have been noted in training priorities by various training institutions in various ministries, which has prevented the shared understanding of India's developmental aspirations
