Vision 2025 is intended to provide a governance strategy for Karnataka over the next seven years. Its scope is simultaneously broad-based and specific. It aims to provide a way forward for Karnataka in the short and medium terms and is intended to serve as a bridge between different sectors and diverse interests. It shall endeavour to speak to every constituent and answer the question, “what’s in it for me?”, which in principle will drive its context and substance. In the world of digital transformation; driven by technology, mobile telephony, cable TV and the internet, the aspirations of people, especially the millennium generation, is undergoing a paradigm shift from being “needs driven” to achievement oriented. Social media has empowered the common man on an unprecedented level and there is far more awareness of their rights and entitlements, with an expectation of instant and visible results from an effective and responsive Government. More than before, the Government is now working with an integrated and socially aware citizenry and therefore there is a larger public scrutiny of the actions by administration, which in turn casts the image of any Government. In an ‘around-the-clock’, media driven, competitive and globally interconnected world, it is not enough for a Government to administer but to set an evolutionary agenda. Hence the need for a document that articulates this vision and provides a roadmap to achieve it.
