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 an​d wide consultations on important and relevant issues for the state’s development and make specific actionable recommendations to government.​​
