The Karnataka Jnana Aayoga (Karnataka Knowledge Commission) completed the distinction of being the only state-level knowledge commission in India to complete its term of five years in 2013. This report analyses the major achievements of the KJA (Karnataka Jnana Aayoga) in this period, and attempts to identify the key reasons for success and failure in the many activities it carried out, from the points of view of the planners of its programmes, the implementers of these, and those who were expected to benefit from them. Insights are also offered on the niche opportunities offered by such a commission towards the stimulation of knowledge processes within governance institutions and their expression in public spaces of academics and the common citizenry.
