Good Governance Index scientifically designed on various parameters of governance: Jitendra Singh

New Delhi: Union Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh on Wednesday said Good Governance Index (GGI) has been scientifically designed on various parameters of governance.
Dr Singh launched the ‘Good Governance Index’ at an event organised by the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, on the occasion of Good Governance Day, here.
The Good Governance Day is observed on the birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
On the occasion, Dr Singh said Good Governance Index has been designed keeping in mind the citizen-centricity, which is the prime mantra of Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He added that GGI would also seek to determine the status of governance as it exists today and it will provide reference threshold for future also.
‘Documentation of good governance index is our effort in the direction to carry forward Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for good governance,’ Dr Singh said.
The Minister said good governance initiatives by the Government draw inspiration from former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
He added that good governance initiatives are being replicated not only by the states in India, but also by the other countries.
On the occasion, the Minister also launched the 15th edition of Central Secretariat Manual of Office Procedure (CSMOP).
He released the Handbook for the Retiring Central Government Employees and the Smart Card facility for Department Canteen of DoPT.
The MoS (PP) also released a booklet on major initiatives/achievements of DoPT and Strategic Initiatives of Department of Pensions and Pensioners Welfare (DoPPW).
