Modi government keeping in mind the “minimum government, maximum governance” model is about to introduce a Good Governance Index. The government is also focused to optimize the grievance redressal system.

Grievance redressal to be more action oriented
When CPGRAMS was launched in 2014, it got 3 lakhs grievances. The number rose to 11 lakh in the previous year and currently is 6 lakh as of May. The program is a success with the government emphasizing on making it more action-oriented. We will see an upgraded CPGRAMS in the next 3 months with better optimization of grievance redressal system and sector/department wise grievances. The main focus is on the shortening of grievance processing speed.
