(a) & (b): The Central Government is determined to provide good governance that is corruption- free, transparent, accountable and responsive at all times.
For promoting ‘competition,’ ‘simplifying transactions’, ‘ensuring accessibility and responsiveness’ and ‘reduction of discretion’, as laid out in the 4th Report of 2nd Administrative Reforms Commission titled ‘Ethics in Governance’, all Ministries/ Departments of the Government of India and the State Governments/Union Territories have been requested to formulate appropriate polices in a time bound manner. All Ministries/Departments/States/UTs have been advised to revise and effectively implement the Citizens’ Charters and provide quality services. The Government has also introduced the Right of Citizens for Time Bound Delivery of Goods and Services and Redressal of their Grievances Bill, 2011 in the Lok Sabha on 20.12.2011.
The enactment of the Right to Information Act, 2005, as a comprehensive legislation, marks a benchmark in transparency and accountability in Government.
