Jammu & Kashmir To Have District Level Governance Index
New Delhi, January 3 (TNA) Jammu & Kashmir will soon become the first Union Territory in the country to have a district level Good Governance Index. The framework of the proposed Index has been finalised with the technical support from the Centre for Good Governance(CGG) Hyderabad.
Good Governance Index at the district level, union minister Dr Jitendra Singh said, will enable each of the 20 districts of Jammu & Kashmir to rise to the level of some of the best administered districts of the country, with time bound disposal of office files and other matters, increased transparency, increased accountability and increased citizen participation.
He said, the next step would be to carry forward these Good Governance practices down to Tehsil and Block level.
The DGGI Framework has 58 Indicators drawn from different aspects of development and district administration distributed in all-encompassing 10 sectors such as Agriculture & allied sector, Commerce & Industry, Human Resource Development, Public Health, Public Infrastructure & Utilities, Economic Governance, Welfare & Development, Public Safety & Judiciary and Citizen Centric Governance.
