10th Report on States/Union Territories performance on CPGRAMS released by DARPG for the month of May, 2023

The Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG) released the Centralized Public Grievance Redressal and Monitoring System (CPGRAMS) monthly report for States for May, 2023. The said report provides a detailed analysis of types and categories of public grievances and the nature of disposal. This is the 10th report on State Governments/Union Territories published by DARPG.

A total of 65,983 Grievances were Redressed by State/UTs in May, 2023. This has meant that the pendency reduced to 1,94,713 grievances across State Governments. This is the highest ever monthly redressal of grievances observed across all States since the monthly reports were being published by DARPG.

In this report, DARPG has initiated the process of rankings State Governments/UTs on the basis of their performance in CPGRAMS redressal. Presently DARPG ranks states across 4 categories, i.e Union Territories, North Eastern States, with two other categories being bifurcated based on receipt of grievances. This ranking is part of the endeavour of Government of India to assist the States/UTs to review and streamline their Grievance Redressal System, and have a comparative assessment with other States/UTs. The GRI includes 2 dimensions and 4 indicators. The initiation of rankings is part of the DARPGs effort to improve grievance redress and delivery amongst states and in line with the recommendations of the 127th Parliamentary Standing Committee which recommended that DARPG monitor the effective redressal of grievances in the North Eastern States.

The rankings are based on the performance of states across these two dimensions for the period of 1.1.2023 to 31.5.2023. The top 3 performers among states across 4 categories with their scores are as shown below:
