New Delhi : The Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, the people have resolved to build a glorious and self-reliant India during Amrit Kaal of next 25 years. The government’s role is to complement the people’s resolve by being an enabler in their efforts. Our role is to increase opportunities and remove obstacles from their path.

Extending his best wishes for the success of the Second “Sushasan Saptah”(Good Governance Week) being observed from December 19-25, 2022, the Prime Minister in a message said, guided by the principle of ‘Citizen-First’, our Government is striving tirelessly to make the ecosystem transparent and faster by simplifying procedures and processes at every level.

The Prime Minister said, we have undertaken various citizen-centric initiatives including redressal of public grievances, online services, disposal of service delivery applications and good governance practices. Our vision is to expand the outreach of service delivery mechanisms, making them more effective.

The Prime Minister said, it has always been our endeavor to increase the impact of governance, but reduce the interference of the government in every citizen’s life. The scrapping of thousands of unnecessary compliances, repealing of thousands of outdated laws and decriminalization of many kinds of minor offences are major steps towards this end.

The Prime Minister said, Technology has immense potential to bring the government and citizens closer. Today, technology has become a powerful tool to empower citizens, as well as a medium to optimize transparency and accountability in day-to-day functioning. Through various policy interventions, we are strongly marching ahead towards digital empowerment of citizens and digital transformation of institutions.
