Prime Minister has extended his greetings and best wishes for the success of the Third Sushasan Saptah. In his message the Prime Minister said “In the Amrit Kaal, we are guided by the principles of ‘Panch Pran’. For example, the first principle of becoming a developed nation by 2047 should be our guiding light in every policy or procedural decision. Similarly, working with a mindset of serving the people and reducing their burden would be a way of removing colonial remnants from governance. It is important that our institutions and people bring out such actionables for good governance based on ‘Panch Pran’. The most vital element of good governance is the simplification of procedures and practices within the government to make them more citizen-centric and people friendly. Such initiatives reflect the establishment of a transformative relationship between people and government ”  He also said that ‘The years till 2047 are an opportunity to realize the vision of building a strong, inclusive and developed India. For India ‘Yahi samay hai, sahi samay hai’.”

The Good Governance Week 2023 is the third consecutive year of week-long celebrations organized by Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances (DARPG), Government of India.

The Good Governance Week events yield very positive outcomes and generate a great sense of commitment and togetherness in the Government’s steadfast objective of fostering administrative reforms.  On this occasion, administrations of States, UTs and at the district level share the platform with Government of India and highlight the best practices in administration which in turn promotes cooperative federalism and improves the discharging of our administrative functions in a cohesive manner that further improves the lives of our citizens.
