New Delhi- The Union Minister for Home and Cooperation Amit Shah on Saturday virtually launched the District Good Governance Index (DGGI) in Jammu Kashmir.
“Today is an important day not only for Jammu &Kashmir but the country as a whole, because the new beginning that Jammu &Kashmir has made today will reach every State and this will lead to healthy competition of good governance in every district of the country,” Shah said, as per an official spokesperson after releasing the DGGI.
Jammu & Kashmir District Good Governance Index covers 10 sectors of governance and 58 indices with 116 data items, which include, Agriculture Services, Commerce and Industry, Human Resources, Environment, Justice and Public Safety, Social Welfare and Development
The Home Minister, he said, asserted that the district is an important unit if good governance is to be taken to the grassroots level in the true sense and unless there is good governance at the district level, then it has no meaning
“Competition between districts through this Good Governance Index will be of great benefit to the general public of Jammu & Kashmir,” Shah said
After the launch of the Good Governance Index by PM, the Home Minister said that there is healthy competition among the States and with the Jammu & Kashmir District Good Governance Index, now there will be healthy competition among districts across the country to provide good governance.
Shah also praised Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha for governing the Union Territory under the guidance of the Prime Minister and said a big change has been seen in Jammu and Kashmir, in line with the vision of a New India.
