Amit Shah to release district-level Good Governance Index for Jammu and Kashmir today
Srinagar: Union home minister Amit Shah will release the Good Governance Index for 20 districts of Jammu and Kashmir today, a first of its kind for a Union territory.
With 58 indicators, the framework will assess different aspects of development and district administration in sectors such as agriculture, commerce and industry, human resource development, public health, public infrastructure and utilities, economic governance, and public safety, among others.
The Index was prepared by the Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances (DARPG) in collaboration with the government of Jammu and Kashmir following the resolution adopted during a regional conference on replication of good governance practices held in July last year in Srinagar. Jitendra Singh, Union Minister for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, and Manoj Sinha, Lieutenant Governor of Jammu & Kashmir, will also address the event.
