Good governance through citizen’s participation in india: An analysis
A liberal and dynamic democracy is based on the principles of good governance through vigorous participation of informed citizenry. Citizen engagement improves development outcomes, reduces poverty, and encourages peace by promoting social inclusion. Public participation can be characterised as informing the public, or taking their opinions in the policy matters. Public participation will undoubtedly lead to more accountable, transparent and responsive governance. Many steps have been taken by the government by introducing various policies and by enacting various laws for promoting participation of people in democracy but these steps are not effective enough to promote good governance. This project examines the concept of citizen participation in governance and how is it effective. It will also deal with the concerned areas where citizen’s participation will make a difference in the governance of the country. Also the project will focus on the steps taken by the government to form a more participative government and an analysis of its effectiveness.
