Govt releases ‘Model Panchayat' citizens charter for delivery of services

TOG NEWS SERVICE, NEW DELHI, JUN 05, 2021: PANCHAYATI Raj Minister Mr Narendra Singh Tomar on Friday released the framework for the ‘Model Panchayat Citizens Charter' for the delivery of services across 29 sectors, aligning actions with localised Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Panchayats across India will adopt and customise the framework to ensure the transparent and effective delivery of public services for sustainable development and enhanced citizen service experiences.

" The charter will deepen inclusive and accountable local self governments by incorporating diverse views while designing and delivering services," said an official statement.

It is expected that the panchayats will utilise this framework to draw up a citizens charter and adopt it through a resolution of the Gram Sabha by August 15, followed by States drawing a timebound action plan.

The citizen charter will provide services to the people in a time-bound manner, redressing their grievances and improving their lives. This will help the citizens become aware of their rights and make the panchayats directly accountable to the people.
