One of the important endeavors of the present government has been to improve the 'Ease of Living'. In simple words, this means that the citizen-government interface, in matters of daily routine, must be made as seamless as possible and as citizen friendly as possible. Among other things, this has translated into reforming many rules and regulations and in an overwhelming number of cases completely doing away with such antediluvian rules which had not only outlived their utility, but in many cases were frankly anti-people. The mandate has been clear - between the citizens and the governments, the rules and processes must defer to ensuring the ease of living of citizens.

Consider for example the earlier rule of seeking gazetted officers attestation to validate one's documents before appearing in exams. That rule is now history. Trusting the citizens was the mandate and self-attestation is now the new rule. Or consider the move to scrap interviews for non-gazetted Group D, C and B government jobs. In one stroke the entire industry of 'recommendations' has been shut down and pure merit has become the norm.

What are other such outdated and ill-conceived rules, regulations or practices that hinder the normal day to day lived experience of the people? In day-to-day governance issues what are the processes or system that can be simplified or simply done away with? Which are processes that serve the exact opposite purpose they are intended to serve? Rules, regulations and laws that serve no useful social purpose but merely create unnecessary red tape and bureaucracy and therefore need to go?

MyGov invites citizens, members of civil society, journalists, students, teachers, police officers, government employees, Parliamentarians, academics experts, bureaucrats, social media influencers, Think Tanks and all other interested people to give their considered view on the subject.

केंद्रीय स्कूलों को अब प्रत्येक तहसील स्तर पर जिस की आबादी 50 हजार हो,कम से कम एक स्कूल होना चाहिए,ताकि छोटे शहरों के बच्चों को भी समान हक मिल सके🙏

सरकारी नौकरी के भर्ती में जो फीस लिया जाता है उसे कम किया जाये या नि शुल्क किया जाये क्यों की एक बरोजगार आदमी कहा से कितना पैसा आवेदन के पीछे देगा क्यों की उसकी पास आय का साधन नहीं है इस लिए तो सरकारी नौकरी के लिए आवेदन करता लेकिन राज्य शासन उसमे मनमानी फिश लेते है तो माननीय प्रधानमंत्री जी से निवेदन है की इस पहल में कोई योजना बनाये क्यों की हमारे देश की सबसे बड़ी समस्या बेरोजगारी है इस बेरोजगारी की वजह भी सरकारी नौकरी ही है विस्तार से PDF में

if the problem of unemployment is not controlled now it would create a huge gap between the rich and the poor and may cause youth commiting serious crimes

my concern is about 100% fdi in single brand retail bjp being in opposition opposed the 51% fdi and today approved 100%. the worry is that unorganised business men in bharat are a big employers they dont need to be taken care by govt in anyways but these big companies will make difficult for them to even survive and hence there would be more unemployment. the idea is govt can help small business instead to do business more easily and so the economy wud automatically gro nd thr wud b les job cris

The income of all temples should be accountable and be deposited in Govt account. The pandits/pujaris may be paid in terms of salaries along with to trusts for development and maintenance of the premises. It is the property of the nation donated in temples by dishonest people stealing the various taxes. This should be utilized for growth of the nation.

I would suggest Govt of India to use all temples' wealth to give free education to all children of India. If this property is used, no budget will be required for education system in India for the next 100 years which will be sufficient time to educate all. If there is any hesitation to break the treasures of temples, I will take lead in breaking all locks of rooms in temples having wealth and ready to accept the curse of GOD. This property is donated by dishonest people and should be used.

Suggestions: 1 Make education free to all irrespective of caste,creed,sex,religion in Kendriya Vidyalays with opening Kendriya Vidlayas in replacement of every school in village. Education system will have to be improved in any condition. Basic structure of education system will have to be abolished by way of weeding out private schools as these schools have entered into education platform as business hub.

I would like to suggest to improve the condition of poor people: 1. Continue reservations in jobs on caste basis but the sons/daughters of persons inducted in IAS/IPS/IFS/IRS should be abolished and subsequently for allied services people after 15 years. 2.No reservation should be granted to those having income more than 10 lacs from agriculture or having cultivated land in their name.The people without land are not able to compete with children with land.

Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas, Bahut Achha Laga, My dear Prime Minister Ji. I salute all your efforts to change in Indi's rudimentary system of casteism which is the main reasons for downtrodden condition of India as India is having 85% of population which is in this condition with 15% of county's wealth in their hand whereas the remaining 15% population with 85% wealth in their hands. How can it be possible to uplift the country with 85% population having sharing of only 15% wealth?
