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What are other such outdated and ill-conceived rules, regulations or practices that hinder the normal day to day lived experience of the people?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.

COW CULTURE in Hindutva Principles. If eating COW of certain DNA types is not good, then kindly propagate that to Americans, Europeans and Chinese. Anything good should be taught and propagated to all human beings. It should not be restrained to just 15% of the world population. I see eminent Hindutva Preachers conducting Cow Conference in USA, Europe. But mostly the ideas are getting shared with the Indians who are living there.

Dear Sir, I asked some information about NEET exam from the CBSE. For two questions, they said there is no data. I cant imagine a big nation like ours cant have a small data. Kindly see the attached file as the proof for my request. Kindly introduce a penalty scheme for the officers who dont respond rightly. The answer to my query is just a "Search" click in the excel file or the database.

Respected PM Modi sir, I am hereby with lot of hope to suggest you about indian railways, as today a railway incident happened that a hightension wire falls on 2 railway bogies, so i want to suggest you that please conduct an audit of all hightension wires to be in place to avoid such incidents. Suggestion is very small but please take it seriously. Thank you.

There need to be one helpline number which give solution. Present procedures are complicated,time consuming,inefficient,waste man hours,long ques.
