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What are other such outdated and ill-conceived rules, regulations or practices that hinder the normal day to day lived experience of the people?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

Bank of Baroda do not link the Aadhar with their respective account and ask the people to visit their home branch personally. If a person are living or doing any job in other state should rush to their native place for linking the Aadhar. Why there is no clear guidelines for the officer of the Bank. It should be a person which account to be linked with Aadhar can approach the nearest branch of the particular Bank to get it linked their account with Aadhar.

Noise pollution is one among the severe problem India is facing now a days.As our rules are not strict enough to deal with this menace.High powered amplifiers are used with out any concern to public.Honking is another problem.So it necessary to take immediate actions to control this menace by amending the laws and make aware the public about its bad effects by advertisement.

आदरणीय‌ प्रधानमन्त्री जी
डिजिटल इन्डिया योजना को लगभग‌ 4 साल होने वाले है लेकिन खेद के साथ लिखना पड़ रहा है कि आज भी आम आदमी को उपभोक्ता संरक्षण कानून या फिर सूचना का अधिकार कानून के तहत(लगभग‌ सभी प्रदेशो मे)सुनवाई के लिये प्रदेशो के मुख्यालयो मे स्थित‌ सम्बन्धित फोरम के समक्ष व्यक्तिगत रूप से कई कई बार‌ उपस्थित होना पडता है जिससे आम आदमी पर‌ भारी वित्तीय बोझ पडता है। अतः केन्द्रीय सूचना आयोग की ही तरह आम आदमी को उपभोक्ता संरक्षण कानून/RTI के लिये आनलाइन सुनवाई की सुविधा प्रदान करने की कृपा करे

there should be a single card with a unique no. say Aadhar Number, instead of seeding aadhar to bank, phone, various policies,PAN, etc. Single Smart Aadhar Card should act as his ID, PAN, Ration Card, Bank Ac. No., ATM Card, NSDL Card, Driving License, Handicap Card, Insurance Card,EACH AND EVRYTHING AS POSSIBLE , ..........
People will not have to carry all the set of cards and papers and it will help in easing lives of citizens

Our Country need drastic changes in Transportation: (Specially in Maharashtra)
1) Rural : Government can allow private transport in rural areas by relaxing rules. It will help to increase frequency.
2) Urban : State Transpotation Bus can not meet the expectations of people in terms of quality of service.
3) Can we increase speed of trains upto 250km/hr. no matter how much money it needs. it will result in drastic decrease in over prices of land& homes, population,over urbanization
