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What are other such outdated and ill-conceived rules, regulations or practices that hinder the normal day to day lived experience of the people?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

Sir Reservation is the biggest barrier in our countries growth,many of the talents are left behind to reservation process.Also if it shud be there ,it shud be on economic and merit basis and not on social basis.Secondly in my consideration Police shud be taken under union subject as curruption is increasing the heights. I find it so weird that during any mass voilence or protests ,thousands of people are killed ,property destroyed but I find the policemen doing nothing aa if they have no power.

I fill very proude to have P.M. like you...You made India proude on national and international forums.
The thing which not only I but many like me expect from an capable P.M. like you is to implement that the 'reservations should be based on economical conditions, and not by cast only'.Because I have the personal experience of a rich person from reserved class got all facilities but an poor student who don't even afford to pay his hostel accomodation has to pay all tution fees.

Dear Mr. Prime minister: Congratulations on 4 years of wonderful work. I hope and wish you get another 5 years to transform India.
I have one suggestion please: Can aadhar be linked to our inheritance law and be made acceptable by banks and other financial/govt institutions ?
Say I link my daughter's aadhar to my aadhar, which then simply becomes one document as a proof of inheritance?
Thanks and regards
