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What are other such outdated and ill-conceived rules, regulations or practices that hinder the normal day to day lived experience of the people?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

Being a resposible govt servent I would like to suggest the following
1. The rules governing service condition of govt employee s need to be simplified so that it can be easily implemented .
2. The reason in delay in appointment is attributed to lack of proper knowlege of reservation roster and varous recruiting agencies making similar appointment.In order to resolve this issue reservation roster app be prepared . Secondly recruitment agencies should make a pool of successful candidate .

GREAT SCIENTISTS & INNOVATORS ARE IN INDIA. THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO GET DIRECT CONTACT WITH PRIME MINISTER THROUGH THE COMMON ‘MYGOV’ WEBSITE. SO IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO OPEN A SEPARATE WEBSITE FOR MODIJI’S DIRECT ACCESS WITH THEIR NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR EASING LIVES OF CITIZENS.

Dear pm sir I request please stop How will it be if India stops selling tobacco from pan shops and general stores and start selling through medical stores. As sudden stop in consumption of tobacco products leads to hazards. making tobacco available only under medical prescription given by a gov doctor might show a great result. And encourage to youth for study and inovation

For easing lives of citizens, in response to Modiji’s fre-quent requests, some Indian innovators, who, had already invented wonderful swadeshi technologies worth trillion dollars, which can create millions of new jobs and can push up GDP growth rate beyond 10%, are not getting any response through the present MyGov web site. If Modiji is interested to have direct access to such mega technolo-gies, a separate special website should be opened for Modiji’s direct access prohibiting others.

I suggest that their should be a government organised app which provides proper details of electric shutdowns and water supply time to prevent wastage and better organising.

वर्तमान में अनुसूचित जाति व अनुसूचित जन जाति के लोग अपनी कृषि भूमि सामान्य जाति को बेच नही सकते जिससे उनको अपनी वास्तविक कीमत नही मिल पाती और गरीब लोगों को इस कानून से हानि उठानी पड़ रही है साथ ही यह कानून मौलिक अधिकारों का भी उल्लंघन करता है अतः श्रीमान इस कानून को हटा कर SC/ST के लोगों को अपनी कृषि भूमि स्वतंत्र रूप से किसी को भी बेचने का हक दिया जाना चाहिए ताकि उन्हें अपना वाजिब दाम मिल सके

Dear PM Sir I have an idea regarding encouraging people to file income tax returns. Sir I suggest that you offer 50k/100k debit card to citizens who have an account for their financial needs however in return you ask them to file their income tax return and obtain the debit card from bank free of cost and interest for 1 year and thereafter you levy interest rate based on tax paid.by ensuring this you can make tax compliance and at the same time you can get the database of non filers.
