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What are other such outdated and ill-conceived rules, regulations or practices that hinder the normal day to day lived experience of the people?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

Aapne india ko cashless india banane ke baare me jo socha hai wo bahut hi achha hai. lakin agar iski suruwaat agar chhote paimaane par kar ke dekhe to saayad achha result aa sakta hai. Isliye pahle bharat ke kuchh bade city jaise ki mumbai,delhi,banglore etc. me ye try kiya jaa sakta hai.or phir dheere dheere pure desh me.

Dear Modi Sir,

I would like to draw your attention towards misuse of Law, particularly where burden of proof has been reversed e.g. anti dowry Laws / sexual abuse laws / protection of Domestic violence Laws. Statistics shows that more than 90% cases are false and have become tool to extortion and blackmailing of male member and his family. These laws were promulgated to help females but fact is that most of the victims are female relative of male members like Sister/mother. Pl look into it.

Buyer always confused regarding comparision of price between two packs of the same product. If standard packing is must for every vender then customer compare with other product price. But vender supply some product of 1 lLtr other product packed of 965 ML it seams like 1 Ltr. To avoid this kind of confusion regulation are needed to fixed packing of 750 ML then only 1 Ltr. Must not allow in between the same. Better to standardize packing of 1ML,2 ML,5/10/25/50 ML,75ML/100/250/500/750 and 1L only

Sir, provision for online application for certificates such as Birth, Death, Caste, etc shall be made so that citizens could avail these facility without any friction with system. Sir, I have seen touts taking 1000 of rupees from poor people for this. Again, the system could be designed like our passport issuing system.

To improve ease of living of citizens, certain changes in government rules & regulations shall be made. Every citizen needs to have a marriage certificate as per hindu Marriage act for there marriage, but it is a pain to obtain marriage certificates in almost all states. Touts charge you any amount as per their wish. The application process can be made online like Passport issuing system with facility of appointment at a particular date & time at the Registry office. Fee payment online.

As per current drug regulations, its compulsory to keep product information sheet along with every medicine. Now why it is compulsory? because it contains VIMP information about medicines ie dose/sideeffects/indications/incompatibility with food and other drugs/to be taken with/without food, etc. Now the Qn is, current practice is to print it in English!! Why cant we revise the rule to print in Hindi also along with English for the ease to understand. It will hardly have 5 paisa increase in cost

सर हमारे इलाके मे रेलवे लाइन बहुत ही कम है आज बुलेट ट्रेन तक उपलब्ध हो रही पर हमारे यहां तो रेलवे लाइन का ही अभाव है हमारी सुनने वाला भी कोई नहीं,फतेहपुर-रतनगढ़ लाइन का तो सर्वे भी हो गया पर काम शुरु नहीं हुआ,फतेहपुर-सालासर-सुजानगढ़ रेलवे लाइन हो जाए तो लाखो सालासर यात्रियों को फायदा होगा,कृपया संज्ञान ले और जनहित के ये कार्य शुरु करवाएं🙏
