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What are other such outdated and ill-conceived rules, regulations or practices that hinder the normal day to day lived experience of the people?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

Respected Sir, cheques are taken as Collateral Security and if an ordinary borrower is unable to pay some instalments these cheques (undated originally) are presented in bank under Negotiable instruments Act (by Lender ) and the borrower get punished.Big corporates/CEO's/Directors should also be compelled to give cheques as collateral security and treated at PAR with common borrowers like poor home-loan takers,farmers.

Respected Sir,dection 80C of income tax act must be done away with because a person who is saving/investing up to Rs 150,000 for himself gets tax benefit, but a poor person who can not save because of his poor background and because he is supporting his parents,brothers and sisters is punished by levying tax on his hard earned income.

I am requesting you to talk to MUHS and convince them that if some student have to give exam one more time and six months are wasted so make sure that they can complete their internship within six months so six months are not extended and the idea for this is that double there posting(2posting of 2department for every6 month,so that they can do their work and complete12 month intership within six months so student do not feel pressurised and depressed,among medical student depression is high
