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What are other such outdated and ill-conceived rules, regulations or practices that hinder the normal day to day lived experience of the people?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

उ.प्र.में संचालित सा.स.समिति के सचिव को पहले वेतनछीन कमीशनब्यापारी बनया गया,लेकिन हुआ ये की इनका व्यापार धीरेधीरे कम कर दिया गया और आज इतना कम है कि इनके ऊपर आश्रित परिवार बहुत ही दयनीय जीवन जी रहे है
(मौसमी बेरोजगारी से पीड़ित)
ये संख्याबल में बेहद कम है इसीलिए पूर्ववर्ती/वर्तमान सरकार इनकी नही सुनती लेकिन किसानों में बहुत ही प्रभावशाली क्योकि सरकार और किसान की कड़ी है,जिसका प्रयोग करके इन लोगो ने up में सरकार बदलने में अछि भूमिका निभाई क्योकि इन्हें आपकी सरकार से उम्मीद थी/है

IRCTC provide insurance cover but for nomination one has to go insurance company web side.It has been better if while booking reservation, IRCTC include nominate name in its portal format.Many times web link sent by insurance company does not open to fill up nominee details.

Dear Sir, Development is not possible without the population control
as you will raise the infrastructure, the population gets double
law with penel provisions should be made to control the population.

Dear Sir,
I am an Advocate since last 20 years, and I do strongly feel that, policing pattern should be changed to control the crime and criminals
There should be two types of police
1. Social Police - to control and manage the law and order on festivals, for different religious, and political processions, VIP movements, at public places, security, and for the routine activities
2. Crime Police- to investigate,to arrest to put the charge sheet, to conduct the proceedings in the court
