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What are other such outdated and ill-conceived rules, regulations or practices that hinder the normal day to day lived experience of the people?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

प्रधान मंत्री,
हम अनुरोध करते हैं कि आपने गरीब परिवारों के 14 मध्यम वर्ग के छात्रों को कोई ऑनलाइन नौकरी नहीं दी है, तो आपसे अनुरोध है कि छात्रों के लिए ऑनलाइन नौकरियां उपलब्ध कराएं।

दिल्ली के अनाधिकृत कालोनियों में सम्पत्तियों को एक विशिष्ट पहचान संख्या दिया जाय, जिससे नगर निगम के पास कर के रूप में धन आयेगा और जनता को १० प्रकार का फायदा होगा। विस्तृत जानकारी मैनें एक योजना के रूप में तैयार किया है। मांगे जाने पर नि:शुल्क केन्द्र सरकार को सौंप सकता हूं।

Since the passengers are paying GST on airplanes tickets and customer are booking air tickets by themself using mobile applications or through internetthen then why airlines are charging service charges/fee. Even they are not providing any services for ticket booking. airport services are provided by airport authority & that charges are already included.

Modi ji, Please change the people's representation act to bring elections within reach of common man.1) State Funding of Elections instead of donations from private citizens.2) Give more power to Common Man by adopting Approval Voting System to select a public representative. I am available for further detailed explanation. My mobile number 9956343923 or 7651933235. This will help reduce corruption in public life and also cost of government formation.

I hereby like to share my views related to the water level falling down in India.Like many other schemes like toilet scheme,solar power subsidy scheme if you could encourage the rain water harvesting .you can start one more scheme related to harvesting.in this way it would be helpful for rising water level up.
