Comments / Feedback


I wish to commend you for your initiative in launching a website for your think-tank. You have a most impressive panel of eminent advisors to guide you.

Please accept my best wishes for the success of your mission.

Former Foreign Secretary and former Indian Ambassador to United States.

 



 First of all, my congratulations to your team for the initiative & the impressive website.

You may take one topic every fortnight & invite three/four eminent persons to give their views where after you can invite comments. E.g., topics like Police reforms, civil service reforms, judicial administration etc.

You can also have a Grievances Forum where you can invite public to offer suggestions for improving public governance: not individual problem but problems affecting public & bring it to the notice of concerned authorities. You can publicise the feedback.

You can start Innovation Corner where people can suggest reforms in the working of public offices without high expenditure.

You can have a Book Review Section where you can review books on important public issues.
