“Mere good governance is not enough; it has to be pro-people and pro-active. Good governance is putting people at the centre of the development process.”

~Narendra Modi

The Modi wave across the country is to be credited for inciting the long forgotten concept of good governance in people’s voice. 2015 election majorly focused on bringing developmental change in the country, which also became people’s choice as BJP-led NDA government came in power.

Governance has now again become the topic of discussion from college campuses to village gatherings and newsroom debates to household discussions.


This kind of awareness on governance issues prevailing in the society can, and is, leading to great change and reforms to achieve the same. The government, over the past one year, has taken several steps to achieve their development aim as mentioned during their campaigns and good governance topped their list.

Several steps have been taken over the period of time by several governments to work online developing governance. Steps taken by the BJP led-NDA government has its own share which signify their intentions to achieve the same. A list of good governance steps by the present centre power are:

Jan Dhan Yojana: Over 14 crore bank accounts were opened, nearly 10 crore RuPay debit cards were allotted along with providing the common people with life coverage and accidental insurance for as low as Rs 12. The yojna was revolutionary in the sense that banks have existed in this country for long yet several crores of people were (and still are) without bank accounts.

Swachch Bharat Abhiyan: This campaign, very close to the heart of our prime minister, is a nationwide drive aimed to achieve cleanliness of the streets, roads and infrastructure of the country, covering 4,041 statutory cities and towns. This is to make people aware of the habit where they do not litter or dirty the walls and streets when they can easily choose not to.

Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and Infrastructure Investment Trust (InvIT): The REIT owns and manages income generating developed properties and offers its unit to public investors. On the other hand, InvIT provides an additional framework for investment in infrastructure in the country and would own and manage income generating infrastructure projects.

Warehouse Infrastructure Fund: NABARD was allocated a fund of Rs 5000 crores for the creation of an infrastructure relating to the storage of agricultural commodities. Consequent to the allocation, the fund was named Warehouse Infrastructure Fund (WIF 2014-15).

Installation of Skill Development Ministry: The ministry is formulated to enhance the employability of the youth to whom we are committed to providing jobs through initiatives like ‘Make in India.’ It becomes necessary as in the past, the country had been led into an economy of jobless growth.

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

By Aishwarya Jain

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
