We are still a developing nation and are yet to enter the elite group of developed nations. Our requirements and way to achieve an end to our needs are different from western nations.

Since most of the services in this part of the world are offered by the government itself it becomes all the more important at times that such services are provided on time with an aim that they should benefit a common man who is dependent on these services.

However, over the past many decades many such services were being not implemented by the zeal and gusto that people would have appreciated the effort. Certain discrepancies crept in which caused lot of issues and the governments had to think about ensuring good governance practices so that the benefit percolates down to the needy and the destitute.

It was here that the concept of good governance came into being. Good governance is the process of how public institutions conduct public affairs and manage public resources and guarantee the realization of human rights in a manner essentially free of abuse and corruption and with due regard for the rule of law. It is the power exercised for the management of a country’s economic and social resources for development.

The concept of Good Governance mainly revolves on the concept of responsibility of governments and governing bodies to meet the necessities of the masses as opposed to select groups in the society. Participation, Rule of Law, Transparency, Responsiveness, Consensus orientation, Equity, Effectiveness and Efficiency, Accountability and Strategic vision form the core of good governance.

Good governance is of utmost significance in local governments. It tries to increase engagement between local government and common citizens in order to get the best alternatives that serve the people. Three institutions can be reformed to promote good governance: the state, private sector and civil society. It generates an environment which fosters strong and equitable development and it is also essential for sound economic policies.

In the recent years, such practices are being seen implemented in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the administration not only tries to reach out to the masses using good governance initiatives but a feedback is also being sought so that any misgivings are removed.

Several remarkable initiatives have been launched by the government under Good Governance initiative and these measures have won laurels owing to the fact that the government connected to the grass root level by involving people directly.
