This is an important day not just for J-K but for entire India.”

He further said that soon other districts will have the index and a good governance competition will start in every district of the country. Shah further said that launching this index will benefit the delivery mechanism and make districts result oriented.

The District Good Governance Index has been launched for 20 districts of Jammu and Kashmir and has been prepared by the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG) in collaboration with the Union Territory’s administration.
