Citizens' Report on Governance and Development 2010

First Edition


January 2011 | 172 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd

Every year, the Citizens' Report on Governance and Development examines the performance of the institutions of governance—Parliament, Judiciary, Policy and the Local Self Governments—through the lenses of fundamental economic and social values such as rights, development, freedom and security.

The 2010 report includes evaluation of the working of Parliament in terms of the issues of representation and accountability, and examination of the role and consequences of the Union's public policy and its effects on the lives of the people. In addition, issues of judiciary—confrontation with the executive, pendency of cases, probity of judges and persisting vacancies at all levels—have been qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed.

Prepared by civil society and academicians, the report presents a holistic picture of the status of governance and democracy in India. It seeks to fill a significant policy gap existing between the institutions of governance and the actual process of governance by intervening at the institutional level. The report examines the sensitivity, efficiency and efficacy of the institutions of governance in ensuring rights and delivering public services.
