GOOD GOVERNANCE INDEX
Good Governance Index has been prepared by Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
- GGI is a uniform tool that will help in assessing the status of governance and the impact of interventions undertaken by governments across all states and UTs.
The objectives of GGI are
- Provide quantifiable data to compare the state of governance in all states and UTs,
- Enable states and UTs to formulate and implement suitable strategies for improving governance and
- Shift to result oriented approaches and administration
GGI will consider 10 sectors:
- Agriculture and allied sectors,
- Commerce and industries,
- Human resource development,
- Public health,
- Public infrastructure and utilities,
- Economic governance,
- Social welfare and development,
- Judicial & public security,
- Environment, and
- Citizen-centric governance.
These sectors will be assessed on the basis of over 50 indicators, which have been assigned different weights. Scores will be summed up to reach composite scores.
For instance, Performance under the sector of judicial and public security will be judged by indicators including conviction rate, availability of police personnel, and the proportion of women police personnel.

- big states,
