The Government of India has introduced various programmes for the welfare of the rural masses through the local bodies or Grama Panchayats. However, due to deep rooted corruption, lack of transparency and accountability in the administration, lack of awareness on the part of the people these benefits rarely reach the rural poor. Hence this project is designed to make the common people aware on their right to seek accountability which will ultimately lead to Good Governance.
Empowerment through awareness on Right to seek accountability leading to Good Governance.
