DGGI Puducherry: Good Governance is very important factor in promoting a holistic development. District being a basic unit of field administration and governance, implementing various programmes and innovative projects for the well-being of citizens, measuring their performance becomes important for proper assessment and planning which will lead to the development of the Puducherry District and the region as a whole. The District Good Governance Index (DGGI) is aimed to assess the state of governance in Puducherry based on certain Sectors and selected Indicators. It will enable ranking of District and present a comparative picture. The ranking would bring about healthy competition amongst District in the quest to provide citizen centric administration and governance. This DGGI is expected to provide guidance to the UT & District Administration of Puducherry. U.T. and other stakeholders in their efforts to address existing gaps, plan to bridge these gaps and aid as decision making tool. DGGI is modeled on the Good Governance Index (GGI) 2022 with revision in the indicators to make it more region specific, assessing the ground reality and meeting the aspiration of the people.
