“Minimum Government,Maximum Governance” this is not only a slogan but it is a mechanism for a successful democratic government to operate. It means the delivery of people oriented schemes to the ground level with maximum efficiency and transparency coupled with minimum hurdles and roadblocks.The BJP led NDA aka “intolerant saffron government” has been quite successful in putting a transparent mechanism in providing people-friendly governance so far.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a revamped version of Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan has been able to bring a behavioural change in the mindset of people and society. They have understood the importance of clean environment and society and have become very active in ensuring the cleansing of the places where they reside. To put the onus on municipalities and to secure their friendly attitude towards waste management,the government has introduced a “Swachh Bharat Ranking” to rank the individual cities on the basis of their waste management. It acts as an incentive to push the state government and municipalities to do better in waste management in order to achieve a good rank.

Make In India,the programme that seeks to increase the share of GDP through manufacturing up to 25 percent by 2022 could be a real game-changer in the context of Indian Economy. It will generate employment, boost export and most importantly will lead to industrial development which is the traditional pre-requisite for any successful economic transition to happen. The dashboards recently unveiled to monitor the progress of Make In India and the ranking of states on basis of EODB will further fuel the development of transparent conducive environment for doing business.

One of the very important policy agenda of this government has been the rural electrification programme via Deen Dayal Updhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana.The basic motto of DDUGJY is the feeder separation of agriculture and non-agriculture feeders and strengthening of transmission and distribution network. Rural Electrification has the potential of transforming village economy and society and will be the main tool in ensuring the success of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Rurban Mission (Smart Village Concept). The creation of GVA (Grameen Vidyutikaran Abhiyan) app gives the data about the amount of electrification done and lists the villages yet unelectrified. This constantly acts as a pressure for the concerned agencies to yield result in a time bounded manner.

SAGY is another scheme oriented towards development of villages through augmentation of fund at the village level itself. The thrust is on making the model villages in a way that the development mechanism could be copied by other villages as well. “Samanvay” web portal has been developed for effective monitoring of the scheme. Steering committees at state and central level have been created as well, for assessment of the scheme. SAGY,DUGJY,SPMRB,PKSY are some of the schemes that can perpetually transform the fate of rural India, if implemented extensively.

We strictly need to move beyond “Scheme Raj” and try to implement the schemes effectively at the ground level rather than announcing new schemes every other day. The government should merge the schemes and policies that deal with similar developmental prospects to ensure abandoning of resource wastage through multiple channels. The government should work out every possible way to reach out with opposition parties to push forward the pending development legislations in the Rajya Sabha. If the “intolerant saffron” government is successful in bringing about reforms through legislations as well, it could be an unprecedented development transformation in the 7 decades of free India.
