Good Governance Index (GGI) Background

The Good Governance Index was conceptualized under the first term of the Modi government after the Sectoral Group of Secretaries on Governance recommended developing an index to gauge the performance of states. This GGI index aims to realize the PM Modi’s vision of “maximum governance, minimum government”. GGI has been developed as a tool to help states make informed policy decisions and bring a targeted approach to achieve maximum good governance.

Good Governance Index through 10 sectors and 50 indicators, measures delivery of “good governance” to citizens by way of delivery of essential services to citizens. These services includes education, healthcare, economic growth, environmental protection, access to legal protection and judicial services. Furthermore, sector wise assessment of states shows the finer print of India’s governance story and where each state may need to focus more.
