'Corruption' is unhealthy and unwanted part of the service delivery system which affects the development of the Nation, with poor values and image. The Nation has got resources to cater the needs of the people but not their greed. The greed of a smaller group affects the health and wealth of a larger population. Corruption associated with the generation of black money acts as barrier of development and further results for the marginalization, including isolation, of a larger population struggling for even critical needs under the pressure of violation, crime, hazards and disasters. The service delivery systems of the Government are mostly dominated with top down approaches and thus limit its reach to the targeted groups. Accepting all such challenges as opportunities, gives scope to search for innovative and creative systems. The mission of Digital India supported by Clean India and Make India opens gates for technological revolution with better connectivity, accountability and transparency. The models presented clearly reflect the advantages of moving towards healthy and transparent environments at all the levels. CSOs have got a key role to work with Government and Private agencies on partnership basis with better monitoring and evaluations including social auditing. The need based bottom up approaches with community initiatives minimizes the limitations of top down approaches and further supports the development with better transparency, sustainability and quality. The resultant environments are healthy, friendly, accessible, affordable, accountable, participatory, responsive, transparent and empowered, and improve the reach to people both quantitatively and qualitatively better. It is the power and commitment of the people to create a healthy and wealthy living with improved quality of life.

Abstract


'Corruption' is unhealthy and unwanted part of the service delivery system which affects the development of the Nation, with poor values and image. The Nation has got resources to cater the needs of the people but not their greed. The greed of a smaller group affects the health and wealth of a larger population. Corruption associated with the generation of black money acts as barrier of development and further results for the marginalization, including isolation, of a larger population struggling for even critical needs under the pressure of violation, crime, hazards and disasters. The service delivery systems of the Government are mostly dominated with top down approaches and thus limit its reach to the targeted groups. Accepting all such challenges as opportunities, gives scope to search for innovative and creative systems. The mission of Digital India supported by Clean India and Make India opens gates for technological revolution with better connectivity, accountability and transparency. The models presented clearly reflect the advantages of moving towards healthy and transparent environments at all the levels. CSOs have got a key role to work with Government and Private agencies on partnership basis with better monitoring and evaluations including social auditing. The need based bottom up approaches with community initiatives minimizes the limitations of top down approaches and further supports the development with better transparency, sustainability and quality. The resultant environments are healthy, friendly, accessible, affordable, accountable, participatory, responsive, transparent and empowered, and improve the reach to people both quantitatively and qualitatively better. It is the power and commitment of the people to create a healthy and wealthy living with improved quality of life.
