India has got sufficient resources to cater the needs of its people but not their greed. The unethical business oriented development has brought the development of selected people by pushing majority of the population to marginalization, with deepened poverty and vulnerabilities.

There exist several villages without water but not without wine which reflects the concern and commitment of the delivery system. The search for need based solutions ends at Social Auditing which improves the participation, accountability and transparency in utilizing the resources with improved availability, accessibility and affordability. Social Auditing of selected Civil Society Originations has improved the service delivery channel with the model of designing, implementation, monitoring and evolution both internal as well as external environment. As companies are well linked with Government, Private, Corporate and Funding Agencies, the process has resulted for significant impact with change in the management of the resources with innovation.

Abstract


India has got sufficient resources to cater the needs of its people but not their greed. The unethical business oriented development has brought the development of selected people by pushing majority of the population to marginalization, with deepened poverty and vulnerabilities. Continuation of such processes has affected the health and wealth of the people and environment with poor participation, accessibility, affordability, accountability, transparency, sustainability and quality of life. In spite of having sufficient resources matching to the needs of the people, still the Nation is facing barriers to move from developing to developed countries which is alarming the stakeholders to search for people oriented solutions. There exist several villages without water but not without wine which reflects the concern and commitment of the delivery system. The search for need based solutions ends at Social Auditing which improves the participation, accountability and transparency in utilizing the resources with improved availability, accessibility and affordability. Social Auditing of selected Civil Society Originations has improved the service delivery channel with the model of designing, implementation, monitoring and evolution both internal as well as external environment. As companies are well linked with Government, Private, Corporate and Funding Agencies, the process has resulted for significant impact with change in the management of the resources with innovation. The tool is simple, participative, flexible and should be made mandatory to all the departments and service providers with better participation.
