The greatest bane suffered by citizens is that they do not receive public services within specified or reasonable time-frames.  All the running from pillar to post suffered by citizens may become  a thing of the past if the Karnataka Guarantee of Services to Citizens Bill, 2011, is passed. As many as 11 departments will render services under the Bill, which will be implemented within the next three months. The State Cabinet has decided to promulgate an ordinance to implement the Act. Delhi, Jharkhand, Bihar, Jammu & Kashmir and Madhya Pradesh have already implemented a similar legislation and Karnataka's Act is designed on the lines of the Delhi legislation.

 

The aim is to bring in transparency in administration by stipulating time-bound services to the citizens. The Bill fixes responsibility on officers at various levels to deliver the goods to the people failing which penalty will be levied. At present 90 services have been listed under 11 departments. Officials against whom there are no complaints (zero default officials) will be given incentives. A minimum of Rs 20 to a maximum of Rs 250 will be the compensatory cost  to be collected as penalty from officials who fail to comply with the rules.                            

 

Each department will have a common pool of funds to compensate the aggrieved citizen. If there is failure on the part of the system,   then the government would pay. The draft bill says that default on the time-bound delivery of citizen-related services as defined in the Act will not be considered as "misconduct" by the official as the purpose and object is to sensitise the public servant  towards the citizen and to enhance a culture of delivering time-bound services to citizens.  The programme aims to see how effective the Bill will be in fulfilling its objectives.
