Delhi HC issues notice to ministries for Citizen Charter in every department


New Delhi, May 23: The Delhi High Court has issued notices to Ministry of Law and Ministry of Parliament Affairs to provide a Citizen Charter in every department.

While responding to a plea filed by advocate and BJP leader Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, the HC asked ministries to ensure time bound delivery of goods and services and redressal of citizen's grievances in a specific time limit.

Notice issued for Citizen Charter

The ministries also asked to implement United Nations Convention Against Corruption dated 31-10-2003 and 'Sense of the House' Resolution dated 27-08-2011 in letter and spirit. Next date of hearing is 10th August 2016.

India ranked 76th in Corruption Perceptions Index of the Transparency International. Implementation of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption 31-10-2003 and Sense of House Resolution 27-08-2011 is necessary to curb the corruption but Executive failed to discharge this duty, hence this writ petition, totally bona-fide and purely in larger public interest.
