New Delhi, July 25: There has been nearly a five-fold increase in the number of public grievances received online during 2014 to 2017, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said on Wednesday.
A total of 2,70,413 grievances were received on the Centralized Public Grievance Redress and Monitoring System (CPGRAMS) in 2014 as against 14,17,891 last year, he said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha.

"There has been about a five-fold increase in the number of grievances in CPGRAMS from 2014 to 2017. The rate of disposal has also kept pace with the number of grievances received during the period.
High rate of disposal has been achieved as the government has taken all possible steps to put in place a strong redressal mechanism," Singh said.
