PRAGATI: Modi's ambitious multi-purpose platform to address common man's grievances
New Delhi, March 26: In an attempt to make public grievances redressal process more effective and efficient, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched his ambitious multi-purpose and multi-modal platform, ‘PRAGATI'.
PRAGATI (Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation) a unique integrating and interactive platform is aimed at addressing common man's grievances, says Zee News report. It will also monitor and review important programmes and projects of the government.

The departments listed under the category of corruption are telecom, railways, department of financial services, ministry of power, petroleum, heavy industries, urban development, road transport, rural development.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the whole world is keenly observing India now. It is high time to make governance more efficient and effective. He said PRAGATI is a step in this direction.
PRAGATI, designed in-house by the PMO team with the help of National Informatics Center (NIC), is a three tier (PMO, union government secretaries and chief secretaries of states) application.
Here, the Prime Minister will interact with bureaucrats on a monthly basis - it will be held once in every month on fourth Wednesday at 3.30 PM-to be known as PRAGATI Day, says the report.
