Right to Service Bill 2011

Right to Service Bill 2011
The Government of Bihar (GoB) launched the "Bihar Prashasnik Sudhar Mission" (BPSM) with the overall objective of transforming the Governance of the State. The Department for International Development (DFID) is financing the administration of BPSM and is also providing resources to help Govt. of Bihar implement administrative reforms, modernise administrative processes, strengthen human resource m...anagement and increase accountability under the Bihar Governance and Administrative Reforms Programme (BGARP).

In a bid to weed out corruption from the grassroots level, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said he will bring the Right to Service Bill during the Budget session."The proposed Act, besides the RTI Act, will be an important tool in the hands of the people. We have been receiving numerous complaints regarding obtaining income tax and other kinds of certificates, depositing bills and other utility related services," said Nitish.
The government has asked bureaucrats to prepare a draft of the proposed bill that seeks to make it mandatory for the state government and its agencies to extend services to people within the stipulated timeframe failing which the officials concerned could be penalised.
