After the successful five years of the Chief Minister’s Good Governance Associates (CMGGA) Programme, the Haryana Government has announced a call for applications for the sixth cohort of programme commencing July 26.
The CMGGA programme is a strategic collaboration between Ashoka University and Haryana Government since 2016 to leverage the energy, creativity and skill of the youth to work on state priorities and push good governance, said an official spokesman.
The 25 selected candidates would be placed across 22 districts of Haryana and would be directly working with the Deputy Commissioner and administration to streamline the system and provide innovative solutions to revamp existing structures for increased productivity and enhanced citizen delivery, he said.
In 2016, Chief Minister Manohar Lal had envisioned engaging passionate youth with out-of-the-box thinking, and get on-ground data and direct feedback from citizens themselves improving public service delivery.
The CMGGAs over the last five years worked on multiple cross-cutting issues, right from transport, education, health, and nutrition, public service delivery, sanitation and COVID management to name a few, strengthening flagship schemes like Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Antyodaya Saral, eOffice, etc. across Haryana and also, innovating pilots to tackle some of the most pressing issues in their district under the leadership of their respective Deputy Commissioners, the spokesman said.
He further said that the new batch will get an opportunity to work on new and current flagship programs under education, health and nutrition, women safety, and public service delivery in Haryana.
A total of 120 associates from the last five years have made a tangible impact in Haryana across multiple domains, he added.
