National Centre for Good Governance
Feb 26, 2014

The National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG), an apex think tank of the country in guiding and implementing good Governance reforms inaugurated on 24 February in New Delhi. After extensive discussions with large number of stakeholders, Government has set up National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG) by upgrading National Institute of Administrative Research, Mussorrie and renaming it as NCGG with an expanded mandate.

India is committed to provide Institutional framework to improve governance and ensure that fruits of development reach the poorest of the poor. The focus of the NCGG would be action oriented research in good Governance. The Centre would also function as a National Repository on information on best practices, initiatives and methodologies that promote good governance, e-Governance initiatives, change management and capacity building within the Government.

Good governance is responsive to the present and future needs of the organization, exercises prudence in policy-setting and decision-making. The best interests of all stakeholders are taken into account and Governance typically involves well-intentioned people who bring their ideas, experiences, preferences and other human strengths and shortcomings to the policy-making. Good governance is achieved through an on-going discourse that attempts to capture all of the considerations involved in assuring that stakeholder interests are addressed and reflected in policy initiatives.

The NCGG would work towards resolution of key issues in Governance, analyse policy and programme implementation, develop action plans, support governance reforms and help in developing synergy across various sectors and Ministries/Departments. The expected outcome of the NCGG would be in the form of research papers, best practices on Governance reforms, policy analysis and options would provide the necessary direction, guidance and capacity building inputs on Governance and management issues to the Central and State Government organisations, Central Training Institutes and State Administrative Training Institutes. 

A Governing Body with Cabinet Secretary as the Chairman has been constituted for NCGG. The affairs of the Society shall be managed under the overall superintendence, direction and control of the Governing Body. NCGG will also have a 12 members Management Committee with Secretary (DOPT) as the Chairperson. NCGG will have a 3-tier structure. The first tier will consist of the internal Faculty and Staff, the second of outside domestic experts and the third of international consultants.
