Integrated efforts of all government and non-government entities concerned can be the best way of ensuring good governance in public service deliveries.

So, all the authorities concerned should come forward and work together to supplement the government endeavors.

The views were expressed at a stakeholders meeting on establishing good governance hosted by the Commissioner Office of Rajshahi division at its conference hall today.

Giving an illustration of the present government’s achievements in various development sectors Commissioner Zafarullah said the government has been implementing diversified programmes to establish good governance in the service delivery activities.

He said there are five good governance tools related to National Integrality Strategy (NIS), Right to Information (RTI), Citizen Charter, Grievance Redress System (GRS) and Annual Performance Agreement (APA).

In addition infusing dynamism into the public services, transparency and accountability are being ensured in the services, including recruitment in government jobs, benefiting the service-recipients as a whole.

The use of NIS tool has started to make the public service deliveries vibrant because it has brought a new dimension as a result of engaging the people in the service delivery process.
