Effectiveness of citizen's charter and Lokayukata in Karnataka StateKarnataka has been in news for quite sometimes over the effectiveness of Lakayukata when the Chief Minister of the State had to resign. Recently, Union Government tried to get a Bill passed on the Lok Pal and Lokayukata. It succeeded in Lok Sabha but could not conclude the issue in Rajya Sabha. Tagged with the Lok Pal issue was introduction of citizen's charter. The Union Government has decide to initiate formation of citizen's charter irrespective of Lok Pal Bill sorted out or not. This is certainly going to help the common man to force time bound action on the administration.
Some of the states have already introduced citizen's charter. I would be interested to find out if the citizen's chartered is already in force in Karanataka and also if it is under Lokayukata. How effective is its functioning to facilitate common man?
