The Chief Minister while upholding the spirit of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya’s Antyodaya philosophy has not only started several welfare schemes for the Antyodaya families but also ensured complete transparency in their disbursal to those at the bottom of the pyramid.
Whether it is about providing self-employment opportunities to such families via Mukhyamantri Antyodaya Parivar Utthan Yojana (MMAPUY) or giving government jobs on a merit basis, Sh. Manohar Lal has time and again reiterated his commitment to uplifting the poorest of the poor.
The Chief Minister started Jan Samvad programme aimed at bringing the government to the doorsteps to serve the people of the State in a better way. Along with the Chief Minister, his Administrative Wing is also ensuring on the spot redressal of most of the complaints.
While making a paradigm shift towards good governance, the State Government had started celebrating, December 25, the birthday of former Prime Minister, Sh. Atal Bihari Vajpayee as Good Governance Day in Haryana.
Good Governance Day reiterates the commitment of the Manohar Lal-led Government to provide a transparent and accountable administration in Haryana along with bringing a positive change in the lives of the people.
The main aim of celebrating Good Governance Day is to provide hassle-free services and ensure the benefits of various welfare schemes to every needy person and today more than 500 services of more than 40 departments have become online.

People are declaring their annual income in the PPP
The Chief Minister firmly believes that the reach of the public welfare schemes to those at the bottom of the pyramid along with ensuring timely redressal of all the problems faced by them.
The latest example of this was later seen in Rohtak when during his visit to Rohtak, a woman complained about stopping her pension because the officers concerned had declared her dead in the government documents.
Later taking strict cognizance of the said complaint, the Chief Minister not only directed the officers concerned to immediately rectify the data and restore the pension of the said beneficiary but also gave Rs. 2500 to an elderly woman from his own pocket.
The Chief Minister said that eligible persons will get the benefit of government schemes and the name of the ineligible persons will be automatically removed through PPP verification.
