The DARPG has a public grievance portal.For 94 central government ministries and departments citizens can write in with their complaints The awareness that this portal exists is evidently increasing There were 132751 complaints between May 2014 and September 2014 Between May 2015 and September 2015 that number increased to 466406 In gauging citizen evaluation of the Union government this database can be used with three sampling biases First not everyone knows this portal exists Second citizens write in when there is a grievance A satisfied citizen doesn’t necessarily bother Third everyone doesn’t have access to the internet nor does everyone with a grievance write in Data analysed was for a longer period — January 2012 to September 2015 Seventy-three per cent of the grievances concerned just 20 ministries/departments In descending order of importance they are: Department of telecom the Railways financial services home ministry central board of direct taxes higher education ministry of external affairs department of posts health & family welfare petroleum & natural gas labour & employment defence school education & literacy personnel and training road transport & highways urban development department of justice central board of excise and customs department of revenue and the department of ex-servicemen welfare Let’s pick one of these to see what the analysis tells us The one department most people will readily relate to is possibly the Railways During the period mentioned there were 19540 grievances against the Railways Let’s slice it further to see what sub-departments within the Railways attracted the most grievances (Railways is actually a bad example to think in terms of sub-departments since functionally it is driven by 17 zones) Seventy-one per cent of the complaints were against zonal railways 8 per cent against the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation and 5 per cent on passenger marketing issues An even better idea is not to look at sub-departments but focus on the reasons for grievance What service deficiency led to the grievance You then find that 45 per cent grievances were about the inefficiency in the refund process 34 per cent were about the delays in pension release 7 per cent about the quality of service onboard trains 2 per cent for unclean stations and 1 per cent for congestion on the IRCTC website Inefficiency in the refund process can be further disaggregated: For the period 170000 passenger refunds were pending with the average delay being 2-4 months There may be a straightforward reason for the delay in refunds For instance in the context of delayed or cancelled trains the charting may not be linked with the passenger reservation system and there is a delay in getting the information on train departures Alternatively the refund claim may be challenged because there is no evidence of a passenger not having travelled and because a refund receipt has not been collected from travelling ticket examiner In essence one ticket checking is a manual process; two there aren’t enough TTEs; three when trains are cancelled/delayed charting information isn’t immediately fed into the PRS; four passengers don’t collect refund notes from TTEs; and five the verification system isn’t robust With this identification solutions also suggest themselves One give hand-held devices to TTEs so that there is an electronic record of passengers actually travelling; two introduce bar-coded tickets irrespective of whether they are issued through counters or over the internet (they can even be delivered as bar-codes to phones); three tickets should be activated on the day of the travel; four dashboards should display empty seats; and five integrated charting and PRS systems for refunds when trains are cancelled/delayed My intention is not to explore any of these and it is true that these problems are typically encountered by passengers who travel reserved — that’s roughly 5 per cent of the total passengers After all those were citizens who usually used the grievance redress system It is also true that some of these solutions have already been introduced by the Railways on a pilot basis Where the Railways haven’t done much as yet is on soft skills like training of TTEs However this kind of analysis is useful precisely because it enables the central government ministries/departments to take corrective action In the list of the top-20 ministries/departments the Railways is second Number one is the department of telecommunications (DoT) Ostensibly these grievances are about the DoT As is perhaps natural grievances are mostly about service providers not quite the DoT proper Therefore inevitably having analysed grievances there is not much the DoT can do except track and redirect complaints better Corrective action is quite different from that for the Railways That’s true for financial services as well since most complaints are about banks All the reports in the public domain I recommend you read them all Despite obvious sampling biases one could use these as rough indicators of how citizens perceive the government (at least the Union government) and to track improvements over time Interpreted thus priorities are telecom the Railways banking home ministry income taxes and higher education Improvements in these will improve citizen perceptions substantially I hope the next round of reports is done soon The analysis has been done by the Quality Council of India The writer is member NITI Aayog Views are personal For all the latest
