Good Governance Index (GGI) is a tool to determine the status of governance in the country. It helps
to assess the impact of various governance interventions taken up by the State/ UT.
About UP- DGGI
Uttar Pradesh- District Good Governance Index (UP - DGGI) has been collaboratively prepared by replicating the learnings from GGI. The index is unique to the state and encompasses administrative, economic, social, environmental, legal as well as other relevant governance verticals of the state.
DGGI provides a relevant framework to measure how well the District Administration functions and
delivers the outcomes that are expected from its governance. It additionally, helps identify the
impact of various governance initiatives at district level and provides a futuristic roadmap for
improving district level governance with targeted interventions.
