Amendment to Representation of People Act, 1951
Democracy is fully effective and efficient only if its legislature truly represents its people. For that to happen, it needs to be available and accessible to its stake holders. However, in reality, the elected/nominated representative, are hardly reachable to their people in the respective constituency offices. One of the reason behind this is the legislation - Amendment to Representation of People Act, 1951, that makes it possible for such representatives to get away scot-free. A plethora of reforms are required to make this legislation tighten the obligations of the representatives, some of which are listed below

  • A more robust eligibility criteria for candidates to contest elections
  • More stringent qualification criteria for a candidate to contest elections from a certain constituency - such as the duration of his/her residence in such constituency and acquaintance with the electorate and
  • Availability and attendance to the constituency office
  • Managing appointment system
  • Periodical audits on public interaction, initiatives, grievance redress, expenditure, documentation etc
  • Performance evaluation system
Professionals Cell has been working on a proposal to be sent to the authorities concerned to incorporate the above Kaizens into the legislation
