Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s unconventional approach might give his detractors a chance to say that nothing is visible on ground but the fact is that the PM has changed grammar of governance and administration. They may be right while citing dozens of pending appointments (in CIC, CVC, CBEC, CBDT, HRD etc) and ever increasing centralisation in appointments and decision making. Moreover, Modi also dismantled GOMs and EGOMs. All this has made a perception of ‘Modifying’ many things. It might be called an HR issue but amidst all this a new approach of governance and administration is evolving like never before. Some erratic decisions on Home & Foreign Secretary and DRDO chief also are not unknown.

The Modi government has not only conceived over a dozens of new ideas but institutions like Planning Commission is replaced with NITI Aayog. From his capital intensive ‘Make in India’, Jan Dhan Yojna, Namami Gange, Swakshya Bharat Abhiyan, Shram Shakti Yojna, special attention on foreign policy, overhauling Railways and defense procurement. Conceiving ideas and implementing is a big deal, but the PM has set a new benchmark for the governance with a short span of time.
