Chandigarh Administration has instituted a consultative process, as broad based as possible, involving people with varied expertise and experience in specialized subjects in public affairs so that aspirations of all sections of the society are reflected in governmental decisions. These initiatives have successfully given a sense of participation to citizens in decision making processes making them seamless and transparent.
Such initiatives include constitution of :
- Administrator's Advisory Council
- Administrator's Advisory Council - Standing Committees
- Environmental Committee on Preservation of ecology of Sukhna Lake
These committees are in addition to the citizens participation in decision making of Municipal Corporation, Chandigarh, where the representatives of people are elected to the General House, which is the main decision making body under the Local Government.
