Indian government abolishes all GoMs, EGoMs for accountability in governance

New Delhi/may 31
In a major move to empower all the Ministries and Departments, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday decided to abolish all the existing nine Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoMs) and twenty-one Groups of Ministers (GoMs) which would expedite the process of decision-making and usher in greater accountability in the system.
An Indian government spokesperson said that the Ministries and Departments will now process the issues pending before the EGoMs and GoMs and take appropriate decisions at the level of Ministries and Departments itself.
“Wherever the Ministries face any difficulties, the Cabinet Secretariat and the Prime Minister’s Office will facilitate the decision-making process,” he added.
