It is worth noting that in the My Government program, there is a provision to find out how the person who comes to the government office has been treated by phone call or whether immediate steps are being taken to solve his problem or not. This program started on October 2, 2019.
The Chief Minister reviewed it on May 28 last year. Departments of Revenue and Disaster Management, Panchayatiraj and Drinking Water, Housing and Urban Development, Mission Energy and Health and Family Welfare were reviewed today.
According to the information in the meeting, 263 services of 31 departments of the state government have come under Mo Sarkar. A total of 3.77 crore feedback have been collected till date.

More than 99 percent of the opinion is said to be favorable. Similarly in private hospitals 98 percent feedback is good. This feedback has been taken up especially in Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana. It is reported that there has been improvement in the work of the Department of Housing and Development.
The review revealed that 96 percent of Panchayatiraj and Drinking Water Department, 98 percent of Revenue Department, 92 percent of Housing and Urban Development Department received excellent feedback.
