Recently the term good governance has been getting much coverage in news channels and newspapers. The reason behind it is the declaration of 25th December as Good Governance Day by the Indian Government. Well, even though the attention towards this term is new but the concept of governance is not recent, it has been running throughout the very veins of human civilization.

A consumer is one who makes the flow of business smooth if he is satisfied to the fullest, but if a consumer has grievances, it is the duty of the government to look after the same. Lately the Modi Government has been striving hard to work for the betterment of the consumers and make them the stronger party.
