Sevottam 20Empowering and Connecting India
PricewaterhouseCoopers Civil Servant citizen “How do we connect policy with operations?” politician “We sometimes assume that policies will implement themselves.” “The civil service requires a better delivery culture.”
The Quality Management System (QMS) developed by the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances, Government of India, is called SEVOTTAM The term is a combination of two Hindi words – ‘Uttam’ + ‘Seva’= Sevottam It is backed by an Indian Standard IS :2005 that was especially created for certifying achievement of excellence in service delivery in the government service sector Quality Management System called Sevottam framework aims at filling these gaps through a simple process
Sevottam seeks excellence by focusing on Quality Standards based Public Service Delivery only
Uncertainty is sought to be removed through published standards Government’s services delivery should not be a game of dice - Citizen’s should know what to expect ? how much to expect? from whom ? when ? And where?
1. Citizen’s Charter – that specifies and publishes the standards of service delivery 2. The Grievance Redress Mechanism that process complaints from citizens when standards in Citizen’s Charter are not met in the service delivery 3. Capacity Building for service delivery to bring improvements on a continuous basis The QMS Sevottam framework provides the answer through three modules that help to identify Gaps in Service Delivery
PricewaterhouseCoopers The Three Modules of QMS Sevottam Framework
PricewaterhouseCoopers Simple Seven Steps that cover the entire QMS Sevottam framework
The 12th Plan will also focus on quality monitoring, maximizing customer satisfaction, transparency in all processes and improved service delivery. Hence Sevottam, an initiative for improvement of service delivery developed by Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances will be implemented in 832 Head Post Offices. This is expected, in addition to monitoring of service delivery under Project Arrow and Mail Network Optimisation Programme to significantly improve service delivery performance and thereby lead to customer satisfaction and expansion of customer base for Department of Posts.
