"For the people, of the people, by the people" Our country being a democratic and a Welfare state revolves around people. Government takes many decision keeping in mind. It formulates policies/programmes for the welfare of its people. Though planning is perfect keeping in mind the immediate needs of the people. There is huge gap in which WE the people still do not play a vital role. So there needs to be a check! Social accountability and responsibility is the need of the hour. Government is facing an ever growing demand to be more accountable and socially responsible and the people are becoming more conscious about their rights to be informed and to influence Government decision making. The concept of Social audit is very much the need of the hour. Hence the first module focuses on the following: • Develop a perspective on audits in general • Understand relevance of social audit • Understand different types of audits including social audit.
Best of luck for the module.
