Accountability Initiative

India’s financial investment to provide basic public services has increased substantially, but state capacity to deliver these services is undermined by absenteeism, inefficiency, and corruption. Systematic failures of accountability lie at the heart of the problem.

The Accountability Initiative (AI) promotes accountability for service delivery by developing innovative models for tracking government programs, disseminating this information to policy makers and citizens, and researching how to strengthen accountability for improved service delivery in India.
