Jammu, Jan 21 (IANS): The good governance index for 20 districts of Jammu and Kashmir will be released on Saturday by Union Home Minister Amit Shah, making J&K the first Union Territory to have an index of this kind in the country.

Official sources said Union Minister of State for PMO, Jitendra Singh, will also address the event on Saturday. The event is being organised jointly by the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG) and J&K Institute of Management, Public Administration and Rural Development (IMPA) in association with the Centre for Good Governance, Hyderabad.
