A voluntary citizens’ initiative emerged in 1990-91 as a forum for discussion and action on issues impacting Bangalore, its development and future. The initiative became a registered non-profit charitable trust, Citizens’ Voluntary Initiative for the City of Bgalore (CIVIC Bangalore), in 1992. Realising decentralisation in the urban context, through the implementation of the 74th CAA, has been our aim. Our aim has not been to supplement or supplant government services but to make the government deliver on its promises to the people. We have worked with the state and local governments and the general public, advocating for the desired changes. By focusing on democracy, decentralization and public participation, our activities promote good governance, inclusiveness, and improvement of service delivery. CIVIC has come up with new edition brochure.
