The government of the State of Punjab, India has created a Citizen Feedback Model that “aims to fight petty corruption, improve service delivery, and facilitate citizen engagement by proactively seeking, through SMS and calls, feedback of citizens who receive day-to-day government services.” The program works by first collecting contact information from citizens when they receive government services. The government then contacts some of the citizens to solicit feedback on the quality of the service. The project is now receiving support from the World Bank and has been featured by the Associated Press. ,
