We have 22 Associates presently posted in the 21 districts of the State of Haryana. They will work in tandem with the Chief Minister of Haryana and Ashoka University on improving the governance initiatives and hence impacting the lives of the citizens of the State.
The Chief Minister's Good Governance Associates (CMGGA) programme is an initiative of the State Government of
Haryana for young, promising leaders excited to work with the State machinery and who embody highest levels of
integrity, passion for development and service to others. The programme's goal is to promote understanding and
knowledge of the legislative process and principles of good governance among the young leaders of our country
and give them an opportunity to tackle some of the complexities that exist today in the State.
We need leaders who take a systems change approach to problem solving with the executive function of the State and
influence the outcomes and effect long-term transformations. These diverse young leaders will be paired with some top
civil servants within the Haryana government to take a user-centric approach to issues at the intersection of people,
processes, products, and policy.
The CMGGA is a unique and highly-competitive opportunity, during which 22 high-caliber individuals will be posted in
the 21 districts of Haryana for 12 months. They will represent the Chief Minister's office and will work in tandem
with the Deputy Commissioner and district officials.
It is a unique opportunity for young leaders who are strong collaborators, are self-aware and adaptive to get top
quality mentoring. The Associates will be in regular communication with the Chief Minister's office and will also
get avenues to discuss, disseminate and acquire skills and receive support necessary to discharge their duties.
The programme will begin with an orientation at Ashoka University that will focus on the structure of the government,
the legislative process, and the role of the civil society. Participants will be then deputed to their designated
