Our Model

We are a mission-driven governance consulting firm. We firmly believe in governance being the primary lever of change to create large scale impact in the country. We work with the senior political and bureaucratic leadership of states to solve governance problems at scale. From the time we are approached with a problem statement, we cowork with the government to diagnose the challenge, design a transformation roadmap and implement the same. The solutions we develop are rooted in the realities of governance in India. All our engagements are typically two-three year-long systemic transformation programmes.

Our Approach

We combine a top-down management consulting approach for problem structuring with a bottom-up understanding of the governance ecosystem for designing solutions, while leveraging data and technology to enable implementation of our solutions, with the objective of making governments accountable and deliver with minimum delays and maximum efficiency.

CMGGA
Overview
The Chief Minister’s Good Governance Associates (CMGGA) Programme is a partnership between the Government of Haryana and Ashoka University, designed and managed by Samagra. Designed as an experiential programme, CMGGA aims to recruit young men and women to work with the district administrations in Haryana as representatives of the Chief Minister of the state. Associates are posted in each of the 22 districts of Haryana for a 12-month period where they represent the Chief Minister’s Office and work closely with the Deputy Commissioner and other district officials. Through the period of their engagement, the Associates interact periodically with the Chief Minister to present the work done and assist in the decision-making process at the highest levels of government at the state.
Digital Haryana Cell
Overview
Digital Haryana is an initiative of the Chief Minister's Office of Haryana, in collaboration with Samagra and HeroMotoCorp to design and implement the digital roadmap of the state. This is an effort by the state to change the speed and efficiency with which the government operates as well as increase transparency and accountability within the system.
Saksham Haryana - Education
Overview
How does a state go about transforming its entire education system? This was precisely the goal the Government of Haryana set for itself in 2017, when it launched Saksham Haryana, its flagship programme aimed at improving the quality of education in the state and making 80% of government school students in elementary classes grade-competent, or Saksham. Samagra’s Saksham Haryana-Education team works with the Chief Minister’s Office and the Department of Education to design and implement state-wide interventions to translate this vision into tangible results. The first phase of this engagement concluded in May 2019, with 86% of students in classes 3,5 and 7 declared grade-level competent in Hindi and Math. The next wave is focused on sustaining the Saksham status of students across Grades 3 to 8 in all 119 blocks in Haryana as well as improving the quality of education in secondary classes.
Samarth
Overview
Samarth is the Government of Himachal Pradesh’s flagship programme focused on improving the learning levels of students in government schools by systemically transforming the state’s education system. The Samarth engagement aspires to improve learning levels of students by 8-10 percentage points, making at least 75% of students across elementary grades grade-level competent and establishing Himachal as one of the top 3 states in the National Achievement Survey.
Antyodaya Saral
Overview
Imagine a citizen seeking information on or wanting to apply to a government service or scheme. One immediately pictures a confused citizen waiting in a long line at a government office unsure of process or progress. It is to change precisely this perception that the Government of Haryana decided to develop an online public service delivery platform, Antyodaya Saral, that would redefine citizen-government interaction in the state.
Saksham Haryana - Skills & Employment
Overview
One of the biggest challenges facing our country is generating employment for its burgeoning workforce. To make its youth job-ready and able contributors to the economy, the Government of Haryana launched the Saksham Haryana-Skills and Employment programme to increase employment opportunities in the state and improve the quality of skilling. Samagra’s Saksham Haryana-Skills and Employment team works with the the Department of Employment and Department of Skill Development and Industrial Training to systemically transform the state’s employment and skilling domain.
Skill India
Overview
In 2019, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) released its Vision 2025 document. This was an effort towards outlining a forward-looking vision that lays out the strategic priorities for the Ministry in the coming five years, corresponding opportunity areas and a framework to help prioritise them. Samagra’s Skill India team is working with MSDE to convert this vision into an action plan for implementation. The strategic priorities of the Ministry over the next five years are improving the delivery of skill training in existing institutions, promoting apprenticeship as an essential part of skilling, integrating general and vocational education, catalyzing demand for formal skilling and entrepreneurship, converging skilling schemes across ministries and assuring quality through effective regulation and governance.
Tech@Samagra
Overview
Today, technology has become the backbone for driving large scale systemic governance reforms. Through our deep experience of working closely with the administrative and political leadership in the state we have observed that all governments are anxious to build or use technology applications to streamline governance functions. However, often during implementation of these projects nuanced understanding of governance technology life cycle, end user focus,and post deployment sustainability of products is not considered adequately. At Samagra, we envisage a future where citizens are active contributors and equal participants in enabling technology enabled governance reforms. To enable this change we at Samagra are following a lego block approach to build scalable and reusable opensource technology products for and collaboratively with the governments.
