    Decentralize 602 Districts in India into States.


    This is not directly related to RTI.
    But still relevant for good governance in India.

    A Member of Parliament (MP) cannot productively work or serve his/her constituents for more than 2000 hours per year.

    Hence I suggest Government decentralize 602 Districts in India into States or Cantons as in Switzerland.
    Cantons of Switzerland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Each State or Canton should not govern more than 2 million citizens.

    Forget about MP's.
    The Times of India recently reported that each MLA in Delhi Assembly costs the taxpayer Rs 40,000 per month and works only 10 minutes a day or 60 Hrs a year !

    Delhi MLAs get Rs 40k for 10-min workday-Delhi-Cities-The Times of India

    The honorable MLA's were so incensed that they have summoned the TOI Editor and Reporter and threatened to send them to jail !
