Abstract

The public and social organisations increasingly demand clarity and liability in most civil matters. It is hence ethically necessary to develop an institutional structure and a system towards sustainable transparency and accountability. Social Audit is a public assembly where all the details of a project are scrutinized. It is a way of measuring, understanding and reporting an organization’s societal and moral performance. It provides the most significant link between oral and written validation. Social Audits facilitate a transparent control and monitoring mechanism and offer a means of securing accountability of the stakeholders of public sector programmes. The various stakeholders taking part in such audits are representatives from government organisations, non-governmental organisations, the public and their elected representatives.

Keywords: Social Audit, Panchayat Raj, Gram Sabha, Community Organisation
