NGO Profile :
Public Concern for Governance Trust (PCGT) was formed to ensure enactment of laws and policies, to promote honesty, transparency and accountability in governance.

Their programmes include:

  • Youth for Governance (YFG): PCGT has taken the initiative to bring youth from schools and colleges across the city on a single platform to interact and chart a course to get involved with governance issues. During FY14 they had conducted an event to reach thousands of youngsters in Mumbai city, with the message of battling corruption and promoting good governance to transform the city step-by-step. For YFG 2014, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam spoke to students and encouraged them to fight against corruption. A young group of boys gave a band performance relevant to the theme, which was ‘Youth As Corruption Busters’.
  • Right to Information (RTI):  PCGT is always alert to file applications under RTI, especially those in public interest. During FY14 they filed 35 RTI queries. All the appeals succeeded and in one important case a fine of Rs25,000/- was imposed on the PIO, MHADA, by the CIC.
  • We Remember 26/11:  After the ‘turmoil’ of 26/11 terror attacks, a unique programme is organised every year for balancing one’s mind and body, bringing ‘tranquility’ to the audience, with songs  and dancing.
  • Kuch Aur: PCGT instils moral values in school children through multi-media with interactive sessions, in order to help shape their thought process during their formative years. Kuch Aur sessions start with a brief talk by the resource person from PCGT on how the session is going to be conducted, an introduction on PCGT and the actual movie screening. 53 sessions were conducted with 6,296 students from across 33 different schools from April 2013 to March 2014.
