It may not be best of the ways democracy functions, where every official has to discharge their duties, but India seems to work differently. Now, citizens of India can directly write to prime minister Narendra Modi.

The Prime Minister's Office has revamped its website with an option to send a letter directly to the prime minister. The highlight of new look is the option that provides people with an option to write to the prime minister directly now, a move timed right around the one year completion of the Modi government in power.

To send the prime minister your email register yourself on the website first.  http://pmindia.gov.in/en/interact-with-honble-pm/

The Modi government has been facing criticism for giving interviews few media orgaisations and not being open for public queries. Embedding the option of 'write to PM' might be a step in a direction to give people a kind of direct access to the prime minister and also put faith in people about the government's transparency.

The new website has a section 'Our Government' that has nine sub-sections — The President of India, Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha, The Cabinet Secretariat, Press information Bureau, Open Government Data, National portal of INDIA, GOI Web Directory and MyGov. These sub-sections are links of respective websites.
