About Civis

Civis has developed a platform that enables citizens engagement, in our democracies, by creating a channel for constructive dialogue between citizens and the Government on draft laws and policies.

Through Civis, individuals in India can understand an upcoming law or policy and share their feedback on this law, which goes straight to lawmakers. This crucial step of consultation allows for the participatory design of policies and increased trust and dialogue.

Civic Innovation Foundation believes that laws that are drafted for the people, should be drafted with the people.

On its online platform, Civis:

  • Aggregates all open laws seeking feedback.
  • Simplifies these laws in easy-to-understand language.
  • Translates them into local languages.
  • Reaches out to individuals and gather inputs on these laws.
  • Analyses and shares citizen’s feedback with the Government – building Government capacity to run effective Consultations, and gather actionable insights.
