Bhagidari is a project designed by the Delhi government in 2000 to involve its citizens in facilitating city wide changes by creating a formal system between resident, civil society organizations and relevant government departments.

This initiative made institutional arrangements and implemented decentralization measures to meet the needs of the citizens through which they could participate directly and carry out their societal responsibilities.

The principles of Large Group Dynamics and Bhagidari workshop were adopted for peoples engagement in intensive and participatory dialogue with the stakeholders on issues of common concern.

The people felt as though they were part of the government as they had their say in the solutions to their problems. As a result, citizen associations have emerged as a key player in shaping policies.
