73 per cent Indians have confidence in their government, highest in the world. According to a report published in Forbes magazine, quoting OECD's Government at a Glance report, people's faith in Modi Government surpasses every other government in the world.
With 73 per cent India sits firmly at the top, while Justin Trudeau's government comes second having earned the confidence of 62 per cent of its people. Turkey (58%), Russia (58%) and Germany also secured spots in top 5, the data quoted by report indicated.
In the United States, where fake news, scandals and allegations about Russian collision are still dogging the White House, only 30 per cent of people have confidence in their government. In the United Kingdom which is attempting to negotiate an amicable divorce from the European Union, trust stands at 41 per cent, Forbes report said.
Government trust levels are generally determined by whether or not people consider their government stable and reliable, if it's able to protect its citizens from risk and whether it can effectively deliver public services.
Trust in government serves as a driving force for a country's economic development, makes governmental decisions more effective and leads to greater compliance with regulations and the tax system.
