Govt to monitor work progress
DISTRICTS UNDER SCANNER
Srinagar, Oct 30: Following complaints about delay in completion of works and disposal of grievances at district level the state government has decided to closely monitor and scrutinize the progress of works on regular basis.
The punctuality of the employees at districts level would be monitored closely to the extent that the report would not only go to the government but would be even submitted to Raj Bhawan.
Officials told Greater Kashmir the move to closely monitor the work was initiated to make the top officials of different departments at secretariat level and at district level “more accountable.”
Sources told Greater Kashmir that though government was receiving the monthly reports about the progress of development in the districts, it had not yielded “efficient results.”
As per the new order the heads of the administration units--10 each in Kashmir and Jammu--would be submitting daily progress report to the Chief Secretary and monitoring cell of the Chief Minister.
A group of 20 secretaries nominated by the government—10 each in Kashmir and Jammu—would act as “guides” in building up a comprehensive and speedy response framework to the evolving problems.
Concerned Deputy Commissioners would be submitting the daily report dealing with all the issues except law and order, to the respective guides, Chief Secretary’s office and Chief Minister’s monitoring cell during morning hours. The reports would also be dealing with public grievances and their disposal.
On their side the administrative secretary in charge would be submitting a separate detailed report to the CS and CM’s monitoring cell every Friday, followed by a separate detailed briefing by Chief Secretary’s office to CM about the works.
Besides the administrative secretaries would be submitting a detailed report about the performance of the departments under their control to the CS which would also be evaluated by CM’s office.
“It is a mean to ensure reforms in the system and strengthen it. However, it remains to be seen how effectively the system works given the bitter experience in the past,” officials said.
Besides, the administrative heads have been asked to submit the daily report about functioning of the offices in district headquarters and subordinate offices in their jurisdiction and punctuality of the employees to the government.
“The decision is already in place for more than a month in Kashmir as well as Jammu. A copy of the report goes to the CM office and sometimes the details are also sent to Raj Bhawan,” officials said.
