RFD: Performance Appraisal

THAT the government departments in Jammu and Kashmir will be preparing ‘Results Framework Document’, 2013 onwards is a welcome development that hopefully would bring about a positive change in the work culture in the state’s public sector. Since long a need for such a mechanism was being felt in the state as would help the government departments to spruce up and improve their outputs. It is no secret that over the years the work culture in the government departments, particularly those working on infrastructure and developmental front, has not seen any significant improvement. More often than not the poor working has badly impacted the developmental projects in the state. Not just that a number of projects started with much fanfare have faced inordinate delays, the poor work culture has given rise to the corruption levels in the public sector. No wonder then, the state has ignominiously earned the rank 2 in the most corrupted states in India. Thankfully, with the introduction of the performance appraisal reports that would come in the public domain for rating and reaction, government departments won’t find any excuse to evade their responsibility. The new system would require every department of the State to prepare its RFD making it clear whether the goals set at the beginning of the year have been achieved. Interestingly, the appraisal report would give an insight into critical segments of public functioning like allocation of funds by the departments, distribution, etc. At least 14 departments including Home, Health, Power and R&B in the state are slated to prepare the RFD every year. Pertinently, the states in Indian where “Results Framework Document” is being made have witnessed significant improvement in the work culture. After the introduction of the system in the state, there is a need that departments getting lower ranks should get rap on their knuckles. Otherwise if the purpose of RFD remains only to get public feedback and confine  it in office files, it won’t have any effect on the ground.
