Early Times Report
Jammu, July 9: Taking note of a report published in Early Times on July 6 about dilatory mode of functioning in plethora of government departments including civil secretariat, the Governor administration has finally come out with the set of fresh warnings to the shrieker babus.
Subjected as efficient and speedy disposal of files in the Secretariat and other Government offices, a circular bearing No. 39-GADof2019 Dated: 08 - 07 - 2019 was issued by the General Administration Department in which parameters have been set for the disposal of the files. It reads: "Circular instructions have been issued vide Circular No. 35-GAD of 2006 dated 07.12.2006, on the efficient and speedy disposal of files and transaction of Government business. However, it has been observed that inordinate delays take place in the disposal of office files both in the Secretariat and field offices due to the large number of hierarchical levels through which the files have to pass. The matter has been considered further and it has been decided to issue a set of instructions for speedy disposal of files."
The circular has set three days as maximum period for the disposal of files in the government departments, emphasising that the common masses have been bearing the brunt of inordinate delays and shirker performance of the babus.
Pertinent to mention that in its July 6 edition, Early Times ne highlighted now the common masses have been ruing over the inefficacy of the government offices with pleas getting mounted followed by no action at all for months.
ET had back then also questioned government's non- seriousness in implementing the Jammu & Kashmir Public Services Guarantee Act (J&K PSGA) which was introduced in the year 2011 amid much fanfare.
The report had highlighted how after eight years since the enactment of the Act, and the Designated Offices (DOs) in government departments least bother about maintaining a register in a prescribed form wherein necessary details such as name and address of the applicant, service for which the application is given, last date of the stipulated time limit, application allowed or disallowed and date/ details of the order passed are to be recorded.
Quoting official sources, the report had revealed that a detailed report has been sought by the Governor himself to get first hand appraisal of the reasons due to which the act has been kept in limbo for so long and the common person too isn't getting benefited from it in any way.
It is pertinent to mention here that there have been plethora of measures taken by the present administration to rein in the corrupt and provide Hasse free governance to the common masses who have been bearing the brunt of the anarchic system of functioning of the popular regimes of the state.
There were also reports coming to fore that the Jammu & Kashmir Public Services Guarantee Act (J&K PSGA) may be implemented in toto in crucial government departments and emphasis will be laid on the fulfilment of its main objective which is to provide quick and hassle free governance to the people.
