CS stresses quality redressal of grievances by Vigilance Week's End

Srinagar, Sep 4: Chief Secretary, Dr. Arun Kumar Mehta Monday in presence of Administrative Secretaries, Divisional Commissioners, Deputy Commissioner and other officers kick-started the week long ‘Bhrashtachar Mukt J&K' campaign here across all the districts of the UT. Outstation based officers participated through video conferencing.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Mehta observed that UT of J&K has made remarkable progress in ensuring transparency and accountability, and there is a need to institutionalize it so that it becomes intrinsic to the system.

Dr. Mehta maintained that the initiatives taken during the recent past have reinforced the trust of people in governance. He recalled that unlike the present system, there was earlier a system of giving contracts without going for tendering process or appointing people without going for due recruitment process.

Implementation of measures like BEAMS, e-tendering, seeking of Administrative Approval and Technical Sanction have resulted in establishing financial discipline  which has resulted in phenomenal increase in the number of projects being completed, from merely 9,000 projects during 2018-19 to 92,000 during 2022-23 with nearly same expenditure.

The Chief Secretary complimented ‘Team J&K' for their untiring efforts for taking J&K to the top performing States/UTs in the Country. While directing all the Prabhari Officers to visit their concerned panchayat atleast once during this week, the Chief Secretary asked the Incharge Secretaries of the districts to intensively monitor the activities carried out under the Bhrashtachar Mukt J&K in their concerned districts. Dr. Mehta further advised the Deputy Commissioners to fully involve all representatives of Urban and Rural Local Bodies in this intensive campaign against corruption.

Earlier, Commissioner Secretary, GAD, Sanjeev Verma gave an overview of the activities planned during the week as well as about the improvement in the overall working of the Government which has been made possible through slew of measures taken in the recent past.

It was further revealed that activities like debates, discussions, painting competitions etc are also planned to create awareness among the College and school children about the menace of corruption and its possible remedies available to the public. More than 14000 events are going to be organized across all the districts of the UT with events at Panchayats, Patwar Khanas, Urban Local Bodies, Tehsils and Districts in which the general public is participating in large numbers.
