CM hails banning higher denomination,  demands construction of bunkers for border residents

Tawi: Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti has welcomed the decision of the Central Government to withdraw currency denominations of 500 and 1000 saying the step was needed to check the scourge of black money and corruption in the country.

The Chief Minister described corruption as a vicious menace which eats up the vitals of growth and development of a society and the country. She hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his bold steps to check corruption, illegal transaction of money and other such evils which hamper the development of the country.

Jammu and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today further said that a plan should be worked out for construction of individual bunkers and community bunkers for the people of the border areas who usually become targets of cross border shelling.

“Mehbooba asked the Chief Secretary to work out a plan for construction of individual bunkers and community bunkers for the people of the border areas who usually become targets of cross border shelling,” an official spokesman said.

She was chairing a meeting of the Administrative secretaries after opening of offices in the winter capital, here today.

On the implementation of Public Services Guarantee Act in the state, the Chief Minister advised adoption of a transparent file tracking mechanism to avoid inordinate delays and ensure speedy disposals.

She also asked the officers to be responsive to public grievances and try to mitigate the same to maximum extent possible.

She also reviewed the status of biometric attendance in offices and generation of Aadhar cards and directed the IT Secretary to fill in the gaps in the enrolment process.

She asked the Secretaries to ensure that the employees and their families are enrolled under Aadhar.

She specifically asked the Secretary to complete the Aadhar enrolment in schools as many of the welfare schemes for students have now been linked to Aadhar.

 

The Chief Minister was informed that so far 94 lakh people have been enrolled under Aadhar out of which 84 lakh cards have been issued so far.

In case of the remaining, the enrolment process is on, the Chief Minister was informed.
