Pune: District Collectors and Divisional Commissioners should give emphasis on bringing transparency in their day-to-day functioning, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said while addressing top administrative officers at Yashwantrao Chavan Academy of Development Administration (YASHADA) here on Friday.
He said the officers exactly know the reasons for lack of transparency. He added, “At the government-level efforts are on to plug issues like human intervention, lack of objectivity, discretion with the help of IT-enabled solutions.” Stating that transparency ensures speedy work, he added that transparency is growing at all levels in the district administration. He said, “Transparency at all levels will give a boost and ease business activities and pave the way for more investment in the state.”
The administration should work towards fast redressal of issues and complaints raised by the common man coming to them. He added that administration should imbibe positive and proactive attitude in solving revenue and land matters.
He added that 1.22 lakh quasi-judicial cases are pending in five divisions and 34 collectorates. Fadnavis said, “The respective Collectors and Divisional Commissioners should set an example for their subordinates, through their own conduct.”
Fadnavis added that the revenue bosses should take up the responsibility to clear pendency of these cases and there is a need to keep a regular tab on number of revenue cases cleared by subordinating officers like Additional Collectors and Additional Commissioners.
He said that if competency issue is identified, non-working officers can be replaced by a competent workforce. He added that the Collectors should take a periodical review of all tasks they are expected to fulfill.
He added that they need to prepare a feedback system so that the subordinate officers feel motivated to keep up good work and amend in case of delay.
