A TIME-SAV­ING INI­TIA­TIVE

Deccan Chronicle - - OPED -

Te­lan­gana state chief sec­re­tary S.P. Singh has come to the res­cue of all busy IAS of­fi­cials work­ing in the dis­tricts. The bu­reau­crats were pro­vided an on­line fa­cil­ity for of­fi­cial com­mu­ni­ca­tion, an ar­range­ment that does not re­quire them to come all the way to Hy­der­abad to meet him per­son­ally for any of­fi­cial du­ties.

In tune with Mr Singh’s ini­tia­tive, the state gov­ern­ment launched a spe­cial web­site in which the IAS of­fi­cials posted any­where in the state can up­load their leave forms and en­cash­ment ap­pli­ca­tions. The chief sec­re­tary’s nod, or oth­er­wise, is posted on­line im­me­di­ately. This has brought in an over­whelm­ing “pos­i­tive” re­sponse from of­fi­cials as it would ease their bur­den to huge lev­els.

The new sys­tem has not only helped of­fi­cials to get rid of pend­ing griev­ances in­stantly but also saved their time. As the Te­lan­gana gov­ern­ment has in­tro­duced sev­eral schemes, the dis­trict of­fi­cials now have more time to ad­dress them.
