Mo Sarkar initiative: CM reviews ‘performance’; praises Health, Revenue departments

Bhubaneswar: Under the ambitious ‘Mo Sarkar’ initiative, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today reviewed the performances of different Departments of the State government.

The CM heaped praises on Health and Revenue departments for their notable performances during the last year.

About 3,70,000 land Pattas (Records of Rights) were issued by Revenue Department in seven days. Ninety-nine percent of feedback collected on the Health Department was found to be ‘outstanding’, said a press release.

The Chief Minister emphasised that employees of different departments concerned will be appreciated for their good performances and be punished otherwise, based on the feedback received. Any delay in the disbursement of pensions to elderly beneficiaries is not at all acceptable, the CM expressed.

The CM also advised the officials concerned to regularly collect feedback on the Department’s performance.

An official said that several departments submitted presentations pertaining to their performances for review by the CM, including Health, Revenue, Home and Agriculture.

5T Secretary VK Pandian and Development Commissioner Anu Garg were present during the review meeting.

The Departments not regularly receiving good feedback on their performances need to bring about changes and improvise the schemes and programmes already taken up, the 5T secretary said.

Notably, the basic objective of ‘Mo Sarkar’ initiative is to provide service with dignity to people coming to different offices of the State government. It mandates that anyone visiting these offices would have his/her mobile number registered for the purpose of collecting feedback.

Subsequently, phone calls will be made either by the Chief Minister, a Minister or the authorities of respective departments to the randomly selected phone numbers, in turn, to help improve the governance system by collecting feedback on behaviour and professionalism shown by government officials.
