Dr Jitendra asks State Govts to strictly follow DoPT guidelines

Jaipur, December 22
Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh has called upon the State Governments to strictly follow the DoPT and ARPG guidelines laid down by the union Ministry of Personnel because these are in the larger interest of good governance and for making the administration more citizen-centric and accountable. He also put the record straight as far as the postings of district heads are concerned and stated that the posts of District Development Commissioner / District Collector or Senior Superintendent of Police in-charge of district are essentially the cadre posts which are expected to be filled with officers from IAS or IPS cadre and not the provincial services. Dr Jitendra Singh was addressing the valedictory session of the regional conference on “Innovation in Citizen Centric Delivery” here today. Pertinent to mention that this is one of the series of similar regional conferences started by the Ministry to carry the message of citizen- centric governance to every nook and corner of the country. The last such conference was held in Jammu and prior to that, similar conferences have been held in other parts of the country, including Nagpur and Guwahati. The next such conference is scheduled to be held in the month of January at Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh. Speaking on the occasion, Dr Jitendra Singh lamented that some of the most path-breaking administrative reforms brought in by the Modi government in the last two years are yet to be effectively implemented by certain State Governments.
