Visakhapatnam: Spandana assures transparency in admin
Collector says action will be initiated if any application remains unresolved for no valid reason.
Says alerts will also be sent to people on the status of their grievances.
Visakhapatnam: People will not only know the status of their grievances but also get them resolved as per the timeline assured through the weekly grievance programme 'Spandana' on every Monday, District Collector V Vinay Chand has said.
Launching a poster of the programme at the Collectorate here on Monday, he said that 'Spandana' aims at addressing the grievances of people, giving equal priority to each petition submitted by public. "Action will be initiated if any application remains unresolved for no valid reason," he stated. From pending wages to exposing any corrupt practice or any delay in processing the employment application, public can bring any kind of grievance to the notice of the officials concerned and get them resolved in a short notice. Apart from giving receipts, alerts will also be sent to people on the status of their grievances, he stated. "The idea is to ensure transparency in the system as per Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy's directions," the District Collector said.
This apart, Vinay Chand said that every third Friday will be exclusively dedicated for employees of the departments to air their grievances. "This include, review of suspension cases, queries pertaining to earned leaves, status of increment, etc. If there is anything that should be sorted out at the State-level, it will be brought to the notice of Chief Minister as well," he added.
Further, a district portal will be designed. Works sanctioned by the State government, pensioners' details, list of beneficiaries, welfare schemes and development activities of the State government, among several other details will be uploaded on the portal. The District Collector said that discussions will be held with the officials to bring out a common format to initiate the same. The poster launch was attended by Joint Collector Lotheti Siva Sankar, among others.
