Pace of development
The Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir recently appreciated his administration for the completion of many important projects and asked his officers to reform the system more so that more and more work is done on the ground.
He maintained that J&K has improved on many indices continuously from the last few years. He gave out that the developmental curve has seen an upward trend with enhanced focus on both quality and quantity of work done on ground.
He stressed on continuing this pace and momentum of development and reforms in administration so that the objective of less government more governance is achieved effectively. He enumerated that the UT has been successful in moving up the ladder on a number of developmental parameters. He elucidated that whether it is digitization of land records, construction of roads under PMGSY, tourist arrivals, sports infrastructure or activities, industrial Investments etc, J&K happens to be an example in fast tracking development.
In terms of reforms, he observed that the UT has done a transformative job. He stated that a year or so before, it was unimaginable to think of Digital J&K, which is a reality today. He reiterated that no goal fixed ever has remained too far for J&K to achieve. He stated that the reforms taken by the LG administration had been first of their kind in the history of J&K. He said that be it District Good Governance Index, Departmental Deliverables, saturation of individual beneficiary programmes, Aspirational blocks, Aspirational Panchayats, introduction of e-office or other measures, J&K has attained a distinction in moving towards a more vibrant, responsive, transparent and accountable system in these years.
