Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Jan 19: Chief Secretary, Dr Arun Kumar Mehta today launched five services developed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC) for the migrants registered with Department of Disaster Management, Relief Rehabilitation & Reconstruction (DMRRR) and retiring Government employees, seeking ‘No Demand Certificate (NDC)’ from the Estates Department.
The meeting was attended by Commissioner Secretary, IT and Information Department; Secretary, GAD; Secretary, DMRRR; Directors of Estates Kashmir/Jammu; Scientists from NIC and many other concerned officers.
Some of the officers participated in the meeting through video conferencing.
Dr Mehta stressed upon the officers to bring quality and promptness in the availability and delivery of all of the services. He enjoined upon them that any undue delay would be unacceptable. He remarked that the main objective for offering various services in online mode to public is their easy accessibility, timely delivery and transparency.
He maintained that when most of the services are provided online to public, the need is to integrate them with Auto-appeal system so that the same are provided within the period envisaged in the Public Services Guarantee Act. He observed that integration of relevant services with the auto-appeal facility would be a game changer in real sense and bring about utmost responsibility and accountability among the serving departments.
Meanwhile, Chief Secretary directed the officers to focus on optimum utilisation of all the Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) in Jammu and Kashmir.
He passed on these directions during a meeting here to review the functioning of the 30 MLD STP at Bhagwati Nagar Jammu. The meeting was attended by Principal Secretary Housing & Urban Development Department (H&UDD) and other concerned officers.
While chairing the meeting, CS directed that our endeavour should not only be enhancing the treatment capacity of the STPs but on the quality of treatment done by them. He said that there is no point treating some waste water to a high degree and mixing it with untreated water.
He said that STP at Bhagwati Nagar should be put to its optimum use. He said that maximum benefits will be reaped only when it reaches to its full capacity of 30 MLD. He said that it needs to be studied whether we have reaped the fruits we capable of from creation of such public assets.
Chief Secretary directed the officers to explore options of short term and intermediate solutions for sewage treatment where STPs are yet to be developed. He said that short term and long term solutions need innovations in their approach towards grey water and sewage management.
