Ensuring Timely Services In Gram Panchayats : Overcoming Administrative Hurdles

A spokesperson of the Panchayati Raj Department said here today that alternative arrangements have been made for the smooth functioning of various developmental works in Gram Panchayats across the state. The Department is taking all necessary steps to deal with the situation arising due to the unauthorized absence of certain categories of employees.

As of now, routine works related to MGNREGS and other developmental activities besides issuance of various certificates etc. are being done at the Panchayat level. For the convenience of the people, the charge of Panchayat Secretaries has been temporarily handed over to Gram Rozgar Sevaks, Sewing Teachers and Panchayat Chowkidars in the present circumstances.

They have also been given financial powers to run the work smoothly. This alternative arrangement has helped in restoring the issuance of certificates and other normal functioning of the Gram Panchayats. He said that the absence of technical staff was causing delayed wage payments to the MGNREGS workers as well as hampering development works being undertaken for disaster relief and restoration. A special package has been announced by the state government for the disaster affected families.

Under this package, reconstruction of houses and cowsheds and other relief and rehabilitation works, conservation activities of agriculture and horticulture land etc is to be done. But, these works are being affected due to the absence of technical staff, he added. The spokesperson said that the department has now sought details from all the Chief Executive Officers of the Zila Parishad on the unauthorized absence of employees in view of the delay in developmental and disaster relief works by October 18, 2023.

He said that there should be no unnecessary delay in disaster relief and rehabilitation works and the Panchayati Raj Department was determined to ensure all assistance and other benefits to the affected families on time. For this, alternative arrangements were also being made as per requirement, he added.
