Bhubaneswar: The State Government's efforts in disaster management, provision of land rights to slum dwellers and successful reduction of Naxalite violence have been recognized by the entire country, said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday.
Addressing a meeting with top officials at the State Secretariat, Naveen advised the entire Government machinery to work in cohesion by implementing '5Ts' to bring about transformational changes. "We cannot be satisfied with incremental changes," he said.
In order to improve accountability and citizen-centric governance, the Government has decided that Annual Performance Appraisal Reports of the district SPs and IFS officers of the level of Additional PCCF and above will be submitted to the Chief Minister as 'Accepting Authority'.
Besides, in the performance appraisal of the officers, the implementation of 5T components will be accorded 20 percent weightage.
In order to streamline the functioning of Directorates and speed up the process of decision-making, the Directorates under the Departments shall function as composite entity. The OSWAS system shall be modified to integrate the Directorates with the Departments.
The Chief Minister also discussed on new initiatives on 5T to be taken up by Works, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, Higher Education, SSEPD, Health and Family Welfare and the Revenue and DM Departments.
