No government official shall leave headquarters without permission of competent authority: Meet Hayer
Chandigarh : The Punjab government has issued a letter to all the departments and instructed that no officer should leave headquarters without the approval of the competent authority to ensure that public work is not affected.
It was stated by Governance Reforms Minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer during the ongoing Vidhan Sabha Budget Session. He was responding to the call attention notice brought by MLA Dinesh Kumar Chadha during the session.
The MLA pointed out that it has been noticed, some of the government administrative officers go to their homes in Mohali or other places after 5 pm instead of staying at their station, due to which the public work is badly affected.
Therefore, necessary orders should be issued in this regard that all the officers should remain at their stations. Meet Hayer said that following the slogan ‘Government is for the people and by the people’ of the state government led by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, General Administration Department has issued a letter in this regard.
Meet Hayer further said that the state government has given more than 26000 government jobs in a short period. He said that with this, where the youth got employment, the people started getting better citizen services also.
He also advised the newly recruited government employees that they were recruited with the tax money of the common people, so don’t run for transfers. He said that this is an unfortunate trend because every region, and district of the state needs government services, whether it is a border area or a backward area.
