As a part of its endeavour to usher in administrative reforms in the different departments, the Orissa government is aiming to roll out two new projects- Human Resource Management System and Litigation Management System by December this year.
These two projects would be executed for the benefit of 3.35 lakh government employees in the state. Under the Human Resource Management System, the records of all the government employees would be computerized.
The Litigation Management System aims to reduce litigation time of cases through better monitoring and supervision.
The decision was taken at a meeting of all secretaries chaired by the state Chief Secretary B K Pattnaik.
"A summary of the reports of the Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) would be sent to different departments of the state government. The ARC has 15 reports in all and seven task forces have been constituted for this purpose. Around 50,000-60,000 vacancies are set to be created in different departments over the next five years and necessary steps need to be taken to ensure that these vacancies are filled up”, Pattnaik told reporters after the meeting.
The objective of administrative reforms is to strengthen local administration, ensure timely disposal of public grievances and enable the different departments to focus more on departmental and policy issues.
The ARC coves many areas like Unlocking Human Capital, Ethics in Governance, Crisis Management- From Despair to Hope, Promoting e-Governance, Citizen Centric Administration, Capacity Building for Conflict Resolution, Strengthening Financial Management Systems and Public Order to name a few.
