CM reviews revenue generating Depts.
Amaravati, April 21:
Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy directed the officials to pay special attention towards introducing state-of-the-art technology in policy implementation in revenue generating departments to improve efficiency and render improvised services in full transparency to the tax payers.
At a review meeting on revenue generating departments held here on Friday, the Chief Minister said modern technology would help reduce human involvement in the implementation of policies and asked the officials to conduct a study on using technology and submit a detailed report in the next review.
Implementation of appropriate policies would help plug leakages and extend improvised services to the tax payers besides enhancing the revenue, he said and directed them to pay special attention towards the subject. All departments should improve their functioning by the next review, he said.
He stressed the need to display prominently the contact phone numbers of responsible officials at all Mandal, Town Planning, Stamps and Registrations offices and Village and Ward Secretariats for extending all civic services to the people in transparency. The ACB (Anti Corruption Bureau) officials also should be active promptly responding to complaints from the tax payers, he suggested.
The Chief Minister also asked the officials to take special steps to curb the use and distribution of drugs among the youth by displaying awareness hoardings with toll free numbers at Universities and Colleges.
