CM reviews flagship programmes, tells DCs to improve state owned revenue sources

ITANAGAR, Sep 26: Chief Minister Pema Khandu reviewed the status of the prime minister’s and chief minister’s flagship programmes in the state with the deputy commissioners through video conferencing.
The chief minister said the review meeting through videoconferencing will be held every month and asked the deputy commissioners to improve upon the sectors flagged in the meeting.
“Every three months we have to report to the Prime Minister’s Office on status of important flagships programmes in the state. These are the area of most concern to the prime minister,” said Pema.
He drew the attention of the deputy commissioners to work on improving state owned revenue sources. He said the performing districts in revenue sector will see no dearth of funds from the state government.
Appreciating the East Kameng district administration for best performance in ‘Sarkar Aapke Dwar’ scheme, the chief minister urged the other district authorities to take cue from it to determine the effectiveness of the programme based on the baseline survey.
“Sarkar Aapke Dwar should not only be an event to distribute forms and applications. We must ensure that we are able to give direct benefits to the beneficiaries,” said Pema.
He urged the DCs to maximize enrolment for beneficiaries under Ayushman Bharat and CMAAY schemes, including maximizing the use of GeM portal for procurement.
He asked the DCs to expedite issuing land possession certificates and to carry out bank loan recovery drive to bring back the confidence of the banks. He said many important schemes linked with the banks are unable to draw more beneficiaries as banks are suffering with liability from non-performing assets created through unrecovered loans.
The videoconferencing was arranged by the National Informatics Centre (NIC) here at the Chief Minister’s Office, which used Unnati – an app to monitor important schemes through videoconference. (PRO to CM)
