Pant pays follow up surprise-visit to JDA

Rajasthan chief secretary Sudhansh Pant paid a follow up surprise visit to JDA where he found the working satisfactory

In a follow up surprise visit to Authority, secretary Sudhansh Pant found that the working of the authority has improved to a great extent. 

“The situation is satisfactory. One or two employees are still found to be careless. commissioner has been directed about it,” said Sudhansh Pant, who visited JDA at early morning. 

Sudhansh Pant, had last paid surprise visit to JDA in January this year when he had put two officers – JDA secretary Nalini Kathotia and two RAS officers – Anandi Lal Vaishnav and Praveen Kumar – on APO. 

Sudhansh Pant inspected 40 rooms across three storeys. JDA commissioner Manju Rajpal also accompanied the , who examined the online pendencies of the officers.

“The average disposal time for files has come down to nine hours. I have checked log ins of two-three officers whose average disposal is either 14 hours or 18 hours. The pendency has dropped as compared to past. There are some officers who have pendency of 3-4 days. But there is no case where files are pending for 3-4 weeks without any decision,” Sudhansh Pant said.

Sudhansh Pant visited departments other than JDA also

Ever since chief secretary Sudhansh Pant has taken over in January, he has been serious about ensuring punctuality of staff and bringing down file disposal time. The chief secretary has led by example and he has made surprise checks at the offices of Jaipur Development Authority, Jaipur Collectorate, Nagar Nigam and Transport department in two months. 

The chief secretary has not only visited these offices but has taken strict action also. He had put JDA secretary and two other officials on APO when he had not found them in their respective offices on his visit to JDA. 
Though soft spoken, Sudhansh Pant means business and he has been harsh on defaulting officials. His style of surprise checks keeps even department heads on toes. Such steps present mirror to government and governance. 

”It's a good step. I have not seen such an active and powerful chief secretary so far. With such surprise checks and stress on punctuality, a sense of discipline and accountability can be inculcated in government staff. Such efforts will have long lasting impact,” said a retired IASofficer who has worked with Sudhansh Pant.
