Government and Sudhansh Pant serious about good governance 

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 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 IAS officer who has worked with Sudhansh Pant.
