Gurgaon DC holds monthly meet of district officers

The deputy commissioner (DC) of Gurgaon, Vinay Pratap Singh, chaired the monthly meeting of district officers yesterday.

He asked the officers to promptly redress the complaints lodged on CM Window, a web portal launched for addressing citizens’ grievances. He added if any complaint is left pending for a long time, the concerned office head would be held responsible.

The DC reviewed progress on various schemes implemented through the departments of the state government. He also urged the district officers to complete pending work on CM announcements as early as possible. He added that about 67 announcements of the CM were still pending.

Furthermore, the complaints received through CM’s social media grievance portal must be redressed within 48 hours.

While reviewing the District Plan (D-Plan), Singh said Gurgaon district has been allotted funds to the tune of Rs 11.75 crore, and it has been distributed to the concerned officers who need to start development work for sanctioned projects. If any amount gets lapsed, the concerned officer will be held responsible.

The DC said the state government has relaxed the terms and conditions for spending under D-Plan. Work upto Rs 10 lakh can be done without calling  tenders — the money would be sanctioned on a quarterly basis.

During the meeting, the issue of making urban Gurgaon ODF (Open Defection Free) was also discussed. Singh said that the officials of Municipal Corporation Gurugram, municipal councils and municipal committees need to collaborate with NGOs, RWAs and other stakeholders to ensure speedier results. The timeline, he added, for making urban areas of the city ODF is only two months.

The issue of making Gurgaon roads free of stray cattle was also discussed. Deputy director of animal husbandry, Dr Punita, said 2,000 stray cattle still roam the roads of the city. They are gradually being caught and sent to the nearest gaushalas (cowsheds).

The additional deputy commissioner Pradeep Dahiya; additional labour commissioner Ashok Garg; SDM Gurgaon (north) Bharat Bhushan Gogia; SDM (south) Satish Yadav; SDM Pataudi Ravinder Yadav; and MCG joint commissioner Alka Chaudhary were also present along with other officers.
