Bhopal:Monday, July 20: The style of functioning plays an important role in building the image of government. Therefore, officers must carry out their duties with complete transparency, devotion and sensitivity so that poor people can avail benefits of various welfare schemes of the state government smoothly. This will brighten the government’s image among the masses. These views were expressed by Finance Minister Shri Raghavji while addressing a training programme for newly appointed Naib Tehsildars of Revenue Department here today. The training programme was held at the newly built conference hall of RCVP Noronha Academy of Administration and Management. Those present at the function included Director General of Academy of Administration Dr. Sandeep Khanna, trainee Naib Tehsildars, deputy collectors and accounts officers.
In his address, Shri Raghavji said that Naib Tehsildars, Deputy Collectors and accounts officers are important parts of the government who do the field work of implementing and getting implemented government’s schemes. He said that even if two to four officers in a district do their work with devotion and sensitivity, honesty, it builds a good image of the government and administration. Shri Raghavji exhorted the trainee officers to work dedicatedly for the benefit of 70 percent population of the state, which lives in villages. This will not only convey benefits to the common man, but will also give self-satisfaction to the officers themselves. The Finance Minister said that construction of air-conditioned conference hall at the Academy will facilitate officers and employees who imbibe training there.
At the outset, Finance Minister Shri Raghavji garlanded a statue of Maa Saraswati and lighted a lamp before it to inaugurate the training programme.
