Punjab Governor and UT Administrator, Sh. Banwarilal Purohit chaired a meeting with Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal and Punjab Chief Minister, Sh. Bhagwant Mann, here today, in a cordial atmosphere; regarding various issues related to Panjab University, Chandigarh.

He exhorted both the Chief Ministers that the matters related to Panjab University should be taken forward with mutual consent. “The issue of affiliation of Haryana colleges to Panjab University is not a big issue; it is possible to do so. This collaboration of Haryana and Punjab will certainly be a good start,” he added.

Haryana colleges should be affiliated with Panjab University: Manohar Lal

In the meeting, Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal said that under the Punjab Reorganisation Act, 1966, the share of Haryana was given to Panjab University and the colleges and regional centres of Haryana were affiliated to Panjab University. However, it was abolished by issuing a notification in 1973.

“In today's era, the colleges of the states are also being affiliated with international universities. The aim of the National Education Policy is that all educational institutions should cooperate in the progress of the country and the mutual relations of all the states should be further strengthened. Therefore, affiliation of colleges of Haryana should be done with Panjab University, Chandigarh,” said the Chief Minister.

Haryana government will take forward Panjab University along with Centre

Sh. Manohar Lal said that Panjab University, Chandigarh is a Central University, in which Haryana's colleges should also have affiliation. “The Haryana government, along with the Centre, will take Panjab University forward, so that the university becomes prosperous and its needs are fulfilled,” he asserted.

Haryana happy to jointly work with Punjab colleges, CM

The Chief Minister suggested to the Punjab government that if the colleges of Punjab also want to work in association with Haryana for the future of the youth, then they are welcomed.

Meanwhile, Punjab Chief Minister, Sh. Bhagwant Mann, sought some time to finalize these subjects following which a meeting has been scheduled on June 5.

CM chairs key meeting with Administrative Secretaries

Reviews the status of complaints received on the Jan Samvad portal

Redressal of every complaint received on the Jan Samvad Portal should be done in a time-bound manner, CM

So far 7200 complaints and demands have been registered on the Jan Samvad portal

Administrative Secretaries should review the progress of complaints every 7 days

Chandigarh, June 1 – Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal while chairing a key meeting with the Administrative Secretaries held here today directed them to seriously consider the complaints, demands, and recommendations received in writing from the public during the Jan Samvad Programme and ensure timely and quick redressal of every complaint. During the meeting, Sh. Manohar Lal reviewed the status of grievances received on the Jan Samvad portal.

“Every officer should ensure that complainant does not have to run from pillar to post to get the solution of their problem and to achieve this objective only, the initiative of organizing Jan Samvad has been started,” said Sh. Manohar Lal.

Directing all the Administrative Secretaries, the Chief Minister said that the officers should check the Jan Samvad portal every 7 days and review how many complaints registered under their departments have been resolved.

So far 7200 complaints and demands have been registered on the Jan Samvad portal

Sh. Manohar Lal further directed that separate categories should be made for each report at the departmental level so that complaints go unnoticed.

He stated that the Haryana government has implemented numerous e-governance programmes to make the common man’s life easier and the launch of the Jan Samvad portal is a major step in this direction. So far, around 7200 complaints and demands have been submitted on the portal and have been forwarded to concerned Administrative Secretaries for necessary action.

Jan Samvad Portal is a new initiative taken in the public interest

The Chief Minister said that in the Jan Samvad, people have shared with him that they used to give several copies of their written complaints to various public representatives, but their applications used to get misplaced. Understanding this dilemma, we have launched the Jan Samvad portal so that no complaint goes unnoticed. Under this new IT setup, information regarding the written representation given by the people is digitally recorded on this site and submitted to the concerned departments for further action.

Sh. Manohar Lal said that when a complaint or demand is submitted on this portal, the information is sent to the complainant through SMS. Following that, information regarding the action being initiated by the respective department and officer is also sent to the complainant via SMS.

“People are lauding the government for taking such an innovative system. The public now believes that their written documents will not be discarded and every single complaint will be addressed,” said Sh. Manohar Lal.

Officers should fix a deadline for the redressal of every complaint

The Chief Minister stated that officers and the state government should jointly aim to resolve every grievance raised by our citizens. Therefore, officers should fix a deadline for the redressal of every complaint received on the portal. This will also fix the accountability of the officer concerned, said Sh. Manohar Lal.

Monitoring will be ensured from the CM office to the village level

The Chief Minister said that on the Jan Samvad portal, the government has complete information regarding the works to be executed at the village level. The Chief Minister's Office monitors this portal on a daily basis. Not only that, but all nodal officers will access this portal on a daily basis to take action and report the status. Monitoring of all work from the CM's office to the village level would be assured in this manner.

He also directed that every Administrative Secretary or his nodal officer should access the Gram Darshan Portal, Nagar Darshan Portal, CM Window, and Jan Samvad Portal on a daily basis to expedite the completion of tasks.

Chief Secretary, Sh. Sanjeev Kaushal, Chief Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Sh. D.S Dhesi, Additional Chief Secretary and Financial Commissioner, Revenue and Disaster Management Department, Sh. Rajesh Khullar, Additional Chief Secretary, Home, Sh.
