Village Secretariats will handle ration cards: Jagan Mohan Reddy
The proposed Village Secretariats which will become operational from October 2 will henceforth handle and distribute ration cards, Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy said on Tuesday.
In a video conference held with Collectors and Superintendents of Police to review progress of ‘Spandana’, a grievance redressal programme being held on every Monday across the State, Mr. Jagan said the decision to entrust printing and distribution of the ration cards to Village Secretariats was a “revolutionary way forward”.
He expressed his satisfaction over the efficiency with which the programme was being carried out and informed officials that the number of pending grievances had come down to 24% from 59% in a week’s time (July 12 to July 19). Mr. Jagan made it categorical that the quality of work should not be compromised and directed that a positive message should go to the people.
