Gandhinagar, Friday: Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Bhupendra Patel addressed “Amrutkaalma Swarnim Bhavisya Taraf” a one day seminar organized by the Panchayat Department of the state for the presidents, vice presidents and executive committee chairman of the district panchayats in Gandhinagar. He made a motivational call to give a new pace to the development works with the mutual smooth coordination of the office bearers of the District Panchayats and the Panchayat officers of the state. Before planning developmental works of the district at the district panchayat level, proper coordination should be ensured to make the office bearers participate in the list of development works.
As an innovative approach CM made this seminar an interactive dialogue with participating District Panchayat Presidents, Vice Presidents and Executive Presidents rather than only addressing. He obtained detailed information about their performance, incentives from the state government, local issues arising at the field level – administrative matters from the office bearers of around 10 districts through questioning.
The Chief Minister requested the office-bearers to make full use of the funds through long-term planning of development works.
In the inaugural of the seminar CM e-launched the ‘Panchayati Raj Information and Management System’ (PARINAM) portal through the Panchayat Department to make Panchayati Raj more robust and efficient.
Through this PARINAM portal, there will be direct paperless communication with the state government from the taluka level, a centralized system will enable real-time monitoring and management of intra-district transfers, promotions and other schemes of employees. Not only this, by linking PARINAM with e-Sarkar in future, the Panchayat Department and the State Government will move towards becoming completely transparent and paperless.
Panchayat State Minister Shri Bachubhai Khabad guided the officials present to be the facilitators of conveying the benefit of the state-centre schemes to the people.
Additional Chief Secretary Shri. Manojkumar Das made suggestions to prepare a master plan according to the needs of the people of each district having a ‘Bottom Up’ approach and in accordance with the Sustainable Goals of UNDP.
In this one-day seminar, information was given about District Panchayat Development Plan, Taluka Panchayat Development Plan, self-fund augmentation efforts of District Panchayat, financial discipline and well-organized planning of finances and contribution of Panchayat Department in the field of IT.
