Odisha to implement Right to Public Service Act from January 2013

Bhubaneswar:The State Government on Saturday decided to implement an Odisha Right to Public Service Act from January 2013. This was decided at a high-level meeting presided over by CM Naveen Patnaik at the State Secretariat.

The initiative was taken by the State Government following the Union Government’s act of bringing a Bill on right to citizens for time-bound delivery of goods and services and redressal of their grievances in the Parliament.

The Act would ensure time-bound delivery of important public services to the citizens. The CM hoped that the proposed law would make the public service delivery mechanism more efficient and transparent. E-governance would play a major role in this initiative, he said.

 As per the provisions of the legislation, important 31 public services delivered by seven departments  like, Commerce and Transport, Home, Finance, Rural Development, Revenue and Disaster Management, Health and Family Welfare and Women and Child Development have been identified for coverage under the proposed Act in first phase.

11 services of Commerce and Transport, 12 services of Revenue and Disaster Management, Health and Family Welfare’s three services  and two services of Home Department would be implemented in January 2013.

Official sources said, the citizens of the State would be entitled to public services within the prescribed time limit. In case of any deviation, the citizens will have the right to appeal, the sources added.

Besides, as per the provisions of the Bill, disciplinary proceedings apart from penalties could be imposed against the concerned defaulting public officials for dereliction of duty.

The Chief Minister has also asked officials to place it in notice board of all the offices for the knowledge of Government officers and stressed on the creation of awareness among the people about the Act.
