Do not reject Sakaala applications: says CM

Bangalore, Feb 16, 2013, DHNS
Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar on Saturday urged government employees not to reject any application filed under Sakaala on grounds of technicalities.

“Early disposal of the application is one thing, but rejecting applications is another. It is estimated that around five per cent of the applications are rejected. You need to solve people’s problem,” Shettar said at a convention on “Effective implementation of Sakaala and people friendly convention” organised by the Karnataka State Government Employees’ Association.

Sakaala is the flagship scheme of the government for delivering services within a stipulated time frame.

“It does not help rejecting applications. Assist them in all possible manner,” Shettar said.
He said the Sakaala scheme in the State, with a disposal rate of 98 per cent, had become a role model for the country.

Association President L Bhyrappa urged the government to fill vacancies and also improve infrastructure in government offices for effective implementation of Sakaala scheme.
He also urged the government to create a mechanism to prevent misuse of Right to Information (RTI).

“Many times, employees spend more time collecting and furnishing information to applicants instead of discharging their regular duties. Applicants seeking irrelevant details are also on the rise. There should be some mechanism to prevent RTI being used to harass employees,” Bhyrappa said.
