Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said silos are a "big bottleneck" in the functioning of the union government and asked bureaucrats to adopt innovative ways to break these to speed up the processes of governance, which will benefit the people.

He has asked the bureaucrats to work with dedication towards creation of New India by 2022. He conveyed the message during interactions with around 380 Directors and Deputy Secretaries working in various departments and ministries in the government of India, the PMO said in a statement here today.

The interactions were held in four groups, it added. "Emphasised on innovative methods to break silos & further improve the speed of governance. This will greatly benefit people," Modi tweeted tonight.

The prime minister exhorted the officers to work with full dedication towards creation of New India by 2022, the PMO statement said.

"He said that silos are a big bottleneck in the functioning of the union government," the statement said. "He urged the officers to adopt innovative ways to break silos, which will result in the speeding up of various processes of governance," it added.

In the same vein, the prime minister said officers at the level of Director and Deputy Secretary must create teams, to achieve better results.

Subjects such as governance, corruption, public enterprises, government e-marketplace (GeM), health, education, skill development, agriculture, transportation, national integration, water resources, swachh bharat, culture, communication and tourism came up for discussion during the interactions, the statement said.
