Speed up, complete works within fiscal: Amitha Prasad

 With just two months left for the fiscal year (2013-14) to end, Director General of Administrative Training Institute (ATI) Amitha Prasad, also the district in-charge secretary, directed the officers to complete the programmes within the stipulated time.

Presiding over a meeting at the office of deputy commissioner, here, on Saturday, she instructed the officers to pull up their socks and take stock of the situation in their respective departments.

She directed the nodal officers of each of the seven taluks here to submit a report in this regard to Deputy Commissioner C Shikha.

Apart from meeting the deadline, the officers should also think of accomplishing popular programmes like organic farming, conservation of soil, tapping solar energy and alternative crops that could help revive the financial status of the farmers.

Manaswini, a programme intended at empowering spinsters and divorcee women in rural areas with pension, has to be extended to urban areas too, she said, asking the officers to divert their attention for the successful implementation of the same.

The Education department should conduct three preparatory exams for SSLC students in addition to the special classes to help improve their performances. The social welfare department has to give preference to hygiene at hostels. 

Deputy Commissioner C Shikha said that owing to lack of rainfall in Periyapatna, H D Kote and Hunsur taluks (though not considered as drought hit) in the district, an action plan was being prepared to address the possible water woes that may emerge in the future in said taluks.
