IEP CHANDIGARH JULY 15, 2022
Since the formation of the Bharatiya Janata Party government in the year 2014, the Haryana government has been continuously working for public welfare. The resolution taken by our government to bring good governance in Haryana on the occasion of Good Governance Day on December 25, 2014, is being fully realized today, because the benefits of public welfare policies of the government are reaching the last man standing in line. Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal said this while addressing the gathering at a programme of the organization in Surajkund today, during which he enumerated the achievements of the Haryana government. He said that the biggest example of this is the removal of kharchi-parchi system in government recruitments in Haryana. He said that only eligible candidates have got jobs on the basis of merit.
Sh. Manohar Lal said that during the tenure of the previous governments, children of poor families could only dream of getting into government jobs. At that time, to get a job, one had to resort to the parchi-kharchi system, so the dreams of the youth always remained unfulfilled. But our government ended this system as soon as it came to power. After that the officers who used to recommend jobs according to their wish, were also abolished. We started Mission Merit by ending the practice of interviewing in recruitments. Now government recruitments are being done only on the basis of merit.
He said that during the tenure of the previous governments, the kind of disturbances in government recruitment was known to all. Not only this, most of the recruitments got canceled from the court, but not a single government recruitment has been canceled from the court during our tenure.
Rs. 1,200 crore saved through transparency
The Chief Minister said that after coming to power, we laid emphasis on e-governance to remove the ongoing corruption in the system. To pave the way for good governance through e-governance, we not only focused on developmental projects but also did many system transformation works. The state government made sure to provide the schemes and services of every department through online medium. Today, the financial benefits given to the beneficiaries under various schemes and services of the central and state governments are being deposited directly to their bank accounts. This not only brought transparency in the system but also eliminated middlemen. As a result the state government has saved Rs. 1,200 crore by curbing corruption.
Parivar Pehchan Patra proving milestone
Sh. Manohar Lal said that our government is working with the spirit of Antyodaya. Therefore, the state government has started an ambitious scheme called Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP), under which the poor families have to be identified and financially uplifted and brought into the mainstream. Today, people are getting the benefits of all government schemes through PPP sitting at home and do not have to make rounds of government offices.
The Chief Minister said that since the old age pension has been linked with the PPP, the pension of old persons is being generated automatically through online mode on attaining the age of 60 years. Apart from this, the work of making ration card on the basis of income through PPP is also going on. In the last 3 months, about 80,000 ration cards have been made.
Our real goal is to start with the last person in line
The Chief Minister said that the aim of the government is to uplift the last person standing in the queue. Whoever is eligible will definitely receive benefits, but the poor person will get the benefit of government schemes first.
For this purpose, Mukhyamantri Antyodaya Parivar Utthan Yojana has been started. Under this, Antyodaya Melas were organized and families with an annual income of less than Rs. 1.80 lakh were identified and invited to the fairs. To provide employment opportunities to the members of these families and to start self-employment, loan facility is being given under various schemes. He said that the target of the state government is to make the annual income of these families at least Rs 1.80 lakh.
