It may be mentioned that most departments forms a plan. One is a short-term plan in which all tasks are implemented on an immediate basis within a short span of time. The departments also prepare long term plans that may take around five years or more.

The departments have been asked to submit their reports latest by the first week of the next month. The Chief Secretary would be sending all the reports to the Chief Minister. She will look into each and every report to create a roadmap that would make the process of completion of the projects smooth. Sources in Nabanna said the CM may fix time periods by which every project has to be completed after going through the reports.
