Central level administrative review meet to be held on May 8, CM to take stock of progress of projects
Kolkata: The Central level administrative review meeting of the state government is going to be held on May 8.
The meeting will be held at Nabanna Sabhaghar. Sources said that the meeting will start from 1.30 pm. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will be taking stock of the progress of different projects in the state.
This is the second Central level administrative review meeting that is going to be held in Nabanna Sabhaghar. The first meeting was held here on September 4 in 2017 and on the same day, the state-of-the-art auditorium adjacent to Nabanna was inaugurated.
It may be mentioned that before the venue of the meeting was shifted to Nabanna Sabhaghar, the Central level administrative review meeting used to be held at Town Hall. It may be mentioned that the new venue, with a seating capacity of around 1,000 people, is more spacious compared to Town Hall.
It may be mentioned that the Chief Minister visits every district to take stock of the progress of different projects and holds district level administrative review meetings. She also holds the Central level administrative review meeting in Kolkata.
Ministers and top brass of all departments, senior administrative and police officers and senior officers from districts will be present in the Central level administrative review meeting.
The Chief Minister will take stock of the progress of work undertaken by each department. She will also discuss different issues of the departments and the projects taken up by them.
It may be recalled that after the last Central level administrative review meeting in September 2017, the Chief Minister had raised her concern over the thirty thousand pending court cases, which was leading to a huge amount of recurring cost to the state government. She had also directed the concerned departments to take necessary steps in this regard.
Meanwhile, the meeting of the state plan for the 2019-20 financial year was held in the state secretariat on Thursday. The meeting was led by Chief Secretary Malay De. Senior officials of all the departments attended the meeting, in which there was preliminary discussion on planning of each of the departments for the next financial year.
