Monitoring cell advisor visits Raina, Jamalpur to interact with beneficiaries
Kolkata: Colonel Diptangshu Chowdhury, advisor of the monitoring Cell constituted by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to take stock of various government schemes, visited Raina and Jamalpur to interact with the beneficiaries and to listen to their complaints.
Colonel Chowdhury took a detailed stock of the social schemes run by the Mamata Banerjee government. He examined various aspects as to how the schemes were being implemented in the district.
This is for the first time in the history of the state that a representative deployed by the Chief Minister is visiting the districts to ensure that beneficiaries in the remote areas can reap the benefit of various government schemes.
It has been a huge success for the monitoring cell as Bankura District Magistrate Umashankar S attended a public interaction program in the name of Sahamarmi Sabha in a remote village of Taldangra Block in Bankura to address a grievance redressal and to perform a social audit on schemes and beneficiaries. The villagers also took active part in the event. The Chief Minister has given a platform where the beneficiaries of various government schemes can directly converse with the Chief Minister's office, sharing their feedback and suggestions for the improvement of the delivery mechanism.
Once a beneficiary from the districts raises his/her issue with the Chief Minister's office through email at email@example.com, it will be thoroughly examined and replied to within 10 days.
One of the main objectives of the initiative is to bridge the gap between the beneficiaries and the government, thereby ensuring a smooth implementation of all the schemes. The focus of the move is to reach out to the marginalised beneficiaries in particular.
The monitoring cell has already addressed many other issues. The grievances of two widows at Purulia's Bagmundi have been addressed within two days.
