Women’s safety focus area of CMGGA programme

Turning around losses in Haryana Roadways, improving tax collection also on agenda

Higher education, transport, women’s safety and property tax would be the focus areas of the Chief Minister’s Good Governance Associates (CMGGAs) programme of Haryana government this year.

Credited for making systematic reforms in education through Saksham Haryana and creation of a single online platform called Antyodaya Saral by providing more than 491 services across 35 departments at the click of a mouse, the programme which was launched in 2016 aims at ensuring transparency, accountability and efficiency in service delivery by leveraging young talents from across the country in the form of CMGGAs. In its fourth year, the programme would focus on turning around losses in Haryana Roadways, making the police more accessible to women, improving tax collection and helping universities improve the quality of education.

Besides this, the new batch of associates who will take over on July 21, will work on improving the already implemented Antodaya Saral and Saksham Haryana programmes.

Apart from implementing the State government’s flagship programmes, the associates also pick up an issue of their own choice, pertinent in the district, and provide innovative solutions to address it. If their pilot project is successful, these district initiatives get scaled up as a State-wide module.

Programme Director of CMGGAs, Rakesh Gupta, said, applications from across the country were invited for the programme and 25 young men and women thus selected received orientation on functioning of the government and work areas. “It was an experiential learning programme with 97% retention of graduates into the social and development sector post completion,” Mr. Gupta said.

CM Manohar Lal Khattar said that personal interaction with all the batches in the last three years had helped improve governance and gauge new ideas.

Meanwhile, applications are invited for the 2019-20 batch and the last date for submitting the application is June 17.
