The Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) will hold a meeting of 22 departments and heads of certain public sector undertakings on November 3 for expediting the functioning of the commission.
The decision was made at its ninth meeting here on Tuesday considering the fact that the department and institution-level committees formed for supporting the commission were not functioning efficiently.
A workshop would be conducted for the heads of various training institutes on November 13 for improving the quality of the capacity-building programmes of government officials. The workshop would be conducted with the cooperation of the Administrative College of India, Hyderabad.
A one-day seminar would be conducted on December 13 for reviewing the enforcement of welfare laws.
