By May, 1,470 complaints addressed through hearing on 107 Democracy Days: CMO

Mumbai: The Maharashtra government on Monday claimed it has no grievances pending from common people with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, which come to him as part of the monthly Democracy Day proceedings.

Democracy Day is organised every month at Mantralaya where people approach the CM directly. As per the procedure, a grievance is first directed to the Collector, and if it remains unsolved, it is forwarded to the divisional commissioner. If there is no solution there, it goes to the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO).

“By May 2018, 107 Democracy Days have been observed at Mantralaya. Through proceedings in all these days, 1,470 grievances have been solved,” an official at the CMO said.

On Monday, the government held its 108th Democracy Day hearing, where the CM received 11 complaints. The complainants from Satara, Vasai, Kandivli, Pune, Thane, Jalgaon, Buldhana, and Vengurla took up their issues directly with Mr. Fadnavis.

Meanwhile, the Rural Development department has bagged four national awards. The awards are for implementing India’s first online teacher transfers, intra-district teacher transfers, cadre management, and for effective implementation of liability register system, which ensures transparency in handling of zilla parishad funds, tenders, contractor appointments, quality of work, and depositing money directly in the contractor’s account through online transactions.
