ITANAGAR, Jan 10 - Arunachal Pradesh Cabinet has approved two bills to provide hassle-free public services and redressal of grievances in a time-bound manner, and to monitor the mushrooming of private educational institutes in the State.
The Arunachal Pradesh Right to Public Service Bill, approved by the Cabinet yesterday, will be tabled in coming Assembly session starting from January 14, government spokesman Bamang Felix said in a statement today.
Concerned over the prevailing scenario in which officials at various levels delay and deny services to common people, the Cabinet viewed that the process of governance, particularly on public services delivery system, has to be overhauled and improved, the statement said.
For this reason, it said, the State Government has brought the bill which intends to guarantee time-bound delivery of services by government to citizens and to initiate a mechanism for punishing errant public servants.
This legislation would reduce corruption and increase transparency and accountability while ensuring timely delivery of public services.
Another major decision that the Cabinet took was to frame regulations for effective and proper monitoring of functioning of private higher educational institutions in the State.
The Cabinet took serious note of mushrooming of private universities in the State and the lack of effective mechanism to monitor their activities, the release said.
In this backdrop, the Cabinet approved Arunachal Pradesh Private Educational Institutions (Regulatory Commission) Bill 2016, which will also be tabled in coming Assembly session. � PTI
