Departments like minorities affairs, higher education, revenue and irrigation have fared poorly in the outcome based monitoring of ‘Utkarsh’ the Chief Minister’s e- dashboard. In comparison, rural development, forest, women empowerment and child development and power departments have performed appreciably.
In a letter directed to senior officials of different departments, the chief secretary (CS) Utpal Kumar Singh has asked the heads of the departments who have not performed well on the ‘Utkarsh’ dashboard to make their Key Performance Indicators (KPI) outcome based and make their departments more oriented towards the issues of general public. The CS has said that the departments should divide their annual targets on monthly basis and undertake constant review of the progress made. He added that while setting up the targets, the factors like meteorological indicators, availability of budge and approval of the projects should be kept in mind. The CS stressed on outcome based monitoring and regular review of information made available on ‘Utkarsh’.
In an effort to bring in transparency in governance and speeding up delivery, the ‘Utkarsh’ was launched on December 2018.
‘Utkarsh’ is an acronym for Uttarakhand Achieving Results in Systematic and Holistic Way and it provides the real time data about the schemes being executed on the ground.
