After recovering from Covid-19 infection, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday resumed his work by presiding over a high-level meeting of senior officers of various departments at his residence in Chandigarh.
In the meeting, he reviewed the progress of various schemes and programmes besides issuing necessary directions to the officers concerned. Various decisions like planning a film city in Pinjore, hiring drones to check illegal mining, making Agri malls functional among others were also taken in the meeting.
While reviewing the arrangement for the procurement of kharif crops in the State, Khattar directed that every farmer registered on the “Meri Fasal Mera Byora” portal should be asked to provide dates for bringing their produce to the mandi of their choice.
Farmers should be asked whether they should be paid directly or through the arthias. He directed the officers to make adequate arrangements for the purchase of farmers' produce in the mandis across the State. It should be ensured that farmers do not face any inconvenience, he added.
The Chief Minister also directed that the Parivar Pehchan Patra (PPP) programme be linked with HRMS. He said that PPP is a unique initiative of the State Government under which each family in the State is being provided a unique identity.
He said that PPP would ensure that people get the benefit of various welfare schemes and programmes at their doorstep. He said that this would not only save their precious time but also ensure transparency in the service delivery.
The Chief Minister directed to expedite the work of preparing property IDs in all Urban Local Bodies of the State for the convenience of people in property related works. He also reviewed the functioning of Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) and Haryana Shehri Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) and directed to take steps to further enhance their receipts.
Khattar directed to prepare a plan to develop a film city at Pinjore. He said that Haryana is appropriate for film production as hundreds of beautiful locations are available in the State.
It may be recalled that Haryana Film Policy also envisages a Film City to be developed in public-private-partnership mode so that the people associated with the world of cinema can operate from a single place.
