[New Delhi] PMO Introduces New Chapter In Grievance Redressal By Calling Grieved Complainants
MoS Dr. Jitendra Singh Personally Calls Up Complainants Who Lodged Grievances
The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions,Atomic Energy and Space,
Dr Jitendra Singh randomly called up on telephone as a part of the periodic exercise started by him to personally speak to complainants in order to confirm the redressal of their grievance and also to assess their level of satisfaction, The Minister also received some of the spontaneous responses from the complainants he called.
Shri Sanjay Sati from West Patel Nagar, New Delhi, working in the Department of Animal Husbandry said that he was overwhelmed by this experience. He said that he received calls from different officers in Department of Administrative Reforms & Grievances (ARPG), culminating in a final call from the Minister In-charge himself to ensure the redressal of his grievance relating to “Modified Assured Career Progression” (MACP).
Another complainant,
Shri Bharat Sarmalkar from Tilak Nagar, Chembur in Maharasthra, said that his Passport renewal case had been pending for the last three months and it was amazing that when he filed his grievance with ARPG, he received the new renewed passport within no time, followed by a phone call from the office and now a phone call from the Minister in-charge himself.
Shri Gyan Singh from Haiderpur, Delhi was thankful because since his retirement from DDA as a Staff Car Driver, he had been receiving only provisional pension and was denied the pension benefits due to non-regularization of suspension period during the service.
He said, he filed his complaint with the ARPG as last resort and not only his pension benefits were released, but he also received a phone call from ARPG confirming the same.
Dr Jitendra Singh said that in the last two years, not only the grievance redressal mechanism under the government had been made proactive, but there was also an attempt to reach out to complainants directly. The result of this, he said, was that before the present government came in, the number of grievances / complaints per year was only 2 lakh, which had in last two years gone up to over 6 lakh per year because of prompt and satisfactory redressal of most of the complaints.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, a mechanism has been evolved to review the status of grievance redressal on weekly basis and mostly the percentage of grievance redressal is more than 85% every week. Even in the current week ending on last working day of 19th August at 6:00 pm, out of 16890 complaints received, 16414 amounting to 97% had been disposed off.
Those of the complaints which remain unaddressed and for which sometimes there are reminders on the Social Media, he said, the actual reasons are either technical or subjective reasons of complaint which may not be amenable to response under existing rules and regulations.

Commitment to Peace is Intrinsically Ingrained In Our DNA:Indian Prime Minister

Indian P M In his Special Lecture at the University of the Sacred Heart,Says “Commitment to peace is Deeply ingrained in the DNA of Indian society. This commitment is far above international treaties or processes.”
Indian P M Narendra Modi Invited Japan To Work Together “Like a Lamp in the Dark.
He Said India and Japan should focus on shared values of democracy, development and peace.
Indian Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, has said that commitment to peace and non-violence is ingrained in the DNA of the Indian society. He was responding to questions from students after delivering a special lecture at the University of the Sacred Heart in Tokyo.
In reply to a question on how India could enhance the confidence of the international community as a non-NPT state, the Prime Minister said this commitment to peace that was intrinsic to Indian society, has significance far above any international treaties or processes. India is the land of Lord Buddha, who lived for peace, and spread the message of peace across the world, he said, adding that India had won its freedom through non-violent means. For thousands of years, India has believed in the principle of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – the whole world is our family, Shri Narendra Modi said. When we consider the whole world as our family, how can we even think of doing anything that would harm or hurt anyone, he said.
In response to another question, the Prime Minister called for India and Japan to focus on shared values of democracy, development, and peace, saying this effort would be similar to lighting a lamp in the dark. Illustrating his point, the Prime Minister said an intelligent person would fight darkness in a room not with a broom, sword or blanket, but with a small diya (earthen lamp). “If we light a lamp, we need not be scared of darkness,” the Prime Minister said.
Replying to a question on environment, the Prime Minister said India had, for centuries, a tradition of dialogue (sanvaad) with nature. People in India think of the whole universe as their family, the Prime Minister said, saying that children call the moon their uncle, and rivers are addressed as “Mother.” He asked the assembled students if they felt “climate change” was a correct terminology. He said that human beings had actually changed their “habits” leading to strife with nature. This strife with nature had caused problems, the Prime Minister said. He referred to a book – “Convenient Action” – that he had written on the subject, and invited students to read it online, if they were interested.
The Prime Minister invited the students to ask him questions on social media, saying he would be happy to answer them, and adding that he and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe were friends online as well.
Earlier, addressing the students at this all-women University, the Prime Minister said that if we have to understand different societies across the world, two things are important – their education system and their art and culture, which is why he had come to their University. Referring to the position held by women in Indian tradition and culture, he said that India had the concept of Goddesses, unlike most parts of the world, where God is usually referred to only as a Father. He also mentioned initiatives he had taken for education of the girl child while he was Chief Minister of Gujarat.
