BJP Government Ignored the ND Agrawal committee report

GOA:  In a clear indication that the BJP-government has ignored the N D Agrawal committee report on simplification of administrative procedures, the department of public grievances said that it has no record of the committee’s recommendations. In reply to an RTI query, director of public grievances Shivaji Dessai said that documentation about the acceptance and rejection of the report’s recommendations are also unavailable.

The department of public grievances had appointed a committee headed by former South Goa collector N D Agrawal in July 2014 to recommend steps to improve governance and administration. The committee submitted its report, Simplification of Procedures for Effective Delivery of Public Services, in June 2015, to then chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar.

Agrawal applied for the information in December 2019, but got the reply after nearly six months. Unable to find the information, the director of public grievances wrote to the under secretary for public grievances in February 2020 seeking information on the report.
