Adopt more empathetic, responsive and inclusive approach of admin: Vice-Prez

Adopt more empathetic, responsive and inclusive approach of admin: Vice-Prez

New Delhi, July 11 (UNI) Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday asked IAS officers to look upon people as active agents of transforming India, not merely as ‘target groups’ or ‘beneficiaries’ as they are called.

Addressing IAS Officers of 2016 batch posted as Assistant Secretaries in Government of India here, Mr Naidu said unless this approach becomes an integral part of our planning and implementation process, the programmes will not succeed.

He asked the young officers to make good use of the opportunity and understand the role of Union government in formulation of policies and programs. 'You belong to a civil service that was conceived of as a steel frame of our country by the great visionary unifier and the first Home Minister of independent India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel,' he added.

Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region (I/C), Prime Minister’s Office, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh and other dignitaries were present on the occasion.

Saying that streamlining service delivery and effective, transparent, people-centred good governance were the need of the hour, the Vice-President stressed on the need to address challenges in delivering basic services to the common man.

'Aim at greater ‘efficiency’ and ‘effectiveness’ and build a culture of ‘evaluation’ and constant ‘learning’ in our governance systems,' he added.

The Vice-President asked officers to adopt a more empathetic, responsive and inclusive approach of administration. It should be an approach that cares for women, differently abled, the marginalised and those who have been left out of developmental process, he said, according to a release.

Mr Naidu asked officers to view every programme as a “societal mission” and implement them with dedication. There has to be a genuine commitment at all levels of administration to spread the benefits of democratic governance to all sections in society without any discrimination in the spirit of the principle “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas,” he added.
