The file disposal rate continues to be dismal in Haryana with the departments headed by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Home Minister Anil Vij accounting for over 54 per cent of over 7,300 files that have been pending for over 300 days.
The data accessed by The Tribune showed that there were over 4,000 files (2,000 each) in the departments held by Khattar and Vij followed by Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala, whose departments had over 1,200 files pending.

Taking cognisance of the gravity of the issue, Khattar has now served 15-day ultimatum on Administrative Secretaries to dispose of the files.
“It has been brought to my notice that several files are pending in the departments of which some are pending for over one year. All Administrative Secretaries may scrutinise the pending files and ensure that they are disposed of in the next fortnight. I will be monitoring the clearance of the pendency of files,” Khattar said in an order to the Administrative Secretaries.
