The district authority has initiated ‘Star Department Award’ programme to assess the performance of government departments and to felicitate the ones performing well.

The programme is the brainchild of Deputy Commissioner (DC) Sonal Goel who claimed that it would create healthy competition among the departments. It would also give recognition to efficient officers and the best departments at the district level.

PWD and Forest Minister Rao Narbir Singh launched the programme by releasing its booklet at a programme held in the mini secretariat here on Thursday.

The DC said, “Awards will be given in three categories. The first category is for infrastructural development which includes PWD, NHAI, Irrigation, HUDA, Roadways and Municipal.

“The second category is for social development and community engagement and DSWO, Agriculture, Red Cross, Housing Board, SC-BC Nigam etc will be included in it.

“The third category is for integrated economic development which includes Haryana Rural Livelihood Mission, Food and Supplies, HAFED,” said Sonal.

She maintained that departmental performance would be assessed on various parameters like their CM Window performance, progress on CM’s announcements, collaboration with different departments, innovation in existing scheme of work, digitisation of records, achieving of monthly targets in comparison to their annual targets and performance on other digital platforms of the government like SARAL, Harpath, Swachh Maps etc.

“The departments will be honoured with one award per category except in the third one where two departments will be awarded. The departments will be able to apply online for the award from July 16 and nominations will be received till the second week of August. All departments have already been told about the concept at a common workshop,” Sonal said.
