Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das today said bringing down government departments to 31 from 43 would not only save administrative expenditure but also make running the administration easier.

“Bringing down the departments to 31 will save expenditure and that could be spent on common people,” said Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das.

“Bringing down the departments to 31 will save expenditure and that could be spent on common people,” Das told reporters here.

Downsizing and reorganisation of Jharkhand government departments from 43 to 31 is one of the two key initiatives that attracted the attention of the Prime Minister s Office, an official statement had said yesterday.

The restructuring would also help investors, Das said.

On the PMO asking the NITI Ayog to circulate “best practice” of Jharkhand so that it could be replicated in other states, the Chief Minister attributed it to teamwork.

Das said he had a desire to make Jharkhand a role model and “now we can say Jharkhand has become a role model in the country”.

“I have been repeatedly saying that Jharkhand has an important role in making India economic super power and the state is discharging its role,” he said.

Another key initiative Jharkhand has taken is lateral entry of technocrats and advisors as special secretaries and state PSUs MDs.
