New Delhi: From top level appointments in government to other key orders from the Personnel Ministry, all these things will now be available to people on a first-of-its-kind mobile application developed by the Centre.
Besides these, over 4,900 IAS officers working across the country will be able to access details of their Annual Performance Appraisal Reports (APAR), Immovable Property Returns (IPR), postings, domestic and foreign training, among others, at their finger tip.
Union Minister Jitendra Singh today launched the mobile app–Employees Online (EO)– at a function attended by Bhaskar Khulbe, Secretary to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, B P Sharma, Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) and Rajiv Kumar, Establishment Officer, among others.
“The application is one more step towards transparency and e-governance. It will also check on the number of repeated RTI applications filed by citizens to seek governance-related information as most of the details will be put online for public in a real-time basis,” said Singh, Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions.
The application will provide details of all senior-level appointment orders in the government including those of secretaries as soon as they are approved by the Appointments Committee of Cabinet led by Modi.
“It will put an end to all kind of speculation as far as appointments are concerned. The application will help in a greater way to all the IAS officers and common people as they will be able to access all the information related to Personnel Ministry through it,” said Kumar, the Establishment Officer.
