The officials and staff will be available to receive grievances from the local residents and have them redressed quickly. the Minister said. The ward governance system, he pointed out, would do away with the present need for citizens to visit the circle or zonal offices and instead have their issues solved locally.

The new system would also ensure more effective participation of citizens in governance. “The ward governance is conceptualised in tune with Chief Minister K.Chandrashekhar Rao’s vision of decentralising governance and taking the administration close to the people,” said Tarak Rama Rao.

The Minister instructed the officials to form teams required to usher in the new concept and impart them with training for effective implementation. (Hydnow)
