CM Fadnavis

Nagpur: In a decision taken by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the government employees whose headquarters are in rural areas will have to stay in rural areas only. The move is aimed at providing qualitative facilities and services to rural folks that too in stipulated timeframe. A circular in this regard has been issued by Chief Minister’s Secretariat on September 20.

It is now mandatory for government employees working in rural areas and deriving House Rent Allowance to stay in their respective headquarters and discharge their duties properly. Hence, the Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule has decided to spend a day and night in a village on September 28. Therefore, it has now become mandatory for government employees to stay at headquarters where the Guardian Minister is staying in the village.

On September 28, Bawankule will inspect the government facilities being provided to villagers during his day and night stay. The minister will also interact with villagers and listen to their problems. Therefore, the government employees whose headquarters are in rural areas will have to be present in headquarters and make available all necessary records, the District Collector Sachin Kurve said in a press release.
