The officials who were responsible for framing rules based on laws enacted eight to nine years ago in the assembly will have to face action, he cautioned. He said that the subject committees should be ready to take disciplinary action against the erring officials.  

]He said that the subject committees should also ensure that under rule 288 the scrutiny of the rules framed was being held properly in the subject committees and remaining, if any, are completed in a timely manner. After every assembly session, the subject committees should hold a review and ensure all the works mandated was done properly.

All the departments that were bound to frame rules should ensure that the work was done in two months at the chief secretary level.
