NEW DELHI: In a fresh missive, the Cabinet Secretariat on Wednesday asked ministries to submit “action taken” reports on all the orders received from the higher echelons, including the Prime Minister’s Office, and to provide details of compliance in a standard proforma as soon as possible.

“This is a follow-up of the government’s first order where it had asked Secretaries to take time-bound action on issues communicated to the ministries. The details will reveal the date of the receipt of the orders and how swift the action was taken,” a sources said.

The Cabinet Secretariat had earlier asked the ministries to cut down the time spent on inter-ministerial consultations in preparing inputs for Cabinet proposals.

It had set a two-week deadline on such consultation, saying that in cases where the ministries or departments failed to forward their comments to the sponsoring departments within two weeks, the sponsoring departments should mention the date on which the comments were sought.
