BANGALORE: Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda has appealed to senior officials and various department heads to give priority for speedy disposal of files and petitions submitted by people seeking redressal of their grievances.

At an interaction meeting with senior officials on the effective implementation of the Karnataka Guarantee of Services Act, which was passed recently, Gowda said, “The speedy disposal of files would enhance transparency in administration and curb corruption.”

He said the state’s officials, who had been sent on a study tour to Bihar and Gujarat which have implemented the Act, have returned and submitted a report.

He also sought co-operation from the officials concerned for the effective implementation of the Act in Karnataka. He said his government was committed to good governance and various steps have been taken towards achieving the goal.

In this regard, the Karnataka Guarantee of Services to Citizens Act, 2011, has been enacted and rules are being notified.

The state government has already notified about 152 services of 11 departments and the pilot project will be launched on March 1, 2012, in each taluk of four revenue divisions and one revenue office in BBMP Bangalore.
