He told Express that a decision was taken in this connection at the Cabinet meeting and it would cover 152 services of 11 departments .

I visited Bihar to study the outcome of one such act where only 53 services are brought under its ambit, and I am happy with its results, the minister said.

Sureshkumar also disclosed that the scheme would be introduced as part on an experimental basis in four taluks of four revenue divisons each in Bangalore, Mysore, Gulbarga and Belgaum. “From April next, it will be launched across the state,” he added.
