JAGATSINGHPUR: Collector Yamini Sarangi on Wednesday asked the district officials of different line departments to dispose of pending files and respond to the letters of the State Government.  Speaking during a convergence meeting at the Collectorate, she directed all the district officials, Block Development Officers (BDOs) and Tehsildars to clear the pending files for smooth implementation of  welfare programmes.

Sources said delay in disposing of files, non-response to  Government directions and wrong dispatch of letters have delayed the implementation of different programmes in the district. This apart, beneficiaries were also debarred from the benefits of welfare schemes.
 During the review meeting, it was found that Chandan Sethy of Tirtol had sought the intervention of the National Commission of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe to resolve his land dispute. On October 28, the Research Officer of the commission had asked the district administration to conduct an inquiry and submit a report over the issue. But after two months, no action has been taken in this regard.
Collector directed the Sub-Collector to act on the directions of the the National Commission of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe over land dispute.
