at 9:13 pm

New Delhi: Union Minister of State (Independent Charge)  Jitendra Singh today said that the Narendra Modi government has sought to give a new outlook to governance in the last 7 to 8 years.

He was addressing valedictory function of 3rd Capacity Building Programme for senior officers of Jammu & Kashmir Administrative Service (JKAS) here today.

The Minister said that all the reforms are not only governance reforms but they are also huge social reforms which will give the coming generations a level-playing field.

He said the intent of the Government became clear when soon after coming to power in May 2014, one of the first major decisions was to introduce self-attestation and do away with the practice of getting documents attested by gazetted officer.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said, since then the Modi government has done away with around 1500 rules, including abolishing interviews for recruitment.

He said that the Ministry of Personnel has streamlined the governance and made it timeline-oriented.

A total of 32 officers attended the programme from Union Territories of Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh.
