Taking matters into his own hands
The Patna District Magistrate (DM) Sanjay Kumar Aggarwal on Sunday took up the job of a clerk and suggested a method to reduce time for completing the work while he was reviewing the functioning of the lower level of administration. He went for a two-hour visit to the legal cell of the Secretariat and found that 375 cases of stamp refund were pending. To dispose of these cases, it would take almost two years.


Getting to the bottom of things
The DM  was keen to know why there are so much back logging of work and hence he took matters into his own hand. He decided to visit various sections of administration and offices. During the visit, the DM came across an employee who appeared over-aged while one of her certificates, alleged to be forged, stated that she was 55 years old. Aggarwal has instructed officials to constitute a medical board to verify her age, the statement said.


Instructions passed on to review
The DM has now decided to visit different sections of district administration once a week to boost and improve the work culture at lower level. This won’t be conducted only by him, but he has ordered Block, District and Circle officers to do the same every Tuesday and review the work. Mr Aggarwal came into limelight recently as he was awarded by the Election Commission of India for best Electoral practices during his tenure as the DM of Gaya.
