New Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday announced his government would bring in the Right to Services Bill and introduce a citizens’ charter so that the common man will get services in a time-bound manner.
“There will be legal recourse whereby citizens will be empowered to initiate action against erring government officials. On the lines of provisions of Right to Information, under the Right to Services, tribunals and upper authorities will be established to pursue cases,” Fadnavis said, after chairing the maiden Cabinet meeting at the Mantralaya.
Fadnavis said a committee headed by state Chief Secretary Swadhin Khastriya has been formed. The panel will submit a report within a month to the government. “It will be our effort to table Right to Services Bill in the state legislature during the winter session. It is one of the crucial steps to provide transparent, efficient and pro-development government. The government is committed to inclusive growth,” he said.
