This was stated by the Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur while presiding over the review meeting of Chief Minister Helpline held here today.Chief Minister said that all the complaints received in the Jan Manch programme organized throughout the State would also be transferred to Chief Minister Helpline so as to ensure its close and effective monitoring for their speedy disposal. He said that presently all the complaints received in the Chief Minister’s Office were being displayed on the Chief Minister Helpline and were being redressed promptly.Jai Ram Thakur said that a Command Control Centre would be established soon for making the Chief Minister Sewa Sanklap Helpline more effective and user friendly. He said that Chief Minister's Dash Board would also be established at the earliest and a team of officers would visit Gujarat for studying the model so that it could be made more effective. He said that the service would prove a boon to the people of the State for speedy redressal of their grievances.He said that with the operationalization of Chief Minister’s Dashboard, he would be himself able to have first hand information of various complaints and grievances besides progress in their redressal.

Chief Minister said that positive stories regarding effective redressal of public grievances should be highlighted in the right perspective so that people could be motivated to use this platform for resolving of their various issues.
