The Chief Secretary encouraged the officers to continue strengthening MSME sector as being significant for attaining the goal of Aatmanirbhar Bharat and to popularise local products. 

Further the ideals of ‘Ease of Living’ and ‘Ease of Doing Business’ also needs to be focussed upon. He called upon them to focus on ending mindless compliances and those laws or rules which are outdated. 

He remarked that in a time of unparalleled reforms, there is no scope for over regulation and undue restrictions. So time has come to reduce the compliance burden (RCB) on common citizens as much as possible, he added.

Besides the meeting held focused deliberations on incorporation of  themes like Vocal for Local and use of new  emerging technologies. It was decided that districts being the fulcrum of development should be given more autonomy in utilization of funds through PRI's to enable their unrestrained growth and progress.

He asked them to integrate the helplines related to women and children like 181 and 1098 with 112 Emergency Response Support System. It was further made out to create women hubs in each district and women exclusive shopping centres, women tourist guides and taxi drivers for their greater role in such men-dominated activities. 

Promotion of women SHGs for carrying out their entrepreneurial activities was also promulgated as a priority area for the budget. Hostel for working women and pink bus service to be used as transport was also discussed in this meeting.

With regard to Health sector the Chief Secretary declared that whole adult population should be screened for Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) besides children and girls for malnutrition and anaemia respectively.

For skilling of youth the standardization across skill ecosystem came under discussion.
