Multi day in the wake of Rising Kashmir revealed about objections coming back to the Grievance Cell, the State organization under Governor Narinder Nath Vohra formally settled the Governor’s Grievance cell by a request issued by the General Administration Department (GAD).
A request issued on Monday by the GAD read, “Authorize is thus concurred to the renaming of J&K Government Grievance Cell as Governor’s Grievance Cell.”
The move comes multi day in the wake of Rising Kashmir distributed a news report, ‘Starting over at Governor’s Grievance Cell’ that point by point how the complaints professed to have been discarded by the Grievance Cell were being re-sent by common people citing dissatisfaction.
After the report was published on Monday, GAD issued an order for renaming as well as establishment of the Governor’s Grievance Cell.
“…it is ordered that: Governor’s Grievance Cell shall function both at Jammu and Srinagar under the overall supervision of the Principal Secretary to Governor under the administrative control of Governor’s Secretariat,” the order read.
As per the order, the staff working in the J&K Government Grievance Cell provided by the GAD would continue to perform duties in the Governor’s Grievance Cell while the cell would continue to be serviced by the Project Management Unit (PMU).
The PMU would be headed by Additional Secretary, Inam-uI-Haq Siddiqui, who is re-designated as Project Director, Governor’s Grievance Cell.
Meanwhile, after the Rising Kashmir report, a meeting chaired by the Governor was also held for reviewing the functioning of the Governor’s Grievance Cell.
Governor N N Vohra has now been briefed on the functioning of the cell, which even after his visit last month had not been renamed as the Governor’s Grievance Cell.
