Meghalaya cabinet approves Right to Public Services Bill

Addressing the issue over delay in government services and punishing the corrupt officials, a proposed legislation has been approved by the Meghalaya Cabinet.

Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said, in the upcoming autumn session to be held from November 5th, the Meghalaya Rights to Public Services Bill, 2020 will be placed in the Assembly.

The Chief Minister said, “The objective of coming up with the Bill is to ensure that a specific timeline is given for any kind of service that the government is providing to the people like caste certificate, driving license and others”.

With the placement of this Act, if there is delay in delivery of services then the officials in position will be punished.

As per the Chief Minister, this step is taken to improve the service delivery system from its roots.
