To check overloaded vehicles under which vehicles would be checked by officers of the Regional Transport Authority (RTA), Excise and Taxation, Police and other departments.

Chandigarh, Dec 24–The Haryana Government is working on a new policy to check overloaded vehicles under which vehicles would be checked by officers of the Regional Transport Authority (RTA), Excise and Taxation, Police and other departments. They would be allocated fixed area. Such vehicles as incur repeated challans, would be impounded.
This was disclosed by the Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, while speaking to media persons in Kurukshetra, today. The state government celebrates December 25 as Good Governance Day. This year too, many online services are being launched for the convenience of the people. These would benefit the general public, he added.

        Referring to the International Gita Mahatsov, the Chief Minister said the government had given the festival international face and the International Gita Mahotsav 2018 would be celebrated at the level of Kumbh Mela to ensure participation of different countries, institutions and general public.

          Mr Manohar Lal said he had met 10,000 to 15,000 people at Janata Darbars held in 22 districts, redressed their grievances and fulfilled their demands. Many proposals and schemes came up at these darbars relating to policy matters which could be decided only after discussions in Chandigarh.

The present government has worked to change the system. We have also implemented the policy for online transfers of teachers under which 95 per cent teachers are satisfied. Haryana is the first state to introduce teachers’ online transfer policy. This unique policy is being appreciated throughout the country and eight states have decided to follow suit, he added.

    Recruitment is made on merit basis and now no candidate needs any slip from any minister or MLA for getting government job. Even party workers have been told to get their children educated and make them capable of getting jobs on merit.

    The state government is also working to evolve a system under which a person going to any department with a complaint would get his problem redressed there. After registering his complaint in the department, he would be provided with receipt so that accountability of the officer could be fixed. We have made several achievements but there is still a lot to be done, he added.
In a reply to a question, the Chief Minister said the process of constructing a new bus-stand at Pipli was apace. The work of transfer of land has been completed and the construction work on the ROB at Jhansa road is also being carried out at a fast pace.

         In Kurukshetra district, the administration would take the problem of traffic seriously and make the district pollution-free by generating awareness about battery-operated autos. To divert the traffic from Kurukshetra, work on the bypass from the Patiala-Haridwar National Highway has been accelerated.

    In reply to another question, the Chief Minister said the matter of removal of 11 people from the Women Studies Centre at Kurukshetra University would be examined and a final decision would be taken after facts were known. The decision to grant University College status of department would also be taken after proper feedback, he added

         Referring to the proposal to include Pipli in the Municipal Council, Thanesar, Mr Manohar Lal said Pipli would remain in the Ladwa Assembly constituency but the proposal to include it in Thanesar Municipal Council would be discussed. After obtaining the consent of all, it would be taken to the Cabinet.

        Under the Development Plan 2031, two new sectors would be developed in Ladwa. Referring to the plan of developing Kurukshetra as a pilgrimage and tourist destination under the Srikrishna Circuit, he said tourist sites under this scheme would be developed soon.

    Replying to a question regarding Dadupur Nalvi, he said in this case, a proposal for amendment in the Act had been sent to the Central Government. Haryana is the first state to grant pension to journalists and the scheme has been appreciated by all states, he added.
