Shimla: Better inter-departmental coordination must be maintained to ensure that the cases in various Courts were resolved at the earliest so that the pace of development goes uninterrupted, Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur on November 9, 2021.
While presiding over a meeting with Administrative Secretaries and Advocate General regarding Court cases here, the Chief Minister said that the State Government has developed a ‘Litigation Monitoring Software ‘ and all the Court cases were being entered in this Software.
“Special priority must be given on cases with high stakes and related to ambitious projects. Administrative Secretaries must also keep a liaison and coordination with the office of Advocate General so that cases in Courts could be taken up at the earliest,” Thakur said.
He asserted that Court cases with regard to JOA (IT), JBT etc. must be expedited as this would benefit thousands of youth.
“Efforts should be made to vacate the stay on these recruitments and requested the Courts to settle the issues.”
The Chief Minister said that since several developmental projects were delayed due to various clearances and pending cases in the Courts, he directed the officers to work proactively to get the clearances from different Courts. He said that this would not only benefit the common people but also avoid price escalation. He directed the officers to hold regular meetings to monitor the status of cases.
Chief Secretary Ram Subhag Singh assured the Chief Minister that officers would work with greater coordination and dedication to meet the aspirations and expectations of the State Government.
Principal Secretary Home Rajneesh welcomed the Chief Minister and conducted the proceedings of the meeting.
