The deputy commissioner’s office in Darrang district of Assam from now onward will act just like the style that has been practiced in Prime Minister’s Office especially in matters of public grievances redressing.

This toll free no will kept ready to receive and record any genuine grievance from the public and its subsequent disposal.
An innovative technology driven mechanism including implementation of MIS to track the action taken for each and every grievance recorded and SMS delivery system will also be put in place for convenience of the public.
This was stated before media by Pankaj Chakravarty, additional deputy commissioner who heads the composition of the new public grievances cell at the deputy commissioner’s office .
He further stated that the new mechanism has been placed into service under the guidance and supervision of deputy commissioner Ghanashyam Dass with the primary objectives of timely disposal of the complaints and ensuring action being taken on each case of genuine ground followed by its monthly review for the purpose of tracking the progress of the same.
Meanwhile talking to Northeast Now a conscious circle of retired government servants have welcome the decision of the new deputy commissioner to rejuvenate the grievance redress mechanism which has been already in practice from Dispur to district or subdivision.
