The Department of Health and Family Welfare (DoHFW) recently concluded its “Special Campaign 3.0” focusing on cleanliness and the timely disposal of pending matters across its Headquarters, Attached and Subordinate Offices, Autonomous Bodies, and CPSE throughout the country. The primary aims of the campaign included reducing backlogs, embedding cleanliness practices, fortifying internal monitoring, enhancing officer training in record management, and transitioning to digital records for superior management.
The campaign, spanning from 1st October to 31st October 2023, placed considerable emphasis on the field offices of DoHFW, which embarked on multiple activities under the campaign’s umbrella.
Both Shri Sudhansh Pant, Secretary (HFW), and Shri Elangbam Robert Singh, Joint Secretary and the Nodal Officer of the campaign, regularly reviewed the proceedings to ensure its effective rollout.
Progress updates were consistently posted on the SCDPM portal (https://scdpm.nic.in) managed by the Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances (DARPG).
Some notable achievements during this period include the disposal of 224 references from MPs, addressing 3,260 public grievances, and reviewing 22,454 physical files of which 8,621 were discarded. The department also organized 1,787 cleanliness drives across various offices. A significant 35,268 sq. ft. of office space was reclaimed, and the sale of scrap materials generated a revenue of £13,70,211.
