PARADIP, OCT 27, 2022
Paradip Port Authority (PPA) has earned over Rs. 4.3 crore so far from disposal of 900 tons of scrap during a short period of three weeks of the ongoing Special Swachhta Campaign 2.0.
During the ongoing campaign, the Port authorities have repaired the old furniture and donated those to schools. Also, by demolishing old buildings at the Port premises, Paradip Port has got half an acre of land which will be used for future purposes.
This apart, PPA has also set up an emergency ward in its hospital which will be inaugurated on October 31. Considering today’s need, an Ayurveda doctor has also been appointed in the hospital.
The Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways (MoPSW) has taken a number of initiatives under the ‘Special campaign for Disposal of Pending matters’ (SCDPM 2.0) of the Central government. The MoPSW has identified removing pendency and improving cleanliness as the key focus areas, which will result in better record management, improve work efficiencies, enhance transparency and contribute towards a sustainable future.
Special Campaign 2.0 seeks to institutionalize Swachhata and removal of pendency not only as one time best practices, but imbibing them as a matter of habit in the day to day functioning. In this phase, the number of campaign sites has been identified to include the remotest sites and offices that have the highest public interference in the country.
As stipulated in the SCDPM 2.0 guidelines, special focus is on field/outstation offices in addition to the Ministries/Departments and their attached/subordinate offices. All the major ports and subordinate/attached offices of the Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways are undertaking various efforts to remove pendency and improve cleanliness in their offices and their office compounds.
Various activities undertaken by the MoPSW and its various organisations under Swachata Campaign 2.0 in line with the basic spirit of the SCDPM 2.0 Campaign primarily aims to achieve the objective of efficiency, ease of doing business and better and faster decision-making by decluttering workplaces and getting rid of archaic rules and regulations.
