CM pats staff for wiping out revenue deficit
CHIEF MINISTER Mulayam Singh Yadav, while announcing reorganisation of the Stamp and Tax Registration cadre, said the entire department would be modernised/ computerised.
He said paucity of funds would not be allowed to hamper modernisation. He also said UP was the only State, which had freed itself from revenue deficits.
He said the Central Planning Commission had appreciated UP’s contribution in arranging resources and had approved Rs 19,000 crore for the budget, which was second only to West Bengal.
Congratulating all those involved in revenue collection work, the CM said the State was able to wipe out revenue deficit after a long time and now there was enough money to focus on development and construction work.
The chief minister was addressing a two-day bi-annual conference of the UP Stamp and Registration Officers’ Association at the local Ganna Sansthan Auditorium here on Tuesday.
He said the Tax Registration Department was second only to the Sales Tax Department, as far as revenue collection was concerned, as its tally stood at 104 per cent.
He said earlier UP’s financial condition was precarious and it was adversely affecting development work in the State, but employees of the department performed their duties well and collected Rs 3150 crore in revenue, while the department’s expenses stood at Rs 40 crore.
Assuring the association to consider its demands in a sympathetic manner, Yadav said the Government had targeted to wipe out revenue deficit by the year 2009, but the employees of the department achieved the target in the current year itself. The government was getting great help in carrying out development work all over the state from the resources arranged by the efforts of the department, he pointed out.
Appreciating the efforts of the minister of the deparment Hari Shankar Tewari, he said the work culture had improved under his leadership.
He expressed his happiness that no complaint was brought to his notice against the work of the Stamp and Tax Registration Department.
The CM and the minister concerned were presented a memento each on behalf of the association.
