The chief minister’s office has set targets for major departments for 2016-17, as part of their key result area (KRA) tasks.

This includes redevelopment of the government colony at Bandra and the Worli dairy, digitisation and an update of land records.

It also includes an at least partial realisation of the Rs 1 lakh crore investment from Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) signed during the Make In India week early this year.

The tasks set for this year were recently communicated to all the departments.

“We have set up online modules for all the departments with about 15 tasks each to be completed under the KRA,” said an official in the CMO.

“The targets are set by chief secretary Swadheen Kshatriya and finalised by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis after they are proposed by the departments,” he said.

“The CM reviews the targets and their implementation of major departments every three months,” added the official.

“The confidential report of the performance of the administrative heads (secretaries) is directly linked with the KRA performance,” the official added.

The public works department has been asked to expedite the plans of redevelopment of the Bandra government colony and Worli dairy in Mumbai.

Both fall in prime real estate and redevelopment will help the government unlock value of the land.

For instance, the government colony in Bandra is spread across 93 acres and can help fetch the government thousands of crores through commercial exploitation of the land.

The department has also been directed to set the target for the completion of the state highways and their upgrade on deferred payments and annuity methods.

The revenue department has been tasked with cent per cent e-mutation of land records, besides finalising the policy for conversion of land from Class II to Class I under the ease-of-doing-business policy.

It has also been directed to create multiple e-payment gateways for land revenue payments.

It has also been directed to draft a law for the security of tenants to entitle them for farm loans/crop insurance.

Mutation is the process of updating land records, including changes in ownership after transfer or sale.
