Sixteen government departments will present their vision for the next five years before the state Cabinet on Wednesday.
The vision documents comprise plans and ways of implementing them. Ministers and secretaries of every department will make 30-minute digital presentations. The remaining departments will present their vision in the next meeting. The seven to eight hour-affair will make Wednesday’s meeting the longest weekly Cabinet meeting in recent times.
“It’s a brainchild of CM Ashok Chavan, who wants all ministers to be involved in making governance better,” said a senior bureaucrat, requesting anonymity.
“Making presentations on a common platform will help ministers understand what other departments plan to do. It will also ensure transparency and encourage the Cabinet contributes inputs.” Chavan is expected to kick start the reforms with these vision documents. After the Cabinet’s approval, all departments will begin work.
