Haryana chief minister M L Khattar directed deputy commissioners (DC) in the state to ensure that every farmer got compensation for the damages caused to their crops due to the recent unseasonal rains and hailstorms by April 30, 2015.

Presiding over a review meeting with DCs and principal secretaries of various departments late Friday last evening, Khattar directed the DCs and other officials to meet people from 11am to 12noon everyday in an open hall.

They were also told to ensure timely disposal of the complaints received at the CM's window and review them regularly. If any complaint was received against any employee, it should not be sent to him for investigation, he said and asked them to review the arrangements made for flood control in their respective districts.

The officials were also told to be punctual. Biometric attendance system would be started in a phased manner in some offices of the state government from May 1, he said.
