Gangtok: Sikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang announced on Sunday that all Block Administrative Centres (BACs) in the state will soon have a dedicated public grievance cell. During his visit to West Sikkim, the Chief Minister interacted with the locals and emphasized the importance of setting up these cells to address the grievances of the people effectively.
Tamang highlighted that the establishment of public grievance cells in each BAC would serve as a platform for the local residents to express their concerns and seek redressal from the state government. By streamlining the grievance collection process, these cells aim to accelerate the resolution of various issues faced by the community.
“The public grievance cell will help speed up resolutions of various issues of the local people,” said Chief Minister Tamang, recognizing the significance of addressing the concerns of the citizens promptly and efficiently.
To ensure the smooth functioning of these cells, two employees will be assigned to each public grievance cell established across all BACs in Sikkim. This move is expected to enhance accessibility and streamline the process of grievance redressal.
Sikkim comprises 33 Block Administrative Centres according to official records. The establishment of public grievance cells at the BAC level will bring governance closer to the people, enabling them to voice their concerns and obtain effective solutions to their grievances.
As the public grievance cells are set up in each BAC, it is anticipated that they will play a vital role in addressing the concerns of the local population, facilitating better communication between the government and the citizens, and ensuring the overall welfare and development of Sikkim’s communities.
