Ranchi: After a hiatus of few years, Jharkhand government is all set to introduce the Citizen’s Charter and the Right to Service Act in the state from November 15, the state’s foundation day. A formal declaration in this context was made by Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Thursday.

It is to be noted that the work in regards to Citizen Charter Campaign launched in 2005-06 was to be completed by 2007-08. But due to some reasons, the project was left in isolation for past few years.

With this, anyone sitting in the remote village can complaint or seek information online on which block headquarters, district headquarters or state headquarters will work.

"The Citizen's Charter and the Right to Service Act will be implemented from November 15. We are planning to bring an anti-corruption bill in the winter session of the assembly. The provisions will include to seizing properties of tainted officials," Munda said while addressing a public meeting in support of Advani's country-wide campaign.

"After the Right to Service Act is implemented every task would have to be completed within the stipulated time span. If any official is found delaying a task, his salary will be deducted," Munda added.
