Rao made the observation while addressing a joint session of state legislature, after the Devendra Fadnavis government won the trust vote on Wednesday. "The Government will implement good decisions taken by the previous government. The state is facing a number of challenges starting from revenue deficit to developmental issues like adequate and continuous supply of power, completion of important ongoing projects, basic infrastructure and providing a transparent and effective administration," he said.

"The objective of my Government is ‘Minimum Government, Maximum Governance’ and hence, the Government is committed to deliver time bound services to the citizens in a transparent manner," he said. The Government will enact a ‘Delivery of Services Guarantee Act’, he said. The proposed Act is an endeavour to assure citizens of their right to timely, efficient, effective and transparent public service.

The Government will also bring about delegation and decentralisation of powers, simplification of laws and procedures, self-certification by citizens and will do away with unnecessary affidavits, and multiple permissions under similar laws, he said.

The new Government is committed to providing a citizen centric administration. An e-portal and a mobile application ‘Apale Sarkar’ will be launched within the next 100 days. Through this portal and mobile application, people can lodge their complaints and make suggestions.

The Government has undertaken a project of constructing a Grand Memorial of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in the Arabian Sea. A National Memorial of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, planned at Indu Mill, has already been approved by the Central Government. These prestigious projects and also
ambitious projects such as Trans Harbour Link and Western Coastal Road will be completed with the assistance of Central Government in a time bound manner, he said.
