RAJSHAHI, June 3: Instead of the conventional approach, services of field level administrative officials should be pro-people and need-oriented for welfare of the public in general.
Besides, emphasis should be given on reaching the public services towards doorsteps of the masses so that they could derive total benefit. Emphasis should also be given on the best uses of the information communication technology (ICT) to this end.
Speakers made these observations while inaugurating a three-day orientation course for the probationary assistant commissioners under the 34th batch of BCS (Administration Cadre) at the conference hall of the circuit house here on Thursday.
Some probationary assistant commissioners are taking part in the orientation course after joining their jobs at the Divisional Commissioner's Office. Afterwards, they will be posted in eight districts under Rajshahi division.
Chairman of Anti-Corruption Commission Iqbal Mahmood addressed the session as chief guest with Commissioner of Rajshahi division Abdul Hannan in the chair.
Additional Commissioner Sultan Abdul Hamid and Deputy Commissioner of Rajshahi Kazi Ashraf Uddin also spoke on the occasion.
Chief Guest Iqbal Mahmood said people-friendly public service is very vital for full-length reflection of the hopes and aspirations of the mass-people.
He also put emphasis on freeing all the field level public services from corruptions and anomalies for the sake of establishing people's confidence on all tiers of the field administration.
Terming the government officials and employees the public servants, he said the officials and employees should be committed towards the people's welfare.
He said the present government is committed to building a transparent, accountable, people-oriented, knowledge-based and dynamic public administration and urged the probationary officers to supplement the  government endeavour.     ?BSS
