Centre brings web tools to promote use of Hindi among employees

Centre brings web tools to promote use of Hindi among employees

Central government has introduced web tools like audio-typing aid on computers and is working on making available Hindi classic literature digitally to promote use of the language among its employees, a top official today said.

“We have introduced e-tools to make learning and adaption of Hindi easier among central government employees. For their self-learning, we have also brought in audio-typing aid for their ease,” Secretary, Department of Official Language (Rajbhasha) Girish Shankar said.

The senior bureaucrat said this on the sidelines of a function to mark the 11th ‘World Hindi Day’ in the national capital.

“In our bid to promote usage of Hindi, we are also bringing classic works like those of Premchand and others authors available on the web for our employees, who wish to read those literature,” he said.

The event was hosted by city-based organisation ‘Vishwa Hindi Parishad’ at the Constitution Club of India, which was attended among others, by BJP Sitamarhi MP Ram Kumar Sharma and noted novelist Narendra Kohli.

Union Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, who was scheduled to open the event, had to give it a miss due to some urgencies.

“I express my heartfelt wishes to one and all on the occasion of ‘Vishwa Hindi Diwas’. It would have been an honour to attend the programme but due to some urgent work, I couldn’t move out of Mumbai,” he said in a Hindi message sent to the organisers.

First ‘World Hindi Day’ was celebrated in 2006 during the then UPA dispensation.

Mention Aadhaar for filing governance-related grievances: Government

Mention Aadhaar for filing governance-related grievances: Government

To reduce the number of vexatious and malicious complaints the government has decided to encourage the complainants to mention their Aadhaar card numbers while filing grievances on governance-related matters through an online platform.

The Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG), which is the nodal agency for formulating policy guidelines for citizen-centric governance, manages a Centralised Public Grievance Redress and Monitoring System.

People can visit public grievance website — http://pgportal.gov.in/ — to file their complaints. The grievance can be filed against any government organisation in the country through this portal.

“There have been some vexatious complaints and those with no concrete information. People should be encouraged to mention their Aadhaar number so that false complaints can be separated from the genuine ones and there is no harassment of government officials in the process,” a senior DARPG official said.
He said the filing of Aadhaar has not been made mandatory and is an optional field in an application form available online for lodging grievances.

Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identification number which acts as a proof of identity and address anywhere in the country.

Grievances are now also being monitored by Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself through the online Proactive Governance and Timely Implementation (PRAGATI) wherein grievances identified for systemic changes are discussed through video conferencing with the concerned Secretaries.
A mobile application was also launched in October last year which can be downloaded on a smart phone for lodging grievances.

Lakhs of public grievances are filed online every year. About three lakhs grievances were filed in 2014, 2.35 lakh in 2013 and 2.01 lakh in 2012, according to government data.
