Public services need to be pro-people and time-fitting: speakers
14 December 2015, Nirapad News: 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 to reaching the public services at doorsteps of the masses so that they could derive total benefit of the public services. Emphasis should be given to the best uses of the ICT to this end.
Speakers made these observations while addressing the inaugural ceremony of a six-month ‘PO-61st Foundation Training Course’ held in the conference hall of Postal Academy in Rajshahi City today. “We shall render service honestly and promptly” is the slogan of the course.
