Govt to weed out old files as PM directs clearance of all pending grievances, assurances by Oct 31.

The stereotype of a government office—full of archaic cabinets with dusty old files—may soon be a thing of the past.

The Government of India, on directions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will in October dispose of all pending public grievances and complaints, along with all pending assurances given to Parliament, MPs and state governments as well as conclude all inter-ministerial consultations. As part of this exercise, the government will be weeding out old, unwanted files along with all obsolete material. Starting September 13, all ministries, departments and subordinate offices, as per instructions from Cabinet Secretariat, have been preparing the material and identifying the scope of the work to be done.
