Lucknow: Additional Chief Secretary, Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Dr. Navneet Sehgal said that departmental activities should be carried forward under a transparent system. The products to be purchased from handicraftsmen and entrepreneurs should be identified for sale on GeM.
Based on the tender process, an interim rate list of the supplier should be prepared. This will ensure complete transparency in transactions. Dr. Sehgal was reviewing UP handloom and UPICA in his office room located at Lok Bhavan.
He said that there should be only two bank accounts in UP handloom and UPICA. The first will be the collection account and the second will be the handloom account. They should also be audited from time to time. He said that last year 51 crore sales were made through UP handloom, which should be increased.
The Additional Chief Secretary also directed that the showrooms given on rent on PPP basis should be reviewed. If any showroom is less than circle rate, then it should be re-tendered. Under no circumstances should the allotment of shops be less than the circle rate. He also directed that a list of all the cases pending in both the departments should be prepared. Where there is a possibility of compromise, its disposal should be ensured on priority.
