Re-engineering within Government at all levels

With the COVID-19 pandemic, industry and businesses have been trying to cut costs and survive. However, the Governments at Central, State Local levels have done little to cut costs while many of the states are in bad financial state, some even bankrupt. WFH was poorly implemented and continue to be in most places where its still operational.

With this post, we would like to seek your inputs on where and how Government should reduce/optimize its workforce and cut costs. You are requested to share as much detail as possible such that detailed recommendations can be developed.

We look forward to your inputs! more

All municipalities, state governments and central governments should reduce their staff. I have personally seen departments in the PMC where people are just sitting there with no work and getting paid. Old corpora tors are getting medical benefits when they are no longer in service. No more freebies. I believe in Jharkhand a family of two/three get 70 Kg. of rice, wheat, sugar and oil every month free of charge. Why should these people work then? All these measures need to be stopped. Z security should be only given to certain people in the highest ranks and not to all the hoi poloi. If you are elected, then get your own security. You are getting paid liberally. Any thing given free should be stopped. more  
With many state institutions closed and running on line , austerity should be the mantra and demand from state to Center must reduce .
Schemes like aanganwadi , mid day meals ( free eggs milk packets , protein powder is dumped in AP and mis used)free school books bags , scholarships , hostel fees , LTC,
TA, DA, ban on airlinevtravel , free education tours of Ministers,MLAs must be stopped until Normalcy is restored .
Free rice wheat and house and plots cash benifit transfers must stop until audit is done
.Free loans for studies abroad must be stopped from Govt.
Ban sake of govt land ,SEZs
No Sops .
Save budgets to cater for emergencies. more  
DENYING Education Professions MSME is unconstitutional. Opting Freebies Subsidies Grants, etc ARE ONLY VOTE BANK PROVISIONS.
This poisonous System keep Voters Depend on Politicians FOREVER .

It is a good that more of us are waking up to the fact that the political fraternity is becoming more and more autocratic and gives preference to industrialists, Building mafia and also Mining mafia. Because it is these sources who provide them and their parties, sustenance. The notion that industrialisation is the only way a nation can become progressive and affluent has been sown in our administrative psyche by our rulers and doggedly followed by our bureaucrats who are the mainstay of any government at centre and state level. By Gods gift our nation's terrain and climate is endowed with a very rich soil ( even by flooding) , adequate water and a naturally talented farming population. The population does not only provide us with food but also man-power for our defence forces , para-military and labour force for our industries and construction works. Mahatama Gandhi's and our current PM's slogan that we must adopt Swadeshi and become self-sufficient should dictate us the sense that we may have just sufficient manufacturing and building capability only to sustain our agriculture and our daily needs. Completely STOP EXPORTING thereby also fully stopping selling our mineral wealth to earn revenue for the nation . We must fully indigenise with R&D effort and exploiting our local resources to feed the nation as well as export agricultural products to earn that revenue. All other efforts of Industry, construction and mining should be done only and strictly to support our agriculture produce and its processed products. My effort to explain this is mainly to say that our agriculture if fully modernised can get us enough revenue to make us one of the most affluent nations of the world. Our needs other than food can be imported. more  
Subsidies Grants Reliefs are Mislead. Tax Evasion Continued. SC to direct for Linking Aadhar to All Sorts of Bank Accounts Phones IDs Voter Lists ; Bank Transactions for Rs.2,000/- and above . GOI TO Demonetise 2000 and 500 Currency Increasing 200 Notes . more  
Government should reduce unnecessary expenditure and MP lad funds, which are mostly used to derive benefit. The workforce should be optimised for the benefit of the public. more  
This is adding up to many Beneficiaries of Others Govt Befits more  
What to say about reducing the expenditure, in Rajasthan govt. has increased house rent for MLAs to 50,000 per month, how funny.Every minister is having P S in addition to the PAs attached by the govt.So many free facilities are given to the politicians must be charged or stopped. more
