The Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances has been regularly monitoring and analyzing the disposal of Public Grievances in various Ministries/Departments. It is hereby observed that Ministries/Departments take considerable time to return back the grievances which do not pertain to them to the nodal Departments. Similarly attached/subordinate offices take too long to return back. grievances which o not pertain to them to their Ministries/Departments thus leading to long periods of pendency.

Therefore, it is suggested that the Ministries/Departments should expeditiously examine the grievances received by them and return back the grievances which do not pertain to them within a period of maximum five working days. All the attached and subordinate organrzations under the Ministries/Departments should also be instructed accordingly.
