There is a need to ensure that in all government offices the staff is very punctual in reporting for work. Even at the Secretariat in Porvorim you see staff merrily walking in past 10.30. This is impermissible. Infact the Heads of all departments across Goa should themselves lead by example. Besides every government employee has a duty to ensure that in serving the public, the staff discharge their duties very courteously, professionally with love, passion, integrity and more importantly with a smile. They must realise that the very people they serve pay for this service and are therefore their employers who have a right to expect an excellent service at all times. Those who consider serving the people a burden have no right to continue in service.
Government employees reaching the office late, merrily absconding during office hours and leaving office early is unacceptable as it is an inconvenience to the people visiting the government offices to redress their grievances.
Every step possible must be taken to also ensure total transparency, efficiency and honesty in the working of all departments. Only then will there be a hope for Good Governance. Government and government offices in any smooth functioning democracy must always be of the people, by the people and for the people. Let us hope that every government servant will truly vow towards this goal.
