The cabinet also resolved to set up an Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) to examine and provide recommendations for improved organizational structure, recruitment, and staffing policies, with the goal of building a lean, efficient, and agile administrative structure with maximum technology adoption.

As per the CMO’s release, to enhance citizens’ quality of life, the Cabinet resolved to ensure 100 percent physical and digital connectivity to all unconnected villages and Administrative Headquarters, for which a detailed action plan will be prepared.
