Andhra Pradesh CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy announced the opening of a call centre in the CMO to receive complaints from the people about corruption.
Come August 15, people in Andhra Pradesh may directly complain to the Chief Minister's Office about corruption, discrimination or on not receiving benefits of government schemes.
He added by August 15, four lakh jobs will be provided with the appointment of village volunteers. Every volunteer will be responsible for door delivery of government services for 50 houses.
Addressing the people after his swearing-in at Indira Gandhi Municipal Stadium here, he announced a series of measures to implement his poll promises, to root out corruption and bring "revolutionary changes" in the administration.
The new Chief Minister also announced setting up village secretariats, each manned by 10 persons, to coordinate with village volunteers for door delivery of government services. This move, to come into effect from October 2, will provide jobs to another 1.6 lakh people.
If a citizen wants benefits under 'Navaratnalu' or nine major welfare schemes, he/she can apply to the village secretariat and he or she will be provided with the benefits within 72 hours.
As a first step to implement this promise, he signed a file to enhance the old age pension from existing Rs 2,000 to Rs 2,250. He announced that the pension will be enhanced by Rs 250 every year to fulfil the promise of making the pension Rs 3,000.
