Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Tuesday directed all officers of the state government not to function from camp offices at their residences.

The Chief Minister has taken a serious note over the growing tendency among senior officers to operate from the camp office at their residences, an official spokesman said here today.

He said Badal has strictly warned such officers to shun this "un-desirable practice" and asked them to function from their offices from 9 am to 5 pm.

Badal impressed upon them to discharge their duties with utmost dedication, honesty and professional commitment in the public interest.

He also asked the officers to maintain decorum and punctuality in offices to win over the confidence of the general public.

Meanwhile, Badal also asked the officers to be present in their offices from 9 am to 5 pm from Tuesday to Thursday every week to carry out official work besides listening to the grievances of the general public and directed them to keep their field visits and tours on other days.

No complacency would be tolerated at any level in terms of ensuring good governance, clean and accountable administration, Badal was quoted as saying by the spokesman.
