Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala could register
tremendous progress through the newly introduced performance
monitoring and evaluation system, a senior official said
Kerala was the third state to adapt the system launched
by the Centre in September 2005. Punjab and Maharashtra had
earlier implemented the system, Central secretariat Secretary
Performance Management, Prajapathi Trivedi, said.
The system was meant to evaluate the actual achievements
of a government department against annual targets. Performance
would not be gauged from a financial angle, he said.
"Fund spending is not the matter, but the physical,
qualitative, static and dynamic efficiency have to be
counted," he told reporters here.
A Result Framework Document (RFD) would be prepared every
financial year. It had been decided to take objective action
to determine the progress of RFD in the first 100 days of the
UDF government in the state, he said.
Chief Minister Oommen Chandy had invited Trivedi to the
state to introduce the Performance Management System.
