Education, health depts to be managed locally: CM

PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has decided to manage the education and health departments at the local level.

Chief Minister Ali Amin Khan Gandapur at a meeting directed to streamline the existing system of education and health in the province, a press released issued by the CM Secretariat stated.

The chief minister stressed the need for devolution of management of the two sectors to lower level. He said additional directors general should be appointed at the regional level for better and efficient management of the departments.

He said departments with huge human resources could not efficiently managed from provincial level, adding that service delivery can be improved only when managed and looked after at local level; and, therefore, it is necessary to shift the workload to regional level.

He directed that teachers and paramedical staff recruited on domicile basis should be re-posted in the areas of their respective domicile where they are supposed to serve. 

He underscored the need for digitizing the health and education departments for better utilization of resources and effective monitoring of service delivery.

The chief minister directed the concerned authorities that there should be no transfer of teachers without vacant posts in the education department.

Apart from this, appointment of teaching cadre employees against administrative positions should be stopped and the teaching cadre and management cadre should be kept separately in the health and education department.

Matters related to the launching of education card on the analogy of health card were also discussed in the meeting to facilitate the children to get admissions in private sector schools in areas where public sector schools do not exist or are inaccessible for any reason.
