Special Campaign 3.0 for Swachhata with focus on minimising pendency of identiﬁed items of work from 2nd-31st October 2023
The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) participated with great vigour in the Special Campaign on Disposal of Pending Matters (SCPDM), from November, 2022 to August, 2023. The special focus of the campaign was disposal of VIP references and Public Grievances. 80 VIP references, 11,284 Public Grievances and more than 2,082 Public Grievance Appeals were disposed off during this period. Moreover, a nation-wide cleanliness drive was also organised across all ﬁeld offices of CBIC. 195 outdoor campaigns have been conducted till now.
During the campaign period, about 1 lakh ﬁles were reviewed, out of which about 86,000 ﬁles were weeded out. Over the course of the year, due to continuing efforts, CBIC has largely transitioned over to e-Office due to which the number of physical files have been reduced to minimal.
Another identiﬁed area of focus was disposal of old/unused office equipment and scrap material and thus freeing up additional space. During the campaign period from November, 2022 to August, 2023, approx. 9,909 sq. ft. of space freed up by disposing of unused material/scrap. The additional space so created was put to productive use.
In order to give further impetus to the exercise, in line with the priorities of the Government, CBIC will undertake the Special Campaign 3.0 from 2nd October to 31st October 2023 for institutionalising Swachhata (cleanliness) and minimising pendency of identiﬁed items of work. CBIC, along with its ﬁeld oﬃces across India shall strive to dispose of the identiﬁed references/ issues during the campaign phase 2nd-31st October, 2023. CBIC remains committed to ensuring cleanliness and enhancing the quality of public spaces maintained by it.
