Jagatsinghpur, July 30 (LocalWire): The district administration has received the prestigious Skoch award in silver category for successful management of COVID-19 today.
Jagatsinghpur is the only district, not only in the state, but also one of the few in the country to implement e-office.
Talking to this publication, collector Mohapatra informed, “None of our official work has been hampered, despite implementation of the lockdown and shut down, which is the biggest achievement of our district.
For the last 120 days, even when a positive case was detected, none of the industries were closed, which is our biggest achievement.
“We made it a point that all the migrant labourers are working, no one should have to move, hardly around 500-600 moved because of family pressure and all others stayed and we provided them all the facilities in the industrial area.
Besides this, administration made 405 quarantined centers in 198 Gram Panchayats. In each panchayat, there are quarantine centers where any of the migrant labourer can come and stay for 14 days,” he added.
It may be recalled that this district, which is the only district of the state where all offices run by e-office under 5T, bagged the national level SKOCH crucible award for e-governance in June.
