The Lok Sabha Secretariat will hold a series of "Chintan Shivirs" for its officers and staff members beginning Monday to bring more transparency and objectivity to its functioning.
A brainchild of Speaker Om Birla, the first two-day brainstorming session will be inaugurated by Lok Sabha Secretary General Utpal Kumar Singh on Monday.
Nearly 250 officials from various services of the secretariat are expected to attend the "Chintan Shivir" on Monday.
According to a Lok Sabha Secretariat statement, the broad objectives of the initiative are to encourage creative and innovative thinking, break down hierarchy and promote camaraderie, harness technology, and out-of-box solutions, and bring more transparency and objectivity to the functioning.
The Shivirs are also expected to energize and professionalize the Lok Sabha Secretariat services, share best practices-learning from others, and upgrade the knowledge and develop leadership.
"The deliberations are expected to provide a road map and an implementation plan for the secretariat,” a senior Lok Sabha secretariat official said.
