Chief Minister, Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu launched the Human Resource Management System (HRMS), an end-to-end online system of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Department here today.
The initiative will exemplify the state government’s commitment to leveraging technology for efficient governance and administration. He said that this step would streamline the process of managing Annual Confidential Reports (ACRs) of all employees of these two departments, directly benefitting about 5,500 staff members. This user-friendly platform would simplify and expedite HR processes, leading to improved transparency and efficiency in the system, he added.
The State Government was planning to enhance the HRMS in the near future with additional modules, including features for managing Transfers, Postings, and Service Books for Zila Parishad employees. This will further augment the capabilities of our human resource processes, he added.
