Jarnail Singh, Class of 1970

Jarnail Singh, an IAS officer of Manipur-Tripura 1974 batch was awarded “Prime Minister’s Award for Excellence in Public Administration” for the year 2007-08 on the National Civil Services Day on 21st April 2008. Jarnail Singh graduated in 1970 from PEC. He was awarded the B.Sc. Engg (Electrical) degree with Honours. He completed his M.Sc. Engg (Electrical) with Honours in 1972 from PEC.

Once again the PEC Alumnus has made the institute proud for his outstanding contributions towards the public administration of the nation and to the society as a whole.

The award has been conferred for introducing innovations in State administration when Sh. Jarnail Singh was Chief Secretary of the Manipur state government from August 2004 to July 2008. He developed a system named “Computerization of Personnel Information System” and developed a legal frame work by enactment of an Act called “Manipur Public Servants’ Personnel Liability Act 2006”. These initiatives, improved the delivery of public services in rural and remote areas of the state , weeded out 6311 ghost and fake employees and has made the public servants personally liable to compensate the state government financially, in case the illegal actions of the public servants [Ministers and government servants] leads to financial loss to the state. The Government of India and the Central Vigilance Commission has asked all state in India to create a legal frame work similar to “Manipur Public Servants Personal Liability Act 2006”.

Jarnail Singh says now that the system is in place, the advantages will keep growing, but it still has a long way to go as far as upgradation is concerned. The road ahead is challenging as the system has to be maintained in tune with the changing technology environment. But then, success is achieved only after treading the toughest roads!
