Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has directed the District Collectors to end PC culture at the block offices with immediate effect. The CM issued directives at the Collectors’ Workshop.
PC (Percentage Commission) is the collection of Percentage from contractors for undertaking government work orders at block levels.
Only a few days ago, new Panchayatiraj Minister Pradeep Maharathy had also said that he won’t tolerate PC culture at block offices.
While the move is being appreciated by many, critics see it as an admission of guilt that was prevalent for long.
