KATHMANDU: Amid reports that there is huge misappropriation of state funds by the top bureaucrats, the government has decided to install closed-circuit television ( CCTV ) cameras in the chambers of 40 secretaries inside Singha Durbar.
The PMO has called bids from interested parties to install the cameras which can be viewed from the chamber of the chief secretary, which is already under the CCTV surveillance. A majority of the ministries are inside Singhadurbar.
CCTV cameras will be installed in the additional four chambers of the secretaries at the PMO and those of at least 36 secretaries in Singha Durbar. The government has a policy to move all the ministries and major government offices into the administrative secretariat.
“The move will promote transparency in governance as the chief secretary can directly monitor the activities of fellow secretaries,” reports quoted Surya Silwal, secretary at the PMO looking after the project. The project will cost up to Rs 4.5 million and will be completed within a couple of months.
There was a plan to link the prime minister’s chamber with those of the ministers’ with CCTV but it was cancelled due to non-cooperation from some ministers.
