Vide reference 3rd cited, the Government have constituted a Committee chaired by the Chief Secretary for detailed delegation of powers to Joint Collectors and for suggesting modification of Rules Acts as per requirement. 


The Committee, after several deliberations, has communicated the suggestions prescribed for each Secretariat Department Head of Department for distributing functions at District level between Collector Joint Collector District Head of Department vide reference 4th cited. A copy of the same is enclosed for ready reference. 

As per the procedure thus prescribed, all the departments have prepared and submitted the required information in Annexure - 1, 2 & 3. After further deliberations, the Committee has made the following key observations:

It has been observed that there are no clear delegation of powers to the Joint Collectors even though the departments were assigned to them.

Clear description of powers and functions delegated to the Joint Collectors shall bring in clarity in this respect and improve the effectiveness of the day to-day functioning of the Joint Collectors.

As many departments have District Officers in each district, the suggested delegation of powers and functions should not make the role of the District Officer redundant, on the various governance channels at the district level, resulting in better service delivery.

It is opined by the Committee that the proposed delegation of powers and functions to the Joint Collectors shall in no way undermine the powers and functions of the District Collector, as the powers of oversight and review shall be vested in the District Collector only.

The Departments can explore further and come up with a comprehensive list of powers and functions that can be further delegated to the Joint Collectors and should also clearly demarcate the functions of their District Heads.

In view of the above, I request you to prepare a comprehensive draft Government Order (Draft G.O.) pertaining to your Secretariat Department (including all the State HODs and District HoDs) for delegation of functions and authority to Joint Collectors and circulate a file for approval of the same by the Chief Secretary through Principal Secretary to Government (Services & HRM). The file, as mentioned above, should be circulated within 7 days i.e. by 25.05.2021.

A copy of the Annexures 1,2 & 3 submitted by you (your Department) is enclosed for ready reference.
