While public expectations from the government have increased tremendously over the years, their level of satisfaction with the service delivery has gone down drastically. This entails the government to work in a systematic manner to bring back people's confidence into the system. It is only through quality and dedicated service, sustainable development can be achieved and people's confidence can be regained, said Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, while releasing the Assam Human Development Report 2014: Managing Diversities, Achieving Human Development, here today. Releasing the publication, the Chief Minister said the Government has a great responsibility in ensuring that every rupee earmarked for public welfare reaches the poorest of beneficiaries. The Chief Minister also hoped that Assam Human Development Report will help the government to chart out policies, which will impact the lives of people. Keeping this in mind, the government has already launched the Chief Minister's Samagra Gramya Unnayan Yojana (CMSGUY) to improve farm economy of the state, in sync with Garib Kalyan Yojana launched by the Union Government, the Chief Minister said.Speaking on the occasion, Finance Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma urged all government officials to commit themselves to the cause of people. Terming the Report as a reflection of problems and possibilities of the state, Dr Sarma emphasised on people's participation in the government. Industry Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary, PWD Minister Parimal Suklabaidya, Water Resource Minister Keshav Mahanta, UNDP Country Head Jaco Cilliers, Chief Secretary VK Pipersenia, State Planning Board Vice Chairman Dipak Borthakur and NITI Aayog Advisor Jitendra Kumar attended the ceremony, among others.Assam Human Development Report 2014 is prepared by Omiya Kumar Das Institute of Social Change and Development, Guwahati in collaboration with the Institute of Human Development, New Delhi, on behalf of the Planning and Development Department of Government of Assam. The Report specifically highlights geographical, social, economic and institutional diversities of the state and their implications on aggregate human development outcomes. This is the second Human Development Report for the state, the first was published a decade back in 2003.The present Report is based on a survey of 39,998 households and 1,87,511 individuals from 27 districts of the state. The Report puts Human Development Index (HDI) in Assam at 0.557, indicating that level of human development in the state is just about halfway of the desired level. The Chief Minister also inaugurated a two-day Innovation Lab Workshop, organised by the state Finance Department, in partnership with UNDP in the same programme. UNI SG AD RJ 1851
