For the first time in the administrative history of state secretariat (Mantralaya), office of any minister will be awarded prestigious International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) certification – ISO 9001:2015.
Sudhir Mungantiwar, minister for finance and planning, has won the ISO certification for his office located at fifth floor in Mantralaya. The certificate will be handed over to Mungantiwar by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday. The ISO certificate is being awarded after assessing the ministry on parameters of prompt policy making and execution, monitoring and administrative control activities related to finance, planning and forest departments in the state.
Sources in the finance and forest department said that the Van (forest) Bhavan in Pune and Nagpur and some district offices of the Chief Conservator of Forests (CCF) in places like Mumbai, Thane, Nashik and Nagpur have already acquired the ISO certification. The rest of the forest department offices in other districts have been mandated to get their ISO certification done by December this year.
