These deliverables broadly define the priority areas towards ensuring greater efficiency in the overall governance of Jammu and Kashmir, and lay down monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and yearly targets for all departments.

 These developmental contours not only define the quality and quantity of departmental services to be ensured in a time-bound manner, but also envision enhanced efficiency and productivity through greater inter-departmental convergence and coordination. Their implementation will be reviewed at the highest-level.

The exercise of framing the detailed departmental deliverables and fixing tangible and time-bound targets; has been undertaken in consultation with concerned departments. The list of deliverables broadly includes approximately 1250 tangible targets relevant for improving public service delivery.

It is a transformative step to achieve the Government’s objective of good governance through holistic and transparent development of Jammu and Kashmir.
