Saturday, 31 May 2014 - 6:02pm IST | Place: New Delhi | Agency: ANI

 In a major move aimed at empowering the ministries and departments, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday decided to abolish all the existing nine Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoMs) and twenty-one Groups of Ministers (GoMs).

According to a Press Information Bureau (PIB) release, the government is of the view that the abolishing of GoMs and EGoMs would expedite the process of decision making and usher in greater accountability in the system. The ministries and departments will now process the issues pending before the EGoMs and GoMs and take appropriate decisions at the level of ministries and departments itself.

Wherever the Ministries face any difficulties, the Cabinet Secretariat and the Prime Minister's Office will facilitate the decision making process, the PIB release said.
