Regarding redressal of complaints in various offices, guidelines have been issued to all the ministries/departments to set up an internal grievance redress machinery and nominate a director of Public Grievances for ensuring proper action on grievances.

Regular review meetings are held in the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances for monitoring pendency of grievances including grievances received in Centralized Public Grievance Redress and Monitoring System (CPGRAMS) through PMO.  During the meetings, some of the disposed of cases are also reviewed on sample basis.

The Grievance Redress Mechanism of the PMO was integrated with the online CPGRAMS in January, 2015.
