PSC deals with abuse

Luke Rawalai
Wednesday, August 13, 2014

THERE are some public servants who are still abusing housing privileges within the Public Service Commission.

Speaking during an interview in Labasa the commission's permanent secretary, Parmesh Chand, said they were dealing with the issue.

Mr Chand said there were only a few people who were still abusing such privileges.

He added that a lot of public servants had attuned themselves to the major reforms taking place within the commission in its efforts to introduce a culture of professionalism.

Mr Chand also said civil servants across the board were being trained to improve their service delivery.

"In the past we have been sending people within the commission for trips overseas to learn of how these countries deal with their own commissions to make it more efficient," he said.

"When they return from these excursions they hardly share their knowledge with their comrades and only a few people have access to the information they have," said Mr Chand.
