DIRECTORATE OF FIELD PUBLICITY

     REGIONAL OFFICE -- ITS ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES :

     For supervision, direction and control over the activities and functions of 207 units all over the country, there are 22 Regional Offices each headed by either by a DDG/Directors. While in two regions, the officers of rank of Senior Administrative Grade (SAG) are in position, in 12 regions there are Directors of Selection Grade(NF scale) level. There are 8 regions without regular Regional Heads.

     With a view to covering the entire country with remotest areas and islands, the Regions have either been carved by clubbing more than one State or in bigger States, two Regional Offices have been set up. The smaller states which have been combined to be covered under a Region are - Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura and the Region is called Meghalaya, Mizoram Tripura (MMT) Region. Similarly, Nagaland and Manipur have one region named Nagaland and Manipur Region and North West region with its headquarters at Chandigarh has Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Union Territory of Chandigarh and State of Delhi. Maharashtra region also has Goa in addition to Maharashtra. Various remote areas and Islands are the part of the region which is nearest to them.

     DDG/Directors in their region are assisted by various personnel on programme, administrative, technical and accounts side for carrying on their responsibilities of running their own office as also the units under their control. They have been delegated adequate administrative and financial powers to ensure smooth functioning of their units.

     The role of Regional Heads is very important since by virtue of being the leader of the team of Field Publicity Officers, the responsibility for guiding and supporting them lies on them. The Field Publicity Officers plan their programmes and execute them in accordance with the policy directive issued to them by the Directorate through their respective Regional Heads. In fact, the performance and the output of a unit of a region depends to a great extent on the efforts made by the DDG/Directors who has to ensure conditions in his office as well as Unit's office for efficient and smooth functioning. The administrative control of the Unit is important, indeed, for running the office but for extracting devoted working in the field from Field Publicity Officer and unit, Regional Head has to do a little more. He inspires them, keeps up their morale since the field work is replete with all kinds of hazards, problems and difficulties. With DDG/Director support and guidance they are capable of fulfilling the tasks assigned to them.
