People were confused because of this decision of the PM. Finally, PM Modi has revealed the reason behind this strict rule. During an interaction with the media recently he revealed that mobile phones were banned from his meetings because he often found officers checking social media sites in the midst of official discussions.

I see these days that district-level officers are so busy that most of their time goes into it (social media). I have stopped the entry (of mobile phones) in my meetings as they (officers) would take them out and start (checking out social media sites).

At a meeting here to mark Civil Services Day, the PM  told bureaucrats,

The social media should be used for the welfare of the people and not for self-praise. The world was moving from e-governance to mobile-governance and the best equipment needed to be used for the welfare of people. Social media sites were helpful when they were used for spreading information about the good work being done.



 

He stressed upon the idea of using social media for entertainment during important hours.

If I am informing the people about dates of polio vaccination through social media, saying that they should come out on a particular date for the vaccination, then it (social media) is helpful. But if during vaccination-related work, I am praising my own photograph on Facebook, then it puts a question mark (on the work done by civil servants).

PM Modi’s reason behind banning the mobile phone sounds valid. He even expressed that he was not a part of the bureaucracy because he did not get the chance to attend coaching. But he finds himself lucky that he is in public service for the past 16 years.
