Help in making cashless village economy: Tomar to Sarpanches

In the wake of the demonetisation of old highest value currencies of rupees 500 and 1000, Union Minister for Panchayati Raj and Rural Development  Narendra Singh Tomar on Wednesday urged Sarpanches to usher in a cashless village economy by ensuring maximum participation of the common man.

While outlining the commitments of the NDA government, Tomar said that the NDA government is committed to transparency, honesty and good governance and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is willing to work shoulder to shoulder with the elected representatives of Panchayat bodies.

“In the 14th Finance Commission, more than Rs 2 lakh crore were allotted to the Panchayats, wherein in the 13th Finance Commission the amount was Rs 65, 000 crore only for five years,” Tomar said while addressing a meeting of about 1,000 Sarpanches (elected heads of village Panchayats) and Gram Panchayat Secretaries from eight states on Wednesday.
