1,200 officers to visit 1K villages to get real report on PMs 7 plans
New Delhi: The government is pulling out all the stops to make "Gram Swaraj Abhiyan" a grand success across the country. The programme, which is aimed at analysing the impact of seven key schemes at the village level, would be launched on the Ambedkar Jayanti on April 14 and it would conclude on May 5.
According to a senior official, the government has decided to send 1,200 officials to 1,000 villages to get the 'factual details' about the implementation of several flagship schemes of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which includes Ujjwala Yojana, Jan Dhan Yojana, UJALA scheme, Awas Yojana, MGNREGA, etc.
Explaining about the rollout plan of the "Gram Swaraj Abhiyan, the official said, "There are 600 senior officials and a similar number of mid-level officials, who have been assigned by the different ministries to get real-time feedback on the implementation of key schemes."
"It's a good move as we would get the real picture while visiting and interacting with beneficiaries. We have been told to upload the report card on 'immediate' basis through different means of communications," the official said, adding that it would help concerned ministries in addressing the loopholes in the scheme implementation.
All 'selected' officials have been assigned to visit 1,000 villages of aspirational districts from April 14 to May 5. During the course of the visit to a particular district, the officers would remain in the district only till the completion of 'factual analysis"
According to Union Rural Development Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, "The Abhiyan is being undertaken for reaching out to poor households, spreading awareness about government welfare schemes and other people-centric initiatives."
