There is special emphasis of J&K administration on the rural development projects and the government is trying to enroll the panchayats for the real success of the schemes on the ground.
The Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir recently reviewed the rural development in Jammu region and asked his officers to be more vigilant on the ground for the implementation of the schemes.
Underscoring the importance of digital inclusion in rural areas, he impressed upon the Rural Development Department to ensure that net enabled Gram Panchayats function properly, so that they could be used as hubs to connect youth clubs, anganwadi centres and other important public sector installations for awareness/IEC campaigns and for promoting government schemes and programmes.
He directed the Planning Development and Monitoring Department to verify the functionality and efficiency of the internet facilities already established in 1081 Gram Panchayats by holding interactions with the officers either through video conferences or google meet.
He advised the department to task DSEOs of the concerned districts to physically verify the functionality of internet facilities provided in 1081 GPs. He directed the Information & Technology Department to organize public scrutiny of Revenue records under ‘Aap ki Zameen Aap ki Nigrani’ initiative across all digitally connected Gram Panchayats.
