In order to make the panchayati raj system strong on the ground level, the J & K administration is working in this direction.

Recently the Chief Secretary of J&K launched ‘Aspirational Panchayat’ dashboard for monitoring rankings of 4291 Panchayats. He asked for development of panchayat websites to reflect their progress.

He launched the Planning, Development and Monitoring Department dashboard for monitoring the progress of panchayats of J&K under ‘Aspirational Panchayat Development Programme (APDP)’.

Those who were present included Commissioner Secretary, RDD; Commissioner Secretary, IT; Secretary, PD&MD; DG, Planning; CEO, JaKeGA besides other concerned officers.

During the launch ceremony, the Chief Secretary felicitated the Planning Department  for coming up with the monitoring mechanism for keeping track of the development of Panchayats. He observed that tools like these are the sure way of bringing efficiency in the governance and advised the developers to programme other such tools in future.

He called this dashboard a mirror to find out the areas of concern for each panchayat. He remarked that it would make the interventions more directional with requisite outcomes to be  monitored in real time. He exhorted upon all to carry forward this exercise of updating this portal periodically and not to turn such efforts into ritualistic affairs only.
