Police to sponsor a tele-treat for tribals

By Our Staff Reporter

ADILABAD, SEPT. 14. The Adilabad police endeavours to bring the world into rural homes by sponsoring the first batch of 11 Direct to Home (DTH) telecast systems in remote tribal villages of the district.

Jobs for tribals

"It will also provide employment to poor tribals in these far flung areas," said the Adilabad Superintendent of Police, Kripa Nanda Tripathi Ujela.

The lull in the ongoing peace process has enabled the district police to indulge in constructive activities. And it has latched on to modern technology to usher in development in the most backward areas of this district.

The villages where the DTH systems are proposed to be set up are Rimma in Indervelli mandal, Yapalguda in Neredigonda, Narayanpur in Ichoda, Mahaduguda in Boath, Gandigopalpur in Kadam, Sumputam in Vemanpalli, Pangdi Somaram in Kotapalli, Parvatigudem in Asifabad, Mangi and Pangdi Madora in Tiryani and Jamuldhari in Sirpur-U.

To pay rent too

The DTH systems including the latest flatron TV sets and power stabilisers will cost the police about Rs. 20,000 each. The department will also shell out the monthly subscription of Rs. 107 per system for one year before the custodian takes over fully.

"The venture is a pilot project for improving the living conditions of villagers by means of modern communication. The DTH will provide the local villagers a different kind of platform. As the local community is bound to collectively watch television, it will result in increased community participation," explained Mr. Ujela.

The custodian has been named in each of villages on whose name billing will be done. It is his job to ensure that the facility is open round the clock.
