Panchayats told to finish works under Swachacha Grama scheme

Staff Correspondent

CHITRADURGA: D. Tangaraju, Principal Secretary, Health and Family Welfare, and Principal Secretary in charge of the district, has instructed gram panchayats to complete all works sanctioned under the Swachacha Grama Yojane within the specified time limit.

Chairing a review meeting of Swachacha Grama Yojane here on Wednesday, he urged the gram panchayats to sort out the problems that may crop up at the time of the implementation.

The Government has chalked out the Swachacha Grama Yojane to maintain hygiene in rural areas to prevent the outbreak of epidemics.

Decentralisation

Narayanaswamy, Chief Executive Officer of the Chitradurga Zilla Panchayat, asked gram panchayats to make the best of decentralization.

Gram panchayats should play an important role in implementing rural development schemes. The Swachacha Grama scheme should be implemented by following the guidelines issued by the Government, he said.

Mr. Narayanaswamy said a programme has been chalked out to train people's representatives at the village level. Kuvempu University has come forward to train gram panchayat members.

Users fee

B.K. Manjunath, Chief Planning Officer of the zilla panchayat, said 59 villages have been selected under the second phase of Swachacha Grama and Rs. 59 lakhs have been collected as users fee from the villagers. The government has released Rs. 76.70 lakhs for the project.

More grants will be released to gram panchayats based on the progress of the work, he added.
