At present nearly 1,200 Resident Welfare Associations and Market Welfare Associations are part of the Bhagidari initiative which had led to greater transparent, openenss and efficiency in running of the adminsitration and implementation of various projects. In fact, the Bhagidari scheme had found echo during the AICC meeting held at Shimla recently when the issue of good governance came up for discussion.
