Why in news?
- Jammu and Kashmir government has launched ‘Back to the Village’ programme to facilitate interaction between bureaucrats and panchayats.
About the programme
- The Jammu and Kashmir government has launched its ambitious outreach programme, ‘Back to the Village’, as part of which bureaucrats will spend the next 36 hours in different panchayats, gathering feedback from people on development of their areas.
- Under the ‘Back to the Village’ programme, government officers will be spending two days and one night in different panchayats.
- The eight-day programme, from June 20-27, is being organised across all Panchayats of the state.
- During their stay, they will –
- hold meetings with elected ‘panches’ and ‘sarpanches’,
- hold ‘gram’ (village) and ‘mahila sabhas’ (women assemblies) in addition to other grassroots level interactions.
- The outreach initiative is primarily aimed at energising the 4,483 panchayats and directing development efforts in rural areas through community participation and to create in the rural masses an earnest desire for a decent standard of living.
- The basic objective of this programme is to move governance from its seat of operation to the doorsteps of the people in villages.
- It will focus on four main goals
- energising panchayats,
- collecting feedback on delivery of government schemes and programmes,
- capturing specific economic potential and
- undertaking assessment of needs of villages,
- besides affording an opportunity to gazetted officers to visit the villages.
- The programme will involve the people of the state and government officials in a joint effort to deliver the mission of equitable development across all our rural areas.
- The feedback obtained during the exercise will help the government in assessing and subsequently tailoring the various central and state government schemes to improve delivery of village-specific services.
