Prime Minister Modi launches Rashtriya Gramin Swaraj Abhiyan
Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Rashtriya Gramin Swaraj Abhiyan from Madhya Pradesh's Mandla region on the occasion of National Panchayati Raj Day.
The scheme has been created for training, building infrastructure, and setting up initiatives for e-governance under the e-Panchayat Mission Mode Project.
The scheme will aim to provide more more financial stability and independence to the panchayats so that they can operate in a self-sustainable manner.
Panchayats are the basic units of local administration in Indian villages. The scheme will provide resources to the panchayats so that the development of the villages can be done efficiently.
Prime Minister Modi also promised that more development projects will be started in the region. This includes setting up an LPG plant at a cost of Rs 120 crore.
