The state minister for cooperatives, higher education, dairy development and protocol, Dhan Singh Rawat has directed the officials to ensure that the left over eligible families under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana- Gramin (PMAY-G) should be extended the benefit of the scheme and for it they should be again included in the ambit of the PMAY-G.
He was undertaking a meeting of officials of departments concerned under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MNREGS) at his office at Vidhan Sabha on Wednesday. He said that 94 beneficiaries have been left out of the PMRHS and they should be included in the scheme. Rawat directed the officials that they should seek guidance on as to how this gap would be bridged.
The minister was informed that so far 90 percent of the eligible families have been covered under the scheme. The selection of the beneficiaries is being done on the basis of the census of 2011. The minister said that the newly elected members of the three tier Panchayati Raj system such as Pradhans, member block Panchayats and member district Panchayats would be trained under the MNREGS. In the training the elaborate information about the MNREGS would be given and the members would be informed about the works admissible under the scheme. He said that due to lack of knowledge the scheme is not being used with all its benefits properly. In view of the problem of availability of budget to the self help groups from the revolving fund of rural development, the minister directed that Chief Development Officer (CDO) of districts would convene a joint meeting of officials of cooperative departments and the rural development departments. The cooperative committees and the cooperative banks would provide interest free loans for the self help groups. It was also decided in the meeting that the tasks of upkeep, carpeting and strengthening of the roads of Pauri district under Prime Minister Rural Roads scheme would be transferred to the Public Works Department (PWD). The decision would remove the problem of the maintenance of these roads after five years. The minister also suggested that a guideline for differentiating between skilled and unskilled workers should be made as it would help in bringing transparency.
The meeting was attended by secretary rural development Manisha Panwar, under secretary of rural development Ashutosh Shukla, Deputy director SDRDA Vivek Kumar Upadhyaya and others.
