CS inaugurates capacity building workshop
Stresses For Involving Panchayats, Village Level Volunteers In Rural Schemes
Jammu, Dec 24: Chief Secretary Madhav Lal today inaugurated a one day orientation workshop organized by J&K Institute of Management Public Administration (IMPA).
The workshop was aimed to educate the government functionaries and other stakeholders about the concept of “Total Unity for Livelihood Innovation and Production” (TULIP) under the Union Ministry of Rural Development sponsored Lab–to-Land Initiative. The workshop aimed primarily to make Deputy Commissioners and Rural development officers aware about the Lab- to-Land project and its various dimensions.
Joint Secretary, Union Ministry of Rural Development, Niten Chandra, Director General IMPA, R K Jerath were also present on the occasion.
In his inaugural address Chief Secretary said that there was considerable scope to enhance effectiveness of the programmes by building leadership, disseminating knowledge and encouraging innovations by going beyond the routine. “The emphasis must be on increasing the ability and capacity of government functionaries, to relate directly with stake holders and to work with them to bring about a meaningful participation of people in government programmes,” he asserted adding that involving Panchayats and Bharat Nirman Volunteers in the schemes will not only bring transparency and accountability but will also maximise benefits for the rural people.
Madhav Lal said that understanding the philosophy behind the schemes is crucial and Deputy Commissioners who face a challenge in prioritizing their work have to provide leadership to the entire field machinery by organizing them to act together as one cohesive unit and mobilize all resources by finding grounds of convergence with similar programmes being implemented by other departments.
“Deputy commissioners are required to devote time and attention to see whether important schemes like Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan(SSA), National Rural Health mission(NRHM), MGNREGA, Self employment schemes etc are effectively implemented and receive and report feedback from the public about its impact and outcome on the ground” he said
Joint Secretary, MoRD, Niten Chandra, presented aims and objectives of the Lab –To- Land Project and how it is to be implemented in the state. He observed that unless the programmes for rural development are not fully owned by the people it cannot produce the desired results as envisaged. He said the success of the programme lies in the way people are approached and mobilised to participate actively.
The workshop was attended by Divisional commissioner Jammu, Dr Pawan Kotwal, Deputy commissioners of Jammu, Poonch, Udhampur, Kargil, Reasi, Rajouri, Ramban, Kishtawar, Kathua, Samba, Director Rural development Kashmir and Director Rural Development Jammu, SDM R.S. PORA, SDM Akhnoor, BDO’S and senior officers ,various Panchayat members and Bharat Nirman Volunteers.
