As a special endeavour during the Gram Swaraj Abhiyan, saturation of eligible households/persons would be made under seven flagship pro-poor programmes in 21,058 identified villages covering 530 districts. The identified schemes are Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, Saubhagya, Ujala scheme, Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana and Mission Indradhanush.
Visakhapatnam district is an aspiration districts where 618 villages were selected for extended GSA Scheme. Collector Praveen Kumar has convened a meeting at conference hall with DRDA PD Satya Sai Srinivas, assistant lead bank manager JLN Murthy, NABARD manager S Srinivas Rao, SC, BC, Minority Corporation’s executive directors B V Ramana, Geetha Devi, Disabled Welfare assistant director Venkateswar Rao and bankers, to review the scheme.
‘MPDOs should verify the applications of the beneficiaries and up load them in the server to achieve the targets immediately’ said Praveen Kumar. Officials should give priority to the new units and approve them to ground those units. Respective field officers should visit the units and full report should be submitted. DRDA staff should join all eligible persons in Chandranna Bheema scheme. It came to my notice that some units are being up loaded in the server as grounded ones even though it did not happen in reality. Concerned bank officials will be punished after confirming their role in the fraud procedure, he added.
‘We have achieved 86% in PM JDY scheme, 42% in PM JBY and 59% in PM SBY scheme under extended Gram Swaraj Yojana’ said lead bank manager Sheshu Kumar while replying to the collector.
