Back to Village in Shopian granting public ownership of govt schemes to people

At the Back to Village programme in Shopian, Makhan Lal, a local resident of Shopian says, people had not thought in their dreams that so much work would happen with the programme. Previously, no common person had the authority to visit tehsildaars or executive engineers. Today, the tehsildaars, executive engineers and Block Development Officers (BDO) officers stand in front of the people and are responsible for their actions. Bilal Ahmad, another local resident says, with the Back to Village programme the administration realises the power of the common man. Big officers do door to door campaigns to reach the most common man in Shopian and understand their problems. The locals were grateful to the administration for taking the good step to benefit the common masses. Secretary, Tribal Affairs, Shahid Iqbal Chowdhary said, the most important aspect of the Back to Village programme is to grant public ownership of all the government schemes and programmes. It also establishes transparency and a mechanism of feedback and redressal in each department. They analyse whether the workers who are assisting the government are getting success in providing benefits to the people at the ground level. Can improvements be made in the system? Jan Bhagidaari concept is based on the fact that public ownership is established in all the projects. Therefore, it is important to approach people and tell them about the work we are doing. What are the schemes known to them and where does the administration need to fill the gap. The senior officers at the Back to Village camps take feedback from the people and give it to the government. Not just work but the intention of the officers is to improve efficiency in the system and the public delivery of the government schemes to people.
