Rural Development Minister Chaudhary Birender Singh today launched SAMANVAY, a compilation of all schemes of both Central and State governments for Gram Panchayats. Briefing media in New Delhi after the launch, Mr Singh said the purpose behind bringing out SAMANVAY is to help MPs in utilising relevant schemes in the planning and implementation of Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana. He said more than 1800 state schemes from across all states have been documented in SAMANVAY.
The Minister also launched ‘Panchayat Darpan’ magazine to monitor the progress of the Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana. It will act as a mirror of all the development activities in the village panchayats.
