What is the People's Plan campaign?
This year, the Minister said that the People’s Plan Campaign should be conducted with better participation from people and each activity should promote a sense of camaraderie and commitment to common goals of all-around development of villages.
He said that it is the responsibility of all of us that every Panchayat in the country should form a well-thought Gram Panchayat Development Plan so that villages can achieve inclusive and sustainable development in the coming year.
The Minister also emphasized on the emergent need of meaningful and accountable use of Gram Sabhas, funds as well as raising own source revenues by Panchayats along with proper use of innovation & technology and convergence of all the resources available through all the Flagship Programmes under the ambit of Panchayati Raj Institutions.
•The People's Plan Campaign will be rolled out in all the States from October 2, 2021. During the campaign, structured Gram Sabha meetings will be held for preparing Panchayat Development Plans for the next financial year 2022–2023.
•The campaign will be undertaken on a large scale, given the number of Gram Panchayats in the country and special efforts have been made to ensure maximum participation of vulnerable sections including women and the SC/ ST population.
•The structured Gram Sabha meetings will be spread over between October 2, 2021-January 31, 2022. All the concerned Ministries/ Departments and States have assured their support and participation in this campaign.
