Itanagar : Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Thursday said that the State Government would soon launch the ‘Seva Aapke Dwar 2.0’ – second ‘avatar’ of its “hugely successful” outreach programme ‘Sarkar Aapke Dwar’ (Government at your doorstep) being held across the state since last few years.
“Seva Aapke Dwar will be different from Sarkar Aapke Dwar and will be based on actual need of villagers,” said Khandu while speaking to deputy commissioners of all the districts during the 19th e-Pragati meeting.
“In Sarkar Aapke Dwar you have been taking your services to the people but in Seva Aapke Dwar you will be taking the exact service to the people actually required by them,” he told the DCs.
Khandu elaborated that a prior exercise has to be done by the concerned administrative officer and collect data like number of villages, number of villagers, which scheme they haven’t availed, which scheme they actually want to avail, for which scheme they are actually eligible and which scheme would be feasible for the particular village, which services are yet to be availed by the villagers, etc.
“Based on these inputs, the administration will prepare in advance and take only the required schemes and services to the people. This will ensure that people get what they want and not choose from what is on offer. In short, earlier you gave what you had. Now you give what people want,” Khandu added.
He appreciated the district administrations for taking Sarkar Aapke Dwar camps to the remotest of places and efficiently bridging the gap between the government and citizens. He expressed optimism that they will work with the same sincerity and energy in implementing the second avatar of the hugely successful program.
Khandu hinted that the Seva Aapke Dwar programme would be launched sometime in October next from Siang district, a communiqué from the CMO said.
