Construction of village secretariat in every gram panchayat is going on
Lucknow : Uttar Pradesh is a state with unlimited possibilities. Rapid work is being done on these possibilities under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In such a situation, the work of construction of village secretariat in every gram panchayat is going on in the last phase. Soon every gram panchayat will have its own secretariat. A computer operator has already been appointed in these village secretariats, where there will be facility to give certificates of income, residence, caste, birth and death of every person in the village connected with it. Not only this, there will also be a seating arrangement for BC Sakhi. In the inauguration ceremony of the National Conference of BC Sakhi, CM Yogi launched ‘Samarth 2023’ for the promotion of digital transactions at the Gram Panchayat level.
Along with this, Gram Panchayat, programs related to women’s safety being run under Mission Shakti, revenue, will be the focal point of review of all departments. Prime Minister Narendra Modi started BC Sakhi in Prayagraj in the year 2020 to speed up the program of banking transactions in more than 56 thousand gram panchayats. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said these things on Thursday at Indira Gandhi Pratishthan at the launch of ‘Samarth 2023’ for the promotion of digital transactions at the gram panchayat level and the inauguration ceremony of the national conference of BC Sakhi. During this, Union Minister for Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Giriraj Singh, Union Minister of State for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution and Rural Development Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya, Uttar Pradesh Minister of State Vijay Laxmi Gautam etc were present.
BC Sakhi was started during the Corona period
CM Yogi said that if corruption is to be attacked, then we have to go towards digital transactions. For this, Jan Dhan accounts were opened by running a campaign under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Today, the benefits of Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima, Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman, Pradhan Mantri Awas, Mukhyamantri Awas Yojana have been sent directly to the beneficiary’s account through DBT to the tune of Rs 3.30 lakh crore. While this total amount is around three and a half lakh crores, which shows that Uttar Pradesh is leading in the field of digital transactions in the whole country. The CM said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had started BC Sakhi during the Corona period. There are about 56,000 gram panchayats in the state, out of which the process of selection of BC Sakhi has been completed in 55,056 gram panchayats. About 51000 BC Sakhi have been trained. Out of this, 41000 BC Sakhi are doing their work, who have done more than five crore 57 lakh transactions so far. Not only this, BC Sakhis have also played an important role in getting loans to the people with the help of the elders of the village. BC Sakhis in the state are not only a perfect example of women empowerment, but are completing all the transaction programs in the village by becoming their own mini branch of the bank in every village. CM Yogi said that in the last 6 years, we have achieved success in providing one house facility to 54.54 lakh poor people in rural and urban areas.
Balinese milk producer living example of women empowerment
CM Yogi said that the benefits of the schemes of the government are being extended to every section. Earlier, the people of the state were not able to get the benefit of these schemes, because even before these schemes came to the ground, the ports were distributed. But today money is being sent directly to the beneficiary’s account with one click. He said that the aim of good governance is to give the benefit of the schemes of the government to the person sitting at the last rung without any hindrance or barrier. This is the concept of Ram Rajya. Today every citizen in every village of the country is successfully getting the benefit of the public welfare scheme. BC friends have a big role in this.
He said that this national conference would be helpful in bringing the Prime Minister’s vision to the ground level in the state and connecting other sectors with it, because at present BC Sakhi is doing only banking transactions, soon new success will be achieved through her participation in other works. Will move towards heights. Uttar Pradesh is the first state in the country where nutritious food is being distributed to every household and the needy through women self-help groups, while Anganwadi workers are doing this work in other states. Balini Milk Producer working in Jhansi and Bundelkhand is a living example of women empowerment, which started in the year 2019. Its transaction is currently unimaginable. The CM said that people cannot imagine that even women can work in this direction.
