The Government of Telangana launched “Grama Jyothi”Program as a logical continuation of Mana Ooru-Mana Pranalika. The objective of “Grama Jyothi” is to improve the service delivery to the people in core sectors through the strengthening of the Gram Panchayats by bringing together the efforts of various departments working at the Gram Panchayat level which are hitherto working independent of one another. Grama Jyothi is aimed to synergise the developmental activities of the departments by achieving functional and financial convergence through preparation of Gram Panchayat Developmental Plans. Accordingly, Grama Jyothi intends to strengthen villages in areas like water and sanitation, health and nutrition, education, social security and poverty eradication, natural resources management, agriculture and infrastructure. The Program will ensure inclusive and holistic development of villages through people's participation in planning and collective decision-making.
Centre of Good Governance (CGG) developed a web-based application for Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Department, Government of Telangana, which enables micro level reviewing of works of all Departments taken up at habitation level. In addition, this application helps in effective monitoring of all functional Committee plans at Panchayat, Mandal and District level.
This application is integrated with House Hold survey, to ensure authenticity of data for 8684 Gram Panchayats which helped in generating Gram Panchayat Development Plan for2015-16 and 2016-17.
