Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has said that the government was moving towards digitising properties and records of all gram panchayats in the state in order to make rural administration transparent.
He was speaking at the presentation of the Grama Puraskara awards on the occasion of 150th birth anniversary celebrations of Gandhiji at Vidhana Soudha here on Wednesday, where 176 gram panchayats were feted for adopting good governance measures.
”The government is committed to fully roll out computer application systems to make Panchayat Raj administration more transparent. On this front, the government is taking steps to digitise assets and records of gram panchayats”, the CM said.
Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (RDPR) Minister K S Eshwarappa announced that open gymnasiums would be started in every Gram Panchayat in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Fit India movement.
”This will help rural women, farmers and youth”, the Minister said.
The government would organise a special training session for Gram Panchayats in Bengaluru on November 2, Mr Eshwarappa said.
”This will serve as a platform for the well-performing gram panchayats to share their best practices with those lagging behind”, he added.
