Principal Secretaries/ Secretaries (All States/UTs)

Madam /Sir,

Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) Phase-I which started in the month of October, 2014 is concluding shortly. To enable the States for entering the updates, Ministry has instituted an online portal with progress indicators in various gram panchayats chosen under SAGY. The progress data is being entered by the District Collectors/Charge Officers of the respective Gram Panchayat which is visible to the State Nodal Officers also.  

The Ministry of Rural Development has decided to field visit few of the Gram Panchayats whose data is available on record. These field visits will be conducted by a team consisting of two officials from MoRD as per the list attached. The team will validate the Panchayat Darpan data and Village Development Plan progress updated on website by respective Charge Officer. These visits will happen between 25th July, 2016 to 31st July, 2016.

You are requested to instruct the concerned officials from your State to facilitate these field visits and to provide all logistic support in this regard. Charge Officers of these Gram Panchayats should also be instructed to remain present with the relevant record during the field visit.
