Hyderabad: The TRS-led government in Telangana is considering a proposal to introduce Building Regularisation Scheme (BRS) and Land Regularisation Scheme (LRS) also in villages. Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has set up a committee headed by panchayat raj minister Errabelli Dayakara Rao. The Chief Minister said, “After the committee submits their report, we will discuss it before taking a decision.”
A marathon meeting was held at Pragathi Bhavan, which lasted for 10 hours. In the meeting, the Chief Minister along with the district collectors reviewed the Palle Pragathi programme, which is a 30-day plan to make villages clean and green. The Chief Minister appreciated the efforts of the electricity department for putting in order the hanging electric lines in the villages. Mr Chandrasekhar Rao said, “We need to replace outdated electric poles in villages and towns and old wiring. The department needs to address wiring issues at the earliest.”
Ideal Home award
The Chief Minister announced that the state government would award ‘Ideal House’ for keeping their home and surroundings clean and green.
Also, “The state government will bear the cost of S.K. Dey insurance scheme for panchayat staff. If a panchayat employee dies, his family will get Rs 2 lakh insurance compensation. The scheme is like the Rythu Bandhu scheme. The Telangana government named the insurance scheme after S.K. Dey to honour him. S.K. Dey led the panchayat Panchayati raj movement in the country.
The Chief Minister said, “The problem of overflowing sewerage should be addressed and every house should set up a soak pit. Funds under the MGNREGS (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme) will be utilised to construct soak pits.”
All village roads should be registered in the name of the panchayat. Borders for every village should be marked and recorded. Palle Pragati programme would be conducted three times every year. The state government will take up Palle Pragathi for 10 days in January, June, and September. I ask the officials to prepare the guidelines in this regard,” added Mr Chandrasekhar Rao.
