Chairing a review meeting of the various schemes implemented under the department today at the conference hall of his office,  Biswajit stressed at length on the importance of the scheme.

All necessary trainings for district-wise officials required for uploading data on the website should be imparted at the earliest, the minister said.

Biswajit highlighted the issue of water conservation and expressed the need to encourage the people of the state to adopt the traditional and old ways of water conservation.

He said both the hills and the valley have their own techniques and knowledge of water conservation and that the ancient techniques are more economical than many of the present technologies available.

During the meeting, concern officials highlighted that the Jal Shakti Abhiyan has been implemented in six water-stress blocks of Chandel and Senapti districts (three blocks from each district) since the start of July and will continue till September 15 this year.

Biswajit observed that the concerned DCs should also have proper knowledge on the utilisation of MLA Local Area Development Funds under their jurisdiction.

Regarding PMAY-G implementation in the state, the minister instructed the concerned authorities to strengthen their effort to achieve the state’s target and increase the registration of beneficiaries at the earliest.

Principal secretary MH Khan said the DPCs and DCs are major stakeholders in the successful implementation of the scheme. He said that it is their responsibility to educate the public of the scheme and its implementation.
