J&K administration has taken slew of measures along with policy decisions in order to change the life of people in the rural areas. Apart from focusing on the road connectivity in the rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir the government through the panchayats is trying to empower the people at the grass root level.
In this direction recently LG Manoj Sinha launched Mission ‘One Gram Panchayat-One DIGI-Pay Sakhi’ in J&K. He distributed 80 Aadhaar Enabled Payment Systems under JKRLM to promote digital banking & financial services in remote areas; Inaugurates week-long training programme for Krishi & Pashu Sakhis.
Initially, DIGI-Pay facility was to be provided in around 2000 remote villages of Jammu and Kashmir and subsequently the government has the target to provide this facility to all the remote villages.
When this facility would be available in all the remote villages of Jammu and Kashmir it would be a game changer for the socio-economic growth of these villages.
Nari Shakti’s social & economic independence is the bedrock of any nation’s progress is the fact of life and the similar sentiments were expressed by Manoj Sinha while providing this facility to the remote villages.
DIGI-Pay, Krishi & Pashu Sakhi will further accelerate the efforts of the J & K government in Empowering Women and making them a key partner in UT’s development journey.
