"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

The government of Andhra Pradesh has created a village secretariat system, where the village secretary is authorized to handle many things at the village level itself. LOK SATTA has proactively interacted with the government and persuaded them to consider introducing a “Panchayat Citizen’s Charter”.

 
 

  Achievements

 

 

Project yet to start.

 

  Goals

 

 

Currently the citizen’s charters in Municipalities are under implementation in AP and they have a reasonably good track record. But in the panchayats there is no such thing and we will have to start from scratch. We hope to bring in a fundamental transformation in the way services are delivered in the villages and change the nature of relationship between the government and the common man.
