Stories of Change

Levelling of a playground was undertaken under NREGS in Gram Panchayat Jamunia Khurd in Chindwara district of Madhya Pradesh.

A play ground was levelled under the scheme in the Panchayat . However levelling was done very poorly. The Social audit in Chindwara revealed that  first the material for levelling was not laid and road rollers worked only for half a day. The payment however, was much more material and roller –days. The Gram Sabha objected to the bills. The resolution was passed that the secretary who has fraudulently siphoned off the money should redo the levelling work or formal complaint will be lodged against him. The secretary agreed to do the work.

Lalkui Kiosk makes online application for 400 toiles and facilitates access of motivation benefit of Rs. 12000 each.

The Oracle information Kiosk in LALKUI made online application for 400 beneficiaries towards claiming the ‘motivation’ money for construction of toilet. Their application for construction of toilet was also made on-line through the kiosk. The kiosk manager ‘sdfghjk’ also informs the beneficiaries when the releases are made by banks and reaches the beneficiaries’ account, saving repeated trips to banks to enquire. 400 beneficiaries not only constructed the toilets but also got ‘motivation money’ of Rs. 12000 each for toilet construction.
