Initiating the pre-budget discussions with the officers, Navin Choudhary described both these Departments as key to transforming the rural economy and its development scenario and directly connected with the grass-root system. He said the Government is committed to support these departments to mitigate the problems of rural populace, particularly the farming community. He called for proper utilization of funds meant for flagship programmes like MG NREGA which are aimed at to uplift the rural and poor population.
Principal Secretary also called for massive awareness for the newly elected Sarpanchs and Panchs to educate them about their role, responsibilities, area of operation and duties under the provisions of Panchayati Raj system so that they can deliver in a better way.
In order to give benefits of various schemes to the farmers, the Principal Secretary asked the officers of Cooperative Department to further promote the cooperative movement and cluster approach. He laid stress on promotion of agro-based projects like dairy farms, poultry farms and fishery farms etc with the cooperative concept.
Navin asked the Super Bazar and JAKFED to enthuse new energy to their functioning to make them self-sustainable and income generating units. He asked for evolving innovations to compete in the market and enhancing the consumer outreach. He said consumers want quality and genuine rates and the PSUs must evolve something new to attract the consumers if they have to sustain.
Navin suggested several measures to make these PSUs as profit earning and asked the Super Bazar authorities to set up consumer sale outlets in the Secretariat premises, Mini Secretariats in the districts, Government colonies and other such potential areas, for which the Government will facilitate by providing them necessary spaces.
