The News Minute | October 4, 2014 | 12.20 pm IST Taking a cue from Telangana, the Andhra Pradesh government has initiated a micro-planning programme. The programme christened as Janmabhumi-Maa Vooru programme involves collection of data on population, resource availability, issues, etc. at the village level. The programme will be conducted till October 20, Deccan Chronicle reported. The Telangana government had done a one-day-long survey in all its villages to find out village-level information. After seeing the success of its neighbour the AP government has now decided to introduce a similar programme. Officials have been asked to conduct gram sabhas and also collect data like availability of water resources, beneficiaries of various government schemes, land available for cultivation and the fallow land, types of loans, power consumption, etc. The programme is being conducted at a cost of Rs. 50 crore. Revenue officials have also been ordered to conduct frequent meetings with people to find out their problems and forward the findings to higher officials. The Chief Minister has asked his ministers to not stay put in the state capital but, to attend the Janmabhumi-Maa Vooru meetings and get first hand information. The CM himself will be visiting all the 13 districts in the state.
