Once the scheme is implemented, 7000 energy assistants will be recruited by the government to run the scheme smoothly, which will be their repair and maintenance work if the street lights go bad.
Benefits of AP YSR Jagananna Palle Velugu Scheme-
More than 2.7 lakh villages in the state will benefit from the Jagananna Palle Velugu scheme 2020 launched by the Andhra Pradesh government. The benefits of this scheme are as follows:
- LED bulbs will be used in street lights and these bulbs cost much less than other halogen bulbs.
- LED bulbs don’t use any type of toxic chemical, due to which these bulbs are good for the environment.
- There is no filament inside the LED bulb, due to which when we light them; they do not burn at all, but slow burn. There is no risk of fuse and the validity of their movement is also very high.
- The scheme is being implemented by the government in remote areas also, due to which the cost of maintenance is not high; therefore LED bulbs are being used.
- Women will feel safer by having lights in the streets.
- LED bulbs consume less energy and provide more illumination due to which they are very useful.
- Andhra Pradesh government wants to remove darkness from inside the state. And this is also the goal of the government to illuminate every single state in which state.
What is the Complaint Monitoring System (CMS)?
Due to a lack of proper supervision of the schemes implemented by the state government, once the work of the scheme is completed, there is no one to take care of the obstruction in the upcoming scheme and the expenditure incurred on the scheme goes in vain. Keeping all these things in mind, the state government has passed a proposal to implement a Compliant Monitoring System (CMS) in the state. On 30 June 2020, a high-level meeting, headed by Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Minister PR Reddy, took this decision unanimously. The main reason for taking this decision by the state government was that more than 80% of the public representatives were saying that if there is some problem in the government plan after its completion without supervision, and then it is not resolved. Due to which the benefit of that scheme is not fully available to the public.
Keeping in mind all these reasons, the state government decided to reform the CMS. The street lights installed by the government under the Andhra Pradesh Jagananna Palle Velugu Scheme 2020 will be fully monitored. If a street light goes bad, the energy assistants will fix it. For which the state government has decided to recruit 7000 energy servants and a monitoring officer will also be deployed up to the district level for the work being done correctly. This decision taken by the Government of Andhra Pradesh is very important because even after the implementation of the scheme, if there is any deficiency or any defect, then it will be rectified so that the state will continue to benefit from the scheme.
