Chief Minister of Telangana, Mr K. Chandrasekhar Rao, decided to implement the Grama Jyothi scheme for rural development, and this is done through the timely release of sufficient funds. Fund allotment for the scheme is done based on the village’s population. The villages are required to chalk out a development strategy for their villages. Rs. 25000 crores would be spent in five years from the implantation of the scheme.

The scheme provides basic amenities in rural areas, such as roads, drinking water, drains, sanitation, etc. Gram Panchayats will be given all the authorities to plan how the funds will be allotted. They will address poverty, social security, education, agriculture, health nutrition, SC/ST welfare, and other issues.

The Telangana government is confident that the Gramajyothi scheme will effectively influence the quality of life in rural areas. The Gramajyothi scheme is different from all the development and welfare programs launched by the State government until now. Under the Gramajyothi program, Gramasabha will decide what development works should be undertaken and implemented.

The Gramajyothi scheme is an extension of the Mana ooru Mana Pranalika scheme launched by the KCR government. But then, it was unclear how much money would be available for the village’s development. Many government departments work at rural levels. All the officials in this department now will have to be responsible for the development and welfare programs and work to extend cooperation to each other.

A Large number of people in India live in villages. Villagers know better what their village lacks, and Gramajyothi allows them to discuss and decide on what development works they have to do for the development of their village. Gramasabha plays a key role in implementing the Gramajyothi scheme. The decision of Gramasabha is essential, and works are taken up based on them. Sanitation, drinking water, health, nutritious food, education, natural resources management, agriculture, and basic amenities are the seven important areas the Gramajyothi program will concentrate on.
