Saturday, August 29th, 2009 | mumbaihikers | Uncategorized
School education curriculum does not sufficiently educate on History of Forts & Sahydris beyond 4th Std – appeal to Govt. Education Dept to include elaborate History of Forts & Sahyadris in school curriculums beyond 4th Std & also introduce specialisation subjects in College
No basic facilities (electricity, phones, medical facilities, transport) – help & guide village sarpanch to make applications to Electricity Boards for electricity & MTNL/Tata/Reliance to set up phone lines, State Transport for buses, Health Dept for medical facilties for the village
– make use of RTI (Right to Information Act) to followup on status of such applications
lack of water during non-monsoon seasons – apply to Govt authorities to make water provisions for village (wells, bore-wells)
conflict between govt agencies – use RTI
– report to media
providing opportunities to villagers during non agricultural season/off season – inform villages about any Govt schemes for rural areas on taking bank loans for setting up village industries (tailor shop, telephone booth, computer printing etc)
shift of responsibility by Govt. authorities – appropriate use of the RTI act that can hold actual authorities accountable
some areas ignored/neglected by authorities – make written application to authorities informing about the same
– use media to publish this negligence
