Uttarakhand Government today approved the provision of 100 litres of fuel or Rs 10,000 per month for vehicles of Block Pramukhs to undertake site inspections.
The Panchayati Raj director Banshidhar Tiwari issued a direction to this effect on Thursday. The director stated that provision will be facilitated through untied grant under the 15th finance commission. Meanwhile, this decision has been welcomed by the Panchayat representatives. The Pramukh Sangathan head Darshan Danu said that the organisation had met the Panchayati Raj minister Satpal Maharaj some days ago.
The Panchayat representatives had raised various demands which had been pending for many years including provision of petrol or diesel for the vehicles of the Block Pramukhs.
The minister had directed the Panchayati Raj secretary and director to take necessary action without delay. Danu said that the Pramukhs are happy with the order issued on Thursday and have thanked the minister for facilitating this development.
