Indian Social Responsibility Network along with the team of Centre for Digital Financial Inclusion initiated a village development plan in the Tarapur Village of Neemuch district and Behpur village of Mandsaur district in Madhya Pradesh. A survey for need assessment was carried out to develop SAGY Gram Panchayats as model Gram Panchayats so that all the relevant government schemes, projects and resources are executed properly. The data collection in the gram panchayat was carried out through an app called KoBoCollect. The app is comprised of two different forms, one for data from households and another for data about the villages.
On the basis of the data, CDFI and ISRN will prepare the VDP with the involvement of village panchayat members and village functionaries. CDFI and ISRN will also plan for the resource mobilization, project planning, implementation strategy and facilitation towards fulfilling the and needs of VDP.
