Government policies are to be closely monitored
Women Welfare Associations which were earlier known as saving organizations are now keeping a close watch on the functioning of the state government policies. As this associations have a strong network right from state level to village level, it has come under the notice of government. The Government has decided that by using the services of these associations every level of policies information can be easily acquired. SERP which had earlier worked for the linkage of the bank accounts in these associations has come forward for this. Last year without any information, women within the age group of 18-35 have mutually participated in providing information regarding the implementation of the policies and their decisions. With these close observations, the errors in the policies implementation can be easily rectified. Earlier in 2002 June under the “Velugu policy” of SERP, women groups were formed, providing them support, building their profile, bank linkage and other financial support was provided to them. At that time, the women from these groups were limited only to making of cloth material, snacks, pickles and other household material. Later on with the membership of students who finished 10th and intermediate in these groups, SERP has extended its limits and they were into Self service training, agriculture, banking and insurance works were allotted to them. Later on as the state went online, it required huge man power to understand the functioning of policies for this, new Internet services were launched. Tata Trust and Google India has provided them training through Blue fox company. In 2016 November after demonetization, the women from this organization acted as volunteers in helping the villagers understand cashless transactions. Earlier women from these groups provided training for 6, 72,602 and now the Government is using their service in tracking the information of the policies being implemented in state.
When they were asked regarding the collection of information, SERP CEO DR. P Krishna Mohan said that National Info metrics Centre will provide App’s for all the sections in various departments. CEO said that by utilizing their services, they are getting an additional amount of Rs 2,500-Rs 5000. He said that at present their volunteers are working for Agricultural sector.
