Dimapur, April 21: Additional Deputy Commissioner Bhandari, Changimeren Chang chaired a departmental co-ordination meeting with all the head of offices under Bhandari sub-division on April 18 at the Dobashi Customary Court building, Bhandari.
Stressing on the agendas of the meeting, the ADC stated that performance of all departments of the sub division will be keenly watched and updated periodically by the District Planning and Developmental Board, Wokha, and encouraged the head of offices to adhere to their roles and responsibilities for the interest of the general public and their respective departments.
The meeting deliberated and resolved to adopt a model village under Bhandari sub-division and undertake a convergence programme for which departmental committee was set up to work out modalities and select a village.
It was also decided that BDO Bhandari and Branch Manager SBI and Baghty will liaise for opening of bank accounts and holding of village cluster camps for Aadhar enrolment and accounts opening.
Requirement for opening of accounts under SBI with Aadhar number to avail benefits by the job card holders under the MGNREGA scheme was discussed at length as it was stated by the concerned department that presently out of the thousands job card holders only limited number of beneficiaries have bank accounts.
During the discussion it was also highlighted that the banking sector which is said to be catering to the service of 68 villages of the Bhandari sub- division alone has limited manpower and infrastructure due to which difficulties and challenges are faced in the digitised system.
Running of illegal mills along the National Highway from Merapani to Bhandari, absence of proper office building for Food and Civil Supplies, Bhandari etc. were also discussed in the meeting.
