Officials told to conduct Grama Sabhas to identify beneficiaries


Srikakulam Collector J. Nivas directed all the officials concerned to conduct Grama Sabhas in all villages on Wednesday to identify beneficiaries for various schemes.

He said that the officials should understand guidelines for various schemes and explain them to the people during the Grama Sabhas.
