It is in line with this vision that Swaniti provides end-to-end solutions, including knowledge support, on-ground implementation and data tools to both Parliamentarians and government officials in order to catalyze development at the grassroots.
We recognised glaring gaps in the system
Insufficient Government Capacity
Insufficient Financial Resources
People left out of the framework
We devised a multi-pronged solution
Working with Parliamentarians
To aid Parliamentarians, the Indian government created provisions for
MPLAD: The Local Area Development Fund provides MPs with 5 crore rupees annually to support on constituency development issues.
SAGY: Known as the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana or Model Village program, it is designed for MPs to adopt one Gram Panchayat and aid in transforming it into a model village.
DISHA Committee: MPs are chairpersons of the District Infrastructure Scheme Advisory Committee. The committee is expected to provide oversight on eighteen flagship government schemes within the constituency.
