Information and broadcasting minister Manish Tewari on Tuesday launched the UPA government’s official 2014 calendar, which aims at showcasing the “economic and social transformation” of the country during the current government’s two straight terms.
The wall calendar will go where android screens don’t: nearly 1200,000 copies will be dispatched to remote locations, panchayats, district headquarters, post offices and primary health clinics, apart from all government offices.
Each month in the almanac, whose preparation was overseen by Tewari, corresponds to a thematic description of one of the government’s key flagship programmes.
“The desktop calendar still has a unique place in the lives of millions of Indians. It connects the echelons of power in Delhi and the rest of India,” Tewari said.
The calendar depicts the impact of schemes such as Aadhar, the food security law, the land acquisition Act, right to education, tribal empowerment, Metro connectivity, telecom revolution and direct benefit transfer scheme.
