The district rural development authority (DRDA) would spend Rs 1.20 crore for the development of 12 villages in Kullu district under Mukhiyamantri Adarsh Gram Yojana this year, the DRDA project officer Sanjeev Dheeman said.
Dheeman said that 12 villages would be selected under various blocks in the district, where Rs 10 lakh in each village would be spent on development works.
Only those villages would be selected for the purpose, where 40% population of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe live, to strengthen them economically and socially.
Under the scheme, the DRDA provides electricity facility, potable water for villagers, road connectivity facility and residential facility to poor people.
Dheeman said that gram panchayat would sent a resolution to their block development officer concerned for approval that in which villages it wanted to execute the scheme for the development of villagers.
