DIRECTOR GENERAL of the National Productivity Council and secretary with the Union government Kamal Tawari said that maximum autonomy needed to give momentum to country’s development.
Tawari was in the city as chief guest of a workshop on ‘Enhancing rural productivity through cluster development’ organised by the council here on Saturday. Tawari said that ‘Dadi Ka Gyan’ (grand mother’s knowledge) was an important component for over all development.
He further said, “Most of us do not make much use of resources available surrounding us and give more emphasis to other things, which are mostly out of our reach or for the same one has to put extra efforts.”
Nothing could be executed mere with discussions. However, a systematic planning and appropriate execution of the plans was must to gain the productivity.
“Most of us do not know right sense of productivity, therefore, proper training needed to know about the productivity. Hence, the council has an idea of giving training to the people engaged in rural areas social work including non-governmental organisations,” he said.
“There should not be any hesitation in involving religion-based organisation in development activities and their influence on common people in our country was very much visible,” said Tawari.
He cited the example of few north east states and said that their church were playing effective role in controlling the social activities of their followers. “Same way in other parts few temple and mosque do play an impressive impact on their followers,” he added.
Tawari said, “Our country required a marketing network like other foreign countries are running in our country. It will help our producers.”
During the workshop, people identified by the high power committee of the council for their major contribution in the field of rural development were felicitated. The other prominent who shared their experiences were director of environment of the council Dr AK Saxena, senior deputy director of the council Dr RD Mishra, director of Subhash Children Society Kamal Kant Tiwari and advisor to council Suresh Gupta.
