Q.20:- You are residing in a village. If you are asked to advice the village panchayat, what kinds of activities would you suggest for the improvement of your village which would also generate employment.

 

Answer



The suggestions I would suggest for the improvement of your village which would also generate employment:
1. Focus on poverty alleviation programmes providing employment generation opportunities such as construction of roads, schools etc.
2. Rural workers should be imparted technical knowledge and modern know-how that will not only increase their productivity but also enhance their acceptability of modernisation.
3. Easy and cheap availability of finance and credits so rural people can start small scale industries.
4. Development of community assets by generating wage employment through construction of houses, financial assistance for constructing houses, laying of rural roads etc.
