Objectives of Paray Paray Samadhan Prakalpa-ArthikDisha

With the introduction of earlier Duare Sarkar Prakalpa, the camps were flooded with the prospective beneficiaries. Really it helped to bring crores of people under the ambit of Government’s various social benefit schemes.

Keeping in mind its earlier success story, the Chief Minister of West Bengal on 28.12.2020 announced that a new Paray Samadhan Campaign is going to be introduced very recently. This Prakalpa is not an individual-oriented program, rather it will address the problems in your locality that bothers the residents of that area most.

The main objective of this scheme is to address the core problems of your locality like water logging problems, drinking water problems, adequate toilets at school, broken roads problems, culvert problems and street lights of the locality, adequate doctors and health staffs at health centres and many more.

So, you can see that the Duare Sarkar Prakalpa addressed your individual problems, it helped you to voice your grievances and now the Paray Paray Samadhan yojana will address the core problems of the community itself.

This programme is not meant for individual problems, this time the Government is determined to uproot the common day to day problems of your neighbourhood.

Though not very big infrastructural development facilities can be provided through this campaign but the lack of communication or service gap will be addressed instantly through this scheme.

Services to be rendered by Paray Paray Samadhan campaign?

As I told earlier that this Paray Samadhan Prakalpa is not meant for addressing your individual problems. If you still have not taken the benefits of the services rendered by the Duare Sarkar Prakalpa, you can still opt for this till 31st January 2021.

However, this new program has been designed to solve the core problems of your neighbourhood and the problems of your locality.

The services to be rendered by this Paray Samadhan Campaign is like solving the most common problems of your locality such as pipeline based drinking water supply, waterlogging problem, regular drainage cleaning, adequate VAT for garbage disposal, broken roads, adequate pay and use toilets, new drainage system, all-round street lights at your locality.

Therefore, you can see that very intelligently the Government is addressing the core problems of your neighborhood. Earlier they won the hearts of crores of people and now they came up with the new idea of solving common issues of the area or locality.

The Government of West Bengal is really very much optimistic that this Paray Paray Samadhan campaigns would be able to address its core objectives and would be a great success like Duare Sarkar Campaigns.

Though we have not received any official documents containing the whole process yet, it is expected to come out very quickly before starting off the programme.

Need for Paray Paray Samadhan Prakalpa 2021?

It has come to the knowledge that more than 10,000 complaints cum grievances already reached the Chief Minister Office(CMO). People reached to Duare Sarkar camps and found that community-related problems can’t be solved there.

So, this prompted the Government to think about a new parrallel program that will take care of the day to day problems at local levels. Govt. found that there are many cases where personnel gaps and lack of services rendered the dwellers unhappy at local levels.

This needs to be addressed in a mission mode. Officials have been asked to act proactively. So, by introducing this scheme, the main aim of the govt. is to pave way with the sufferings of the citizens on their daily lives.

One must keep in mind that this is a community-centric service at local levels and no individual case would be entertained. You come to the Government, and express your sufferings, the Govt. officials would be there for an immediate resolution.
