DC Kupwara reviews micro-level plans under TAD programme


KUPWARA, MAY 24: Deputy Commissioner Kupwara, Khalid Jahangir, today convened a meeting to review the micro-level plans under the Transformation of Aspirational Districts (TAD) programme of Government of India.

The meeting took a comprehensive review of activity plans under key sectors of transformation including health, nutrition, education, basic infrastructure and skill development.

The DC impressed upon all present to accelerate the pace of progress on the already identified outcome indicators by rolling out activity plans formulated under the TAD programme. He directed the concerned district officers to constitute teams at the grassroots level for achieving defined goals within the stipulated timeframe.

Pertinently, various activities are being carried out in the Kupwara district after being identified as the aspirational district. The district has done remarkably well in rolling out the plan and has achieved the third rank out of 115 districts identified from across the country under the TAD programme.

The TAD programme launched by the Prime Minister in January this year involves convergence (of central and state schemes), collaboration (of Central, State level ‘Prabhari’ officers and district collectors) and competition among districts driven by a mass movement. It aims to quickly and effectively transform districts.
