Rajasthan was earlier known for shift in sand dunes and weather. Today, ‘the desert state’ is famous for shift in government proceedings that whipped up a storm of its own. In an attempt to reach out to natives at their place, Raje shifted her government from capital city Jaipur to remote villages for a few days. Powerful schemes like ‘Nyay Aapke Dwar‘, ‘Aapka Jila, Aapki Sarkar‘ and ‘Jan Kalyan Shivir‘ were unveiled to help government connect with people and to deliver law and services at every doorstep. At present, when government is at the threshold of its fourth year, we present you Rajasthan Report Card to estimate the growth of government in every sphere.
Sarkar Aapke Dwaar
Sarkar aapke dwaar was a pervasive initiative by Rajasthan government to deliver solutions at the complainant’s doorstep to cut back on time and efforts wasted on reaching concerned authorities and departments. Under this scheme, CM along with other ministers conducted a 10-day meeting at Village Panchayat headquarters to list and resolve complaints on the spot. As per records, the campaign was a huge hit in 14 major cities including Bikaner, Bharatpur,Udaipur etc.
Aapka Jila Aapki Sarkar
Aapka Jila, Aapki Sarkar was a 3-day programme that began with district inspections in the morning, followed by group meetings in the evenings, which were conducted with office bearers, members of state and central executive, MLAs, MPs, District heads, District Magistrates, state ministers, department heads and presided CM. Under this scheme, Government reached all the districts to provide instant solutions to people’s problem. This was an attempt to speed up departmental proceedings by resolving pending files and complaints on spot. It was successfully executed in Nagaur, Badmer, Doongarpur, Dausa, Sawai Madhopur, Sirohi etc.
Nyaay Aapke Dwaar
Since land revenue is a major contributor to thousands of legal disputes in our country, Rajasthan Government, came up with a ground-breaking method to resolve impending cases and deliver quick justice by resorting to arbitration, mediation and conciliation—3 alternative methods of resolving disputes. ‘Rajasv Lok Adalats’, the brainchild of current government, were swift and mobile ‘mini’ courtrooms that arrived at the site of dispute to dispose of pending revenue cases in villages.
The success of this campaign is evident from the fact that more than 40 lakh cases were left pending in Revenue Courts in past one decade, but by the time this program attained its finishing state, more than 16000 camps were setup,21 lakhs, 43 thousand cases resolved and 61 villages declared litigation-free in the year 2015. It was a great source of relief of hundreds of farmers in remote villages that turn to suicides, slavery and crimes, in absence of government support.
Deendayal Upadhyay Jan Kalyan Shivir
Moved by the principles of BJP sangh founder, Late Pt. Deendayal Upadhyay, who was a patron of humanitarian values, Rajasthan govt. launched the concept of Jan Kalyan Shivir. These ‘help’ camps are organized every Friday at Gram Panchayat level to generate awareness regarding government schemes.
They were presided by government officers from different departments for delivering benefits and resolving complains. Important services delivered at these camps include free medical check-ups at health camp, distribution of sanitary napkins, school supplies and medicines, issuing Bhamashah cards, registering disable individuals for database and executing Kshetriya Vikas yojana in the presence of Panchayat Heads and collectors.
These camps have been held in more than 50 locations until now and they’re still on the run.
The prodigious results of reformatory policies reflect the steadfastness and onerous efforts of CM Vasundhara Raje. Consistency and innovation in government policies is what it takes for the authorities to establish a progressive nation by working on the ground level. With this approach, Raje government stepped into the 4th year of its tenure, committed to deliver effective governance in every village, city and district.
