According to a release issued here by the AP state government, the Chief Minister’s call to participate in developing smart villages and smart wards has received positive responses from about 12,745 people.

The state government would set up an independent organisation to look after the activities of smart villages and smart cards, the release said.

The state government has set a target of about 20 development indicators like education, health and sanitation to eradicate inequalities in villages and to accelerate them on the path of comprehensive growth.

Under the scheme, villagers would have to devise a plan for development of their villages in areas of education, health, drinking water, roads, telecommunication network, skill development and others in assistance and co-ordination with corporates, business houses as well as NRIs.
