SUMMARY OF SECTOR WISE SCHEMES

 

In Burdwan district, out of Eight sector under NREGS, more works have been executed in sector – 01,02,07,08.
In this district, more backward villagers are benefited due to improvement of village roads under NREGS & this is done under sector – 08 . Outlook of this sector is --- 2369 nos. schemes are already completed & 1862 nos. schemes are presently ongoing. Due to improvement of village roads, now villagers can easily run for urgency. Maximum numbers of roads are now converted from kachha road to Moorum road.
Flood is a major problem to us because due to flooding of water, more agricultural land are affected, more growing crops are destroyed, more kachha village houses are destroyed. But this problems are solved under NREGS & Protect the river side as far as possible. This work has done under sector- 07.

For development of Agricultural land & achieving more crops, more field channel are created under NREGS fund & more plantation are done in sides of field channel.  This work has done under sector – 01 & 03.
In village areas, in so many days more ponds could not renovated due to lack of fund. But today it is possible for NREGS & more ponds are renovated & fish culture is done .This work has done under sector – 01.
